Re: filmscanners: VueScan support for UMAX USB scanners

        After looking and testing several flatbed scanners (Epson, 
Microtek, Canon), I purchased a Canon FB 1200S SCSI scanner (probably 
being phased out in favor of USB scanners.  However, the quality of 
the scans is high and the price is right ($99 with a rebate; was 
about $400-500 originally).
        I have VueScan which recognizes the Canon SCSI scanner, but 
Prescan and Scan do not work.
        Computer is Mac G3/300 minitower (beige).  It would be nice 
to have the VueScan available for this high quality scanner as well 
as film scanners.  I recently purchased VueScan, and used it for a 
few test Nikon LS-30 scans, but I am waiting for the new Nikon and 
Canon 4000 dpi film scanners.
