[filmscanners] Re:GRAIN/ICE SHOWDOWN: NikonLS8000vs.MinoltaScanMulti Pro!



Hi Simon,

No I'm not.  I had just purchased one the day before David Soderman posted
his grain color neg comparisons between the Minolta and Nikon.  While I feel
the Polaroid is better than the Minolta with the color neg grain problem, I
began to wonder if the Nikon was better still.  Then I realized many of my
preconceived ideas about the Nikon's drawbacks were either not true (using
ICE with Kodachrome for example), or there are workarounds.

You may not have seen my first post in this thread where I said I was
seriously considering the switch before the return period on the SS120 ran
out.  The Polaroid SS120 is a great scanner, but to be perfectly honest and
FWIW, after having my hands on both, I feel the Nikon is considerably
better.

Cheers,

Dave

Are you no longer using the SS 120?
