Re: filmscanners: Slide scanner question.
You're going to get conflicting answers from different folks on this list. I
have the SS4000 and love it and I wouldn't consider the other two for my
purposes. If you think you may want to crop your images and you want to be
able to make the largest prints you can out of the resulting file, you will
want the most resolution you can get. Every thing else being equal, 4000 dpi
beats 2700 dpi for file size every time. You no doubt know that Polaroid has
filed chapter 11. You have to make your own judgement relative to that. I've
had my SS4000 for a year and a half and made hundreds of scans with great
results and no problems. For me, ICE is a non issue because with the SS4000,
I wouldn't use it if I had it. If you have scratched slides or work in a
dusty environment, you experience might be different. Oh yes, I sell fine
art nature and wild life prints so I'm a little fussy. Regards, Ron Carlson
