Extra resolution is not a magic way to get better scans.  I replaced a
Powerlook III with an Epson 1640SU (higher resolution) and immediately
regretted the decision (although it caused me to get a real film scanner, a
better situation in the end) due to lower sharpness and less shadow detail.

I didn't like the film holders of either unit, but it was easy to make my own.
