Re: filmscanners: CanoScan FS-2710 or other low cost film scanner
You should seriously consider the Polaroid Sprintscan 4000. They can be
found for around $700 with a $200 rebate, making the final cost around $500.
You won't find any scanner in the same price range that is close -- 4000dpi
makes a huge difference.
Try www.ecost.com That's where I bought one and many others here did too.
They're on closeout, as the model is being replace, but I bought my
'original' one for $1400 and still thought it was a great deal.
