RE: filmscanners: Best scanner software
Thanks for the answer.
The SS4000 doesn't offer IR based ICE feature, so did you mean *always*
IR cleaning when scanning with your LS30 ?
BTW, I'm confused a bit by your claim of dust/scratches being less obvious
with higher resolution. My opinion was exactly opposite: more resolution
picks up more dust, due to
smaller pixels being used to achieve bigger resolution on similar physical
Am I wrong ?

I've made nice A3 prints on my Epson 1160 using scans at 2700dpi with a
Nikon LS30. Scans on a SS4000 look bigger, but I'm not convinced that
there's a lot more detail in them. I generally scan with Vuescan, and
*always* use Infra-red cleaning. Infra-red cleaning saves hours of
spotting. Dust and scratches are less obvious in SS4000 scans, so there's
less spotting anyway.
