I blew some serious $ buying an Olympus E-10 hoping to get the flexibility of
digital but the images have never been sharp or "snappy" enough to be taken
seriously. Yes, I have jocked them around in Photoshop but it still seems
rather pointless. Making prints from these files has been a long and winding
road...and costly...and, ultimately, they still don't do it for me.

Good news, though...if I spend EVEN MORE MONEY, I can get the latest Nikon
digital slr with 12 megapixels and then feel like even more of a dope.

Does this all remind you of that woman who paid $50,000 to get her cat
cloned? She could have gone down to a shelter and paid $75 AND saved a poor little
kitty from the gas chamber AND gotten a cat with a good personality (although
different from the deceased a clone is going to be anything more
than physically identical to the "clone-ee").

I can see that the digital enlarged neg thing is working out for a lot of
people...the parameters have been tested and tightened a lot. How do you go,
then? Digital capture to digitally produced neg to and "analog" alt process
print? Analog (traditional film) capture to a scan to a digi-neg to an analog
print? Oy!
