Jake is a great guy and a reliable scanner operator. He uses a Dainippon Screen dt-s 1045 AI, capable of an excellent quality of scan.
If you demand the Dainippon Screen 8060's quality (Dainippon's flagship drum scanner) I'm in Northern Italy.
Recently I scanned and restored a ruined 11x14" color negative by Massimo Vitali and we printed a huge dyptich (each print approximately 180x220 cm) with LighJet printer at Grieger Lab in Dusseldorf (Gursky's, Struth's etc lab).
The final quality was amazing.
