RE: filmscanners: Nikon 8000ED

Title: RE: filmscanners: Nikon 8000ED
I took at look at the detail comparison crops (of the label) in Photoshop at 1200%. The SS120 has much smoother transitions in colors (softer?) while the Nikon 8000ED has sharper variations between pixels. I converted both to greyscale and measured the levels at various points and the SS120 seems to have slightly higher contrast. Which would explain why it appears to me that the SS120 shows slightly more grain. Noise levels in both appear to be quite low - I am green with envy (I expect the jpeg compression affected both about the same...)

The Nikon does seem marginally sharper but the Polaroid seems to have better shadow detail (lower right side of the uncropped shot).  However, it is a little tough to tell from the small .jpg.

Lawrence, I assume you'll post more conclusions when you have them.  Unfortunately, my SS120 won't be here until Monday.
