>Of course there are commercial conversion services but the easiest and most
>inexpensive way (if you don't have thousands of pages) would be to use a
>film scanner. There are several that are built for large format negatives
>and should work,
« should » !, mais en réalité, non ! Les numériseurs à
diapositives Agfa, Nikon, etc., ne fournissent pas de bons résultats,
même à 2700 dpi.
Pourquoi ? Parce que la source lumineuse est trop diffuse (pas
assez dure) : il faudrait une source ponctuelle.
>at worst you could use something like an Agfa Duoscan T1200
>which will scan an 5"X7" negative (probably bigger, that's just as big as we
>have done on it) at 1200 dpi native and interpolate much farther.
