I don't believe either is "less accurate" at all, it's the complications of
the two differing mechanisms that is at issue, both should be equally as
"accurate". I believe moving the film is going to be far less complicated.
Also, if the CCD/light source moved, you would either have to position the
film in the right position for scanning, or the film would have to be moved
into position anyway.
