[filmscanners] Re: Polaroid Dust and Scratch Removal



Yes, lengthy can be good, and it was a friendly and honorable "curmudgeon".

In all honesty, I very much appreciate all of the detailed information you
have provided over the years.  But I think your statement below about how IR
cleaning firmware came to desktop indicates an improvement in software over
the years, but not a Nikon scanner defect.

Hey, lengthy can be good ;-)

Your comment is fair to a point, in the same way that saying a car that
gets pushed off the road by pea gravel on the roadway is not the fault
of an over-active suspension, or the car's or tire's design... after
all, the pea gravel was on the road, wasn't it? ;-)

And, as with the word "lengthy" the term "curmudgeon" is relative...
come to think of it, all my relatives! ;-)

BTW, the inside scoop on how IR cleaning firmware came to desktop
scanners, indicates that Nikon recognized they needed it to continue to
market their scanner design, especially as the resolution was improved.

Up to that point, IR cleaning systems were in use, but were used on
larger production machines only.

PS: I hope that response is both short and concise enough not to violate
any internet regulations or your attention span ;-) (A poke in the ribs,
not the eye ;-))
