Mr. Slide would win hands down Lloyd. B - a 100 ISO slide or print image contains approximately 44 megabytes of data ( pixels ) - the top of the line pro DSLR's take a 24 meg .RAW image that only contains about 22 megapixels of data . Once film is scanned , it's digital and any can be manipulated with the same software as an image from a digital camera - 16" X 24" , and 20" X 30" enlargements from film or film scans kick butt over digital camera capture enlarged to the same size ( assuming the film was properly exposed , developed , and in focus ) - it all depends on the end use of the image !

Waldo/ thankyou for the info on the pixels,and slide film,that explains why the old slide shots i scanned came out so clear. Also explain's why my Great Grandfather's ''plate glass'' B/W photos have so much detail contained,even after 100 odd year's. you have inspired me to load a slide film into the old Cannon T70 and go take a few shot's. If you get time can you have a look at my G Granfathers B/W photos on my gallery, and tell me if you think they would turn out well if i got them enlarged. Lloyd

Gotta be honest Lloyd. B - bringing old photos into the digital era is a quandry without a negative or quality image to scan - lots of time and $$ involved unless you do it yourself - my recommendations would be capturing all of the old images with whatever camera / scanner you have and learn some software !
