I don't have the Imagon specs (too expensive to buy at this stage) but was
repsonding to a statement "...I cannot reproduce the problem on the SS120."
from the message below.
If i did i would have let you know. I can only tell you the specs of
Polaroid scanners.

I assume you make this statement because you have the specs for both
machines.  If so, can you tell us what makes the SS120's pixel registration
spec better than the Imacon.

Thanks.

Simon
