Re: filmscanners: Ls-4000ED vs. FS-4000 - can you help?
Having owned both lower resolution scanners (2700,2880) and higher
resolution scanners (4000), I can stongly say there is a VERY large
difference. If all you want is to be able to print 8x10 or less, then
2900dpi is fine. I regularly print up to 13x19 on my Epson 1270 and that
really requires 4000dpi.
Even with 35mm there is a very visibile difference in quality. 35mm is
'better' than 4000dpi.

I don´t know what you plan to do with the scans, but being given that a big
limitation is the film format (35mm) itself, maybe the 4000dpi resolution is
not really worth the big money and you would be relatively better off with a
2900dpi Coolscan IV. In any case I don´t think that in 2 years the actual
scanner models will have more than 60% of their value.
Much luck, Bernhard
