Re: filmscanners: LS-4000ED Dmax 4,2 or rather 2,3?
There is no question about it, home filmscanning technology is constantly, I
will say developing but not immature. Too many bad connotations to use a
word like that.
As far as the comparison with a flatbed scanner, film has much more dynamic
range than does a print - it does not surprise me at all that the flatbed
you mention will pick up everything in the print - there is less to pick up.
