@marco_b You are right. The spot size is probably 0.12 or slightly larger so 0.08 is over scanning but it is close to 300dpi (318dpi to be precise). The majority of burn happens in the center 75% of the spot so this isn't as bad as it seems and if you want small images at very high quality it's totally acceptable.
