RE: filmscanners: SS120
I am going to guess two things are happening here.
1. Argon purchased a Demo unit at a reduced price which is what I bet they
2. Jessops for whatever reason does not stock the SS120 and would prefer you
buy another brand they have in stock so they have a deliberately inflated
price on the SS120.

well I have it form a very reputable source that Polaroid's price to
retailers in the UK is £1722.
This indicates that anybody selling it on at 1499 is either (a) insane, or
(b) getting their supplies somewhere else.
