    but since it started analog, is of interest to analog users, and so far ends analog, I would prefer to keep it where it is.

    Just my opinion (as a moderator).

    And no mud slinging! I think this is great! (although I usually throw the first mud ball...)

    Fuji makes pretty much every professional film in 220 rolls, and Kodak has some choice also. I may be true though that your local dealer does not have that in stock.

    Once you enlarge or scan beyond around 4 or 5X, you start see the difference as lens sharpness goes soft, while tonal softness crumbles into the sharpness of grain.

    If you start with a very good film+lens combination that yields 80 line pairs/mm and enlarge by 5x, you're down to 13 line pairs/mm. It's still sharp, but that's about it. Beyond that, quality and luminosity really start to degrade.

    So you can get a nice 5x7 from a very good 35mm negative. On 6x7 film, you can get around 11x14 and still have a respectable image. On 4x5, it's bigger still.

    This is all based on the assumption that people will walk right up to your photos and look closely - but if they're meant to appear on a billboard, the numbers are all different.
