The Perfection 2450 is currently listed on the Epson UK site www.epson.co.uk
and is available in the UK and France. The Epson France site (not the UK
site)has a download for the manual. My command of the French language is
poor but the diagrams show the configuration of the film/slide holder.
I have been waiting for a foothold into MF scanning and I am hoping this is
it. I have seen scans from the 1640 which look 'soft' to my eye. I am hoping
that the 'microprism' and 'micro stepper' technology has overcome this. I
wonder if the weight (spec says 5.6kg)may also help in dampening vibration.
I am struggling with my previous bad experiences at being an early adopter !

where is the info? I am using a 1640 and could use the extra resolution.
