Re: filmscanners: Too picky?
As an owner (yes I'm a cheap s-o-b) of two of the cheapest scanners on the
market, the Olympus ES10 and the Acer 2720, I can report neither has/had a
single dead or lazy pixel. Nor have any of the CCD's or LCD displays on
video cameras I have owned (4 to date), and if any of the above did hav'em
they would be taken straight back to the dealer. If there was a hassle
with that, I'd be off to our Consumer Affairs bureau.
I do have a low-end Canon flatbed with a slight 'stripe', but I haven't yet
pulled it to bits to see if it is just something stuck on the calibration
area. If it is a dead'un, back it goes.
I'm happy to clone dust away, but I draw the line at lines... So if you
are over fussy, you are nevertheless not alone :)
