Yes definitely! I would not consider getting a scanner for any other
OS (that's not a religious statement, it's just I do %99 of my work
is done on Macs so those are the only computers I keep up to date).
Actually, I just finished a month of research on the internet and was
about to buy the SS4000 when Polaroid's financial troubles were
announced. I liked that, according to the reviews and comments the
SS4000 seems to have more shadow detail and that it seems to bring
out less grain, etc. than the Nikon LS4000 ED. The 120 model seems
to do even better (even though I only shoot 35mm) but was more than I
Ultimately, however, I chose to go with the Nikon LS4000 ED; mostly
because of worries about whether I'd be able to get service for the
Polaroid, and a little bit because I though ICE and ROC (but not GEM)
might be useful for my really old slides.
FYI, so far I like NikonScan 3.1 rather well. I wish more scanner
software was as good. I also wish it was even better...
Anyway, I really appreciate the quality of your presence here. It's
tough to be on the firing line with end users and I think you've done
a great job of being appropriate and sane.
