Re: filmscanners: Best film scanner, period!!!


Of course Imacon is the benchmark of film scanners but I hardly think that
most photographers could consider one.  They start at $10,000 with specs
that are not as good as the Nikon 8000 and go up to the $15,000 model which
is the benchmark.  Although money was not necessarily the issue when I
purchased my Nikon 8000 I could not see the images from the Imacon as five
times better.  I owned the Minolta Dimage Multi for about two years and was
pleased with the results.  My Nikon 8000 produces much higher quality scans
and it was a grand more than the Minolta.  Perhaps one of these days I will
find an Imacon at a "fire sale" but I certainly won't hold my breath.  There
must be a serious learning curve with the Imacon.  I have a friend that has
one and his results are sporadic.  One scan is stunning and the next several
are not so stunning.
