    You'll either have to scan the microfilm at a very high resolution or
    make an inter-negative.

    Ideally you can find someone with an old 35mm camera hooked to a
    microscope. You could then shoot an inter-neg using ortho film and
    get a pretty good image off of it.

    Just get as high as possible resolution drum scan of the original film.
    Internegs, microscopes, etc will only degrade the final image.

    Microfilm is all generally ortho, so you can reproduce it pretty well
    without well without degradation.

    I've never worked to much with microfilm, but I don't remember ever
    seeing any with continuous tone (or color). I think it would much
    harder to deal with the grain on really small images if you had
    anything but a litho film.

    But a inter-neg on litho, from a litho original is going to be a
    pretty faithful repro. -- and of course you can then go as big as you
    want without any grain.
