Re: filmscanners: new member
Very few people have been successful with this unit. Unfortunately, it
is a poor product, at a low price for a film scanner. It lacks dynamic
range (ability to scan a wide contrast range) has very poor shadow
response, and the resolution is also not very good.
Most people tend to return it or upgrade it. I don't know what it
currently sells for, but the Acer 2720 is a far superior model for
probably about the same cost.
Beyond that, look into the Polaroid 35+, or the Minolta Dimage Dual both
no longer made but often sold used for the same price range.
If you have a larger budget, consider the Minolta Dual Dimage II or the
Canon FS 2710. The Tamarack 2400 or Jenoptik JS-21 (I believe the same
model) unfortunately reach their limitations quite quickly.
