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



Space and money prevent this strategy for me, although I will grant that it
works.  But just paying for and finding a place for a new scanner would be a
stretch (already $1700), so spending additional thousands and additional square
metres for a parallel system is not economically feasible at this time.  I just
wish I could plug the new scanner into the place of the old scanner, which would
be possible if Nikon had had the foresight to maintain compatibility.
