Re: filmscanners: Nikon LS-30 Coolscan III makes scratches on negatives

That's incredible.  I thought only HP was asleep at the switch
on this, with their HP Photosmart and S-20, both of which will destroy 
your sixth frame if you use a full 6 frame film strip.  HP finally made 
the software limit intake to 4 or 5 neg strips to "resolve" the problem.
