Which Polaroid is under 2000? You mean the Minolta?
In any case I will wait for more user reviews and discussions about the
Monolta, then I will decide, but I think of it as a 3200dpi scanner for MF
and 4800 only for 35mm - 3200 is fine for 6x6 or 6x7, it gives a 50" x 50"
file at 360dpi - that is already huge, don´t need 4800 - the files would be
hard to handle.
For 35mm the higher resolution is more interesting, as 35mm is a small neg
size for big prints.
If the Minolta will not have serious downsides I may go for it...
