[filmscanners] RE: Epson Perfection 3200 vs dedicated


I got my Epson 2450 for $260 US (after rebate). The "Pro" model of the
3200 is $600 new, with the cheaper version (identical scanner) at $400.
It is NOT going to beat a $5000 Imacon; if it did, the latter company
would be out of business in a week. It IS, however, amazing for the
price. For less than the cost of a used MF lens, you get a scanner that
can be used to produce VERY high-quality prints up to (say) 12x15 which
you can feel proud to display and sell. My $1600 Nikon LS-2000 does a
better job on 35mm than the 2450-- perhaps the 3200 would be closer--
but my MF and LF negs scan gorgeously on the Epson.

I didn't see any comparisons with a 4000dpi scanner in the review. I was
suprised at the improvement over the Nikon at 2700dpi although that must
be an older model coolscan as the coolscan IV scans at 2900dpi. I
suspect the coolscan IV is significantly better than earlier models. The
3200 didn't come close to matching the Flextight IMO in detail.

The review didn't really have any real world tests to see what the
density range is that the scanner can capture. That seems to me a
significant omission.

Overall a positive review but the comparisons to film scanners left a
lot to be desired.
