RE: filmscanners: AcerScanwit

That is total time to scan FOUR images, not just one. So it is about 56
seconds extra for Digital ICE per image. If you've done any touchup with an
image editor, you'll probably agree, it is a small price to pay. Plus, when
you are talking about finger prints or film defects (yes, brand new film
that has been painstakingly processed usually has defects), Digital ICE
removes defects you might not even see to remove with an editor. Many times
images look better after Digital ICE even though you can't identify specific

Jack, thanks for following up with the data.  I'm shocked at the 6 min, 9
sec scan time with ICE at high quality.  I'm wondering how this compares
to other ICE-enabled scanners, because that scan time would be intolerable
for me at least.
