Re: filmscanners: Dust removal software?


I agree as I am certain that a significant part of my dust problem,
certainly not all, is within the scanner.  The problem was even worse at
first, until, on the recommendation of Nikon tech support, I blew it out
with a pressure can.  I intend to do tests to try and determine if there are
spots that remain the same on several slides.  I'd appreciate if you'd tell
me what scanner has a "positive pressure film chamber."  Also, how does the
chamber help?
