[filmscanners] Re: FINALLY, why Nikon LS-8000 bands

I'd like to add here that, apparently, the LS-4000 ED has the same
problem, since it also uses a 3-line sensor. I'm not sure how large
the effect is in that case.

Really? As far as I can tell, none of the previous scanners had more
than one CCD line (LS-2000 certainly didn't), and all Nikon Coolscans
had a LED light source, so where did the banding come from?

Actually, "endlich" means "at last", and there is no such word in
German as "entlich". And I'm not a military official either.
