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.
