[filmscanners] Re: Scanning old Lantern Slides

I can't specifically comment on the scanners you mention, although I
know there have been some good reviews of the Agfa 2500.

You may wish to consider some of Epson's higher end flatbeds as well.

In terms of Microtek, you should know that they make many of the
scanners sold by other companies. In fact, the Agfa 2500 is made by
them, and there is a very similar version under the Microtek name.

Heidelberg or Linotype-Hell were rebadging scanners, although often
there are some aspects of the design that they might influence, and they
may provide the up front software as ell.

Microtek also makes Polaroid's SS4000 series scanners, a well respected
product, overall.
