Re: filmscanners: Canon FS4000 vs. Nikon LS4000

Don't forget the LS40: half the price of the LS4000 with nearly the same
performance (Pop Photography says resolution is 53.5 and 60 lp/mm for the
LS40 and LS4000, respectively.)  With Vuescan, you can do multiscan noise

For slides, low noise is important.
