Re: filmscanners: High End Scanner Prices

To the list:

Do the math for a 2"  2" image scanned with the Minolta MF scanner at 
360 dpi:

(3600 dpi  2)  360 = 20"  20".

At 240 dpi, you get:

(3600 dpi  2)  240 = 30"  30"

With either the Nikon or Polaroid medium-format scanners you get at 360 dpi:

(4000 dpi  2)  360 = 25"  25"

and at 240 dpi, you get:

(4000 dpi  2)  240 = 37.5"  37.5"

I would like to see a comprehensive critical user review of the Minolta 
3600/4800 dpi MF scanner. Anyone willing?
