RE: filmscanners: LS-4000ED Dmax 4,2 or rather 2,3?
I just read in Popular Photography about a test on 7 filmscanners. The Nikon
LS-4000ED I believe was also mentioned there as having few shadow detail.
The SS120 had great shadow detail in that test.
Since nobody else on this list mentioned this test (an american magazine,
sent to Holland--> plenty of time for americans to read it) I assume its not
such a popular magazine among filmscanner people?
