    What is the recommended CI (or gama) to develop negatives for scanning and than printing on a photo inkjet printer? Is the recommended CI different for films developed in "conventional" developers versus staining developers?

    BTW, the scanner I use is Epson 4990.

    When films are shot and developed to be scanned, are the considerations to determine the effective EI any different from when intended to enlarged and printed in a dark room?

    This question would be better answered by the good folks of http://www.hybridphoto.com, who know everything about hybrid workflows like yours.
