This question is directed to people who have experience wet printing negatives and dry printing scanned negatives. I have an Epson V600 photo scanner and a darkroom. Recently I scanned some 35mm negatives and sent the digital files to Meijer for printing. I have done very little negative scanning but I was pleased with the results. When I compare the digital prints to darkroom prints from the same negatives I find that the digital prints are sharper, and the difference is not subtle. There is considerable more detail in the digital prints especially away from the center of the print. Even in the center, sharper results in the digital print. I am using a glass negative holder in a Focomat IC so the film is being held flat. It appears that the enlarger lens is not capable of accurately reproducing the detail in the negative. For comparison, I printed a negative on the Focomat with original Leitz lens (old for sure) and on a 23C Beseler enlarger with a 50mm Rodagon lens (bought new in the 1980's). The two enlargers produced similar results. I also used two different grain focusers to eliminate that variable. If there was a focusing issue, I believe the soft focus would be uniform across the print. Has anyone else had similar experience? Your input would be appreciated.
