I have trouble keeping Velvia and E100VS from getting too dense for my scanner, a Nikon Coolscan V. They (Velvia particularly) looks good projected but they just don't scan well, easily at least. My guess it's got a lot to do also that I'm just doing 35mm film and the frame is just so small for a pedestrian scanner. It does a good job making average films look good, so the Ektachrome, Fujichrome, Kodak Gold, etc. look fine for what I do.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
