[filmscanners] Re: Purchase reccomendations

The biggest problem with the Nikon 4000ED is the non-diffused LED
lighting will emphasize grain, dust dirt and scratches.  This is in fact
why Nikon had dICE incorporated into their scanners, and it does a darn
good job of correcting those defects, except, it does not work on true
black and white film.

It is fine for chromogenic black and white (C-41 process) but it will be
problematical for true B&W, causing a lot of spotting work. Further
still, the IV, being 2900 dpi is more apt to produce grain aliasing.
