[filmscanners] Re: Cleaning LS2000 optic?

When you use the term "flare" do you mean that light areas near dark
ones tend to be washed out around the edges, almost like a soft focus
halo around the very brightest areas?

If so, you've brought up an issue that has been discussed before in this
group and the other scanner group without resolution.

Since i never got a straight answer for the other people who discussed
this (and I don't own an LS2000), I was wondering if this problem is
relatively new, if it manifested over time, or if it was there since new?

I have a suspicion, like you, that it is due to dirt or oils that got
deposited on some of the optics causing this blooming, but others are
suggesting it is an inherent CCD design issue.

I can't answer how involved a cleaning is, but I would be interested if
you can tell me if this problem is one which has developed over time.
