Can you Get Quality Scans from the Photo Drive up?

When I started the Porsche 912 site, many of the pictures were either scanned from prints or from Photo CD from Wolf camera. Now that we have the Canoscan FS2710 we can compare the results.

This example is a shot of a swap meet in Hayward taken in June, 2000. The picture was take with a Canon APS cammera. The film was Fuji nexia A200. The scan was from a 4x6 print and a flatbed scanner. Not good.

After

Here is the new scan done in September, 2001 using the Canoscan. The improvement is great, the difference obvious. I've now gone back and rescanned most of the early APS negatives.
