Last picture regarding Nikon LS 4000 vs Canon 4000 ppi scanner.
Canon scanner have some convergence problem in right corner compare to
Nikon LS 4000 scanner.
My conclusion regarding the 2 scanners.
Canon scanner together with Vuescan are in Sweden the 1/2 price of a Nikon
LS 4000 with NikonScan 3.1 and Silverfast .( Price in US$ Canon about 790
and Nikon LS 4000 about 1790 incl. VAT)
Canon are hopeless slow to work with compare to Nikon Ls 4000.
Nikon have manual film handling , quick and easy
The resolution and sharpness are equal between the 2 scanners if Nikon film
are mounted in a glass frame.
Canon handle un glassed film better, and have no problem with curved film ,
as Nikon have who are sharp in some areas and unsharp in others.
Canon can mybe be quicker if scussi interface are used. I don't know.
Silverfast + Canon not tested. Silverfast are fast and the best mid end
scanner software , but expensive.
Nikon LS4000 have better shadows and color nuances than Canon.
Canon have some convergence problem, shows on vertical lines out at right
side of test negative
Canons own software rely stinks and I hope they can better.
If I had the time!!!!!!! The number one choice for the money is the Canon
scanner together with Vuescan.
