RE: filmscanners: High End Scanner Prices

There is a very positive reviewe in the current issue of Practical
Photography (UK). However, it is on the short side, and either decided not
to mention any interploation issues, or doesn't understad them.

However, PP is a very reliable magazine and its reviews are very much based
on photographic criteria.

The summary puts it ahead of the 8000ED and the SS120, but it *seems* that
this is on the basis of price and the claimed 4800dpi.  However, they quote
prices for the Nikon and Ploaroid at over GPB3000, whereas the Polaroid
retails for under 2000....  

Seems like a good candidate, it has ICE3.  Makes decisions even harder :-)
