Re: filmscanners: OT but interesting - Interview with Jay Maisel



Thank you Mike.

I couldn't have said it better.

In all the years that I've been involved in photography, I've never read 
anything that would indicate that he would settle for anything less than 
the what he considered to be the best. As you've been able to read in the 
interview, he's not the most computer oriented person. There was nothing in 
the conversation to indicate that any of the companies whose products he 
uses (outside of Nikon) sponsor him. Most of the time, he had to be 
reminded of the manufacturers names for the hardware he uses. If you think 
that Epson is sponsoring him, ask yourself why he isn't using the 2000P at 
this point.
