Nobody's arguing the point that we don't like to carry on about scanners at APUG. And nobody's arguing against this being a site devoted to analogue photography! But to make the O.P feel like he ignited WWIII when in fact this grey issue comes up over and over and over... And every great now and then somebody says a little something about scanning film... a pre-DSLR/photoshop technique used by all of us who actually bother to post in the galleries... and there is this unnecessarily allergic response.

My suggestion is for everybody to just let it go. Some people have hardened and fortified positions and that's just the way it is.

Off to make some 11x14 contact prints...
