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.
