Perhaps I need to search around again and see if I can find some other  
local options that I didn't find before. The company I used that does  
the large files has set prices and doesn't seem all that interested in  
being accommodating. They are very proud of saying that their files  
are "real data" with no interpolation, and this seems to be their main  
selling point. But I still had to do a lot of processing - mainly  
color correction. One thing I've noticed here - don't know if it's  
happening everywhere - is that there is lots of turnover with the  
companies who do both film and digital photography. Seems there's  
always another one springing up or going under.
