[filmscanners] Re: Upgrade Polaroid SS35+ to 4000?

I would say it would be worth it for several reasons, but would also wonder
about what type of warranty Polaroid offers for the refurb unit.  I have a
SS4000 that I have been very happy with, along with many others on this
list.  It does seem though that $750 is rather steep for a refurb unit given
Polaroid was selling them new for $600 when they were trying to exhaust
stock.  Still, $750 is a good deal for any 4000 dpi scanner.

To answer your questions;
1. Yes, you should get more subtle/fine details revealed by the higher res
2. ICE is nice, but there are alternatives (see
http://www.grafphoto.com/dust.htm )
3. The Nikon LS4000 is rated higher on dmax - but there is plenty of
discussion on dmax if you search the list archives.

Some questions I have are:
-- Would 4000 ppi give me noticably better 12x16 prints than 2800?
-- Is ICE really as good as people say it is? (the 4000 doesn't have it and
spend a lot of time fixing spots on my images in Photoshop)
-- How about dynamic range? Are the newer scanners better than the 4000?
