Mamiya RZ67 Pro II, 90 mm, Delta 400 in DDX.
Big negatives rule!
Thanks all I was actually annoyed at first with the beauty dish showing up in the image, then after looking at it I kind of liked the UFO mother-ship vibe it had.
big negatives rule. medium negatives are still pretty great.
By "big" I meant 120. Finding that my D7200+Micro-Nikkor 40/2.8g works nicely for 120 scans.
But that still chokes you to 24mp and the resolution of the lens. If you ever get a chance to make an actual wet print, you'll see the difference.
That's unlikely, so no point going there. Those 24mp and lens+a pro printed inkjet don't produce shameful results.
Then why not just take the original shot with the D7200 and 40mm lens?
while @cgw would probably be better off with a high quality scanner, "why not just shoot it with the DSLR" seems like a pretty weird conclusion.
How so? Isn't that the weakest link in the chain?
120 film can easily be scanned to create 150mp+ files. I shoot 6x7 and routinely make 160 to 170mp files. Let me know if there's a DSLR that can match that.
Plus, I'm not comparing scan technologies. I'm comparing it to paper & chemicals & red light bulbs.
