SInce all this discussion about scanning and the Beoon, I thought I'd share how I use my Epson 850 for previews and contact sheets.
After I develop film and dry, I lay down the negatives directly on the scanner, then scan and create a tif.
I open it in Photoshop and adjust globally to get them to look good to my eye.
Then I print the contact sheet on glossy paper. I use 11 x 14 and 'scale to fit' media. That of course enlarges the negatives (positives at this point) on the contact sheet. I had this paper for years and since I never use glossy paper, I kill two birds with one stone.
Further than that, I either mark up the contact sheet to decide what to scan and/or I view them in PS or LR and can cut them out and adjust as needed.
The image quality of these bulk pictures is really very good and clearly good enough to decide what you want to scan. Plus I hole punch and include as a cover of the 36 negatives.
I have included a sample from the contact sheet I made tonight.
