RE: filmscanners: Kodak Q60, was greatpixin,greatpixout
A small aside, regarding a very cheap way to acquire a Q60 if you're lucky..
Some of the higher-priced flatbed scanners do (or used to) include a Q60
(reflective) target, eg Microtek.
I know this because while helping clean up an office-load of old
instruction manuals, I stumbled over an unused Q60. Brightened my day
considerably, because they didn't want it, or even know what it was for..!
So if you know anyone who looks after IT equipment, ask 'em.. Your average
business scanner user couldn't give a toss about how his/her scanner is
While initially I would have preferred to get the Q60 transparency, it's
probably more useful to me to be able to check the whole 'chain of events'..
