Re: filmscanners: Digital Shortcomings

OK, but the important question is "What is a D1x?" How expensive, compared 
to a good SLR?

Film is a long way from dead (as Kodak has found out, probably to their 
great relief--or maybe not, considering how much they invested into the 
technology), but digital is catching up fast. IMHO, there's definitely room 
enough for both, but the speed of things is mind-boggling.

Best regards--LRA
