Re: filmscanners: Dust in Sprintscan 4000?


I have started to be pleased with the Sprintscan, especially considering the
$1,200 difference saved.  Unlike the Nikon, which has great software,
mastering PolaColor, Silverfast, and Vuescan, all having terrible
documentation, takes a good bit of time.  I am now getting very good scans
with better color than I got with the Nikon, albeit spending at least one
half an hour per scan to remove the spots.
