Re: filmscanners: Nikon 8000
I'm sure Mr. Posner is "telling it as he knows it" at least
"officially", but I'd like to know what exactly Rafe and a few others
have been toying with over the last couple of months.
Perhaps they have found some really potent drugs that allow for
extremely vivid and long term hallucination?
Is Nikon shunning New Yorkers? Is some outlet in cyberspace making Nikon
8000ED knockoffs, like those "Rollox" watches? Maybe they say Nickon,
rather than Nikon on the brand plate?
