I asked this on another forum, but I'll see what people here think.... If I shoot film (in a 35mm SLR) and know that I'm going to scan the film and never make a direct print with it Which film would be best to use? I'm scaning my collection now and I've noticed I'm getting better results with Agfa Potrait 160 and that Kodak Royal Gold really is better than the more common Kodak Gold. For scanning I'm liking the low contrast in the Agfa film None of my negative were shot with the idea they'd be scanned. Same with my transparencies. Now I'm thinking that if I shoot film for scanning I might select a different film and expose it differently for the scanner. Some people have suggested I shot slides bt I don't think they capture the range of tomes that negs can. My best scanned negative are giving my better quality then my Nikon D50.
