[filmscanners] Re: New price on Flextight Photo in UK

When you're scanning color negs software is the determining factor in all
the parameters you mention except detail resolution.  I don't know how much
the price of the Flextight has fallen, but those using the other scanners
you mention can take heart in the fact that Vuescan exists.

It is indeed the Flextight Photo.  I used this in the dealer to scan a 35mm
and 6x6 neg on a Sprintscan 120, Minolta Dimage Scan Multi Pro and the
Flextight Photo.  At 3200 dpi and with a Dmax of 4.1 the Flextight blew the
others away with far superior scans in detail (shadow and highlight),
clarity, colour, edge to edge sharpness etc. etc.

I will be getting my one on Monday :-)
