[filmscanners] Re: [filmscanners_Digest] filmscanners Digest forFri 4 Apr, 2003

Hi Barry,

I would suggest that full quoting is not often required, and can
sometimes prove excessive.  I usually suggest people quote enough of the
original that the reader knows the references.

According to Canon the scanner uses: Cold cathode mercury fluorescent lamp

This would tend to be a diffused light source, but as I posted earlier,
Minolta also used such a lighting source but somehow manages to make it
overly directional, perhaps through the use of some condenser lenses???

I do not recall the FS4000 being saddled with a reputation for excessive
  grain or scratches when FARE is not used.  It's main problems are with
the speed it scans and shadow noise.
