I shot a roll of ISO400 35mm color print film with my Olympus OM-1. I sent them out to Kodak for developing. I also paid extra to get the picturs put on to a CD. All of the prints that I got back look like they came from a 2.5MP digital camera. The picture files on the CD are small files... 650K each. The 6x4" prints do not look like they were exposed directly from the negitives. It looks to me like they made the small digital files from the negitives and then they made the prints from the digital files.

Does anyone know if most of the film developing machines out there all do this.?.

If thats the case I'll either have to pay a lot more to have my film developed at a professional developing lab or just shoot strictly digital so I can have larger files to make prints from.

thanks!

Sounds to me like someone wasn't paying attention.
Last year I was shooting baseball for my newspaper with a 35mm and getting the film developed to a disc at the local super center...the images I got back were in the neighborhood of 180dpi at 14 inches wide.
I'd ask them to do them again.

I can't say about Kodak, but I believe most prints are being made digitally nowadays. The film is scanned and the images color corrected and printed. The print is a photographic print, but not from the negative or slide. I saw this done at a local lab.

A lot of places that use Fuji and Noristu machines will scan the negatives to C.D. at a low resolution if you don't ask or tell them otherwise.

I shot a roll of film and paid extra for the c.d. and got home and the files were 1200x1800. The next time I went back I asked some questions and they told me they could scan them as high as 2000 x 3000 (if my memory serves correct) but they charged extra for the higher resolution size files.

This was several years ago and I shoot digital now, but my understanding is that the fugi machines will give you 2 size files, one for quick viewing in your browser, and a higher resolution one for printing.

As for your shots being printed digitally, most of the newer machines simply scan your negative and then print digitally.
