Subject: [Leica] Digital: how to output?
From: JMWoo <>

After an offlist note, thought I'd ask this to the
community at large:

Been reading msgs. re: digital scanning with great
interest lately. I have two questions that some
seasoned vets might be able to answer:
1) How good are film scanners (i..e Nikon 4000
Coolscan) with black and white negatives (not the C41
2) How do most people output their finished prints? I
have an Epson 980 that's fine for drugstore
quality-type things, but can't imagine printing
anything on it that remotely approaches what I achieve
in the darkroom. 
3) Are you ever outputting to a film? The luxury of
being able to do most of my adjustments in Photoshop
and then output a negative to print traditionally onto
my favorite Ilford paper intrigues me.
