Re: filmscanners: Light Source (Nikon LS40 vs. Minolta Scan Elite II)


as initiator of this thread I want to thank you for your
in-depth information. Although previously almost about to
order the Nikon LS-40, I am now a little uncertain especially
about the reported problems with depth of field. I guess I
will wait until the Minolta Dimage Scan Elite II becomes 
available in the store and try to get a sample scan of the
two scanners in question.

Thanks to all contributors for their information,
