Re: filmscanners: Canon 4000 scanner VS Nikon LS4000 >Mikael
Nikon might be approaching the limits of linearity in the LEDs. They
also need to be able to have a range of brightness available to them for
the "analog exposure" they offer. Since Blue LEDs are (or at least
were) the least bright, they might be the limiting factor.
