I bought a Microtek 4000 as it was significantly cheaper (at the time) than
the Polaroid and I could get it supplied with  the highly recommended

I'm having big trouble with noise in some very dark blue ripples on a Loch.
The original is Fuji Velvia. I'm a bit of a novice but maybe it's because
the Microtek uses the lower quality alternative. I've no idea as I have
never tried the Polaroid I just have difficulty in the really dark areas.

So which CCD is in the Microtek 4000. They are widely thought to be same
machine in a different box.


PS. The slide has been through photo labs at least 4 times and is a disaster
for dust and scratches too. Should have got an ICE scanner :-(
