Maybe I'm not seeing the same thing as you. I get similar results from my flatbed and it takes up a lot less of my time. Then again, I don't blow my pictures up to poster sized prints. Maybe a light box will take it up a notch?
Yeah, for web-sized images it is definitely overboard. The native size is 40" x 50" so it would be the way to go for making digital prints. I am getting an enlarger to try my hand at photographical printing.

The images themselves are just a test, as it is only my second roll of film I've ever shot. It is my first roll of film shot without any onboard light meters, and my first roll of film I've developed myself, so the images aren't meant to be awe inspiring or anything

Well, they seem pretty good to me.

Using a DSLR with a good macro lens and a light box, you get better images at much larger scales than you do with a high dollar drum scanner.
What's unclear to me in that method digitizing is how much density of the negative are you capturing, I wonder. A drum scanner gets a lot.

I wanted the separation from the background to be light, not focus, so I wanted the field as deep as possible. The background was lovely and I wanted it legible, at least as much as possible.

I also wanted it two stops darker than the flash aesthetically. So my options were f22/250 or f16 at 500, due to the highest speed of the shutter.

My thoughts too. The advantage of a drum scanner is not resolution.

For some reason I left a roll of Lomo 100 (Ferrania) half-scanned and half-uploaded earlier in the year. I came back to them at the weekend when I was on a major scanning mission. I realised afterwards that my SP1000 was under-exposing by a stop, so I asked the lab to push the film to compensate.

I really, really like this film and have high hopes for it's re-introduction by the people who are now apparently resurrecting Ferrania. If they can do it in 120 too, I would be incredibly happy.

I spent a few hours today adjusting my technique and getting a better feel for digitizing my medium format negatives. Since I am using a DSLR and a macro lens, things are a little different that I thought. For instance, I have to over expose when digitizing to get a darker positive image.

Anyway, here is one more from my first roll through my medium format camera. Shot with Delta 100 and developed using Xtol at 1:1.
