suggest you ignore ALL the manufacturers specifications and base you decision
on looking at actual scans done by yourself or a reputable independent source.
could not be termed independent but I hopefully reputable. The only scanner I
have seen that may have marginally better shadow detail than the SS120 is the
Imacon but only marginally. Several others have said the same. In the 4000 DPI category
I have not seen anything better than the SS4000 particularly when you consider
it achieves it’s density in a
single pass which I also think preserves sharpness.

LS-4000ED Dmax 4,2 or rather 2,3?
So, has anyone done any comparisons
between the Polaroid SS120 and the Nikon LS8000 as far as shadow detail
goes? What about an LS4000 vs. a SS4000?
