I htink we have different definitions of "decent". I have printed quite a bit off my fuji and the prints are amazing .. jst a sgood as film off the camera. What it does take is forgetting Walmar and talking to your Kodak specialist andgetting a relationship with your lab.

You may think that a luxury Hyundai is a decent car, personally having been in some of the most expensive cars in the world, Ferraris, Aston Martins, Rolls Royce, I can say the Hyundai doesn't compare. Actually some of the cameras I've used cost more than that Hyundai.

Each person has their limits of what is good, but you can't ask for Rolls Royce quality in a Hyundai price range.

Having worked with digital images close to 20 years now, I still see a big difference in quality between consumer digital and film.

As for what Walmar, Bill Drew, Fenlander, and Voxmagna said on the subject, I agree with them all.

That's strange because when i print 4x6's i dead set cannot tel the difference between my 35mm point and shoot and my digicam ... i am using 3mp at 4x6 so that may account for that so to speak.

When I used to work as a video technician (in the early days of VCRs) one of the jobs I had to do was set up machines in people's homes...I was amazed at how many TVs I saw that weren't set correctly. The picture might be slightly green or purple (depending on which way the tint control is set). These people are amazed at how much better the picture looked after you told them about it and adjusted the tint, but they never even thought that anything was wrong (a big part of it might be they didn't know you could adjust the tint). Some people can see the details more, and others can't see a difference.

It's like Trinitron/Aperture Grille monitors...some people can't see the wires (2-3 black lines) on the picture, but on that same monitor for people like me they jump out and are a constant distraction.

It's like music...some people couldn't tell if an instrument is in tune, while others can tell in an orchestra if one instrument is not in tune.

I dunno, i am pretty fussy to say the least and i am one of those guys that takes 7 hours to tune the colour on his TV :lol:

One thing i have found is that the printed images from my digicam appear to be sharper and definately better saturated than the 35mm prints. My missus nearl yfell over at the quality .. i think a lot has to do with spendign quality time with your processing lab and really getting to know th epeople and what you expect from then.

i used Black's (as much as they annoyed me) in TO and the guy was about 110 years old but he was a dead set expert and helped me enormously.
