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



Not been keeping up with RAM prices have you?

512M of RAM is $60ish.

A small 10/100 switch costs $90ish.

Ethernet cables $10 each for two.

No need for Photoshop - $35 copy of ACDSee will let you scan stuff in.

A small PC $500.

A small monitor $50.

Firewire card $100.


Well it's rather less than thousands of dollars...
