Re: filmscanners: Canon 4000 scanner VS Nikon LS4000



OK Mikael, let me ask a follow-up question. I am a beginner so your
knowledge clearly surpasses mine. I've been reading your comments (as well
as others) on this issue for months now. My question is the following: are
you able to reclaim proper sharpness through the judicious use of sharpening
techniques in Photoshop. I ask because I purchased a Nikon 4000 scanner a
number of months ago and I am able to get much better results from the
resultant images out of Photoshop than I was ever able to get through the
use of professional photofinisher.

thanks,

Brian
