That's interesting to know - hopefully the wait won't be too long.

I never really got to grips with VS I much prefer Silverfast

Overall I don't think that the SS120 would really benefit from a form of
ICE however a version of ROC and especially GEM from either ASF or
Polaroid would be useful for 35mm work. Most of my work is MF but on the
occasion that I do scan 35mm the difference in quality is so noticeable
that some form of grain smoothing would be useful.

Since dICE, the scratch and dust part of the process, requires an IR
channel be used, the simple answer is it can't be used in scanners
without one. Also, ASF has indicated it is a pretty hands on process to
get everything working, as the characteristics of the firmware and
software need to be fine tuned to the scanner's IR channel.

However, don't lower your expectations on the Polaroid products by any
means, the Polaroid "elves" are busy whipping up some new tricks which
just might make the cost of dICE less attractive (both in terms of cost
of money and time) and what they have in mind will not require you to
upgrade your hardware.

ROC and GEM are all done is software, so they can be made to work with
any scanner, and in fact, as you likely know, Ed Hamrick has his own
versions of color return and grain suppression software written into
Vuescan.
