For now, I get very passable results by wet printing a 5x7, then shooting that with the same digicam (no C.U. filter needed) on a copy stand.

Most of my APUG portfolio are copy stand digi shots of 8x10 prints. I'm inclined to just take a pass on neg scanning/copying.....there's also the side benefit of seeing my printing improving with all the practice!...AND, I'm helping create a demand for silver gel paper!
