Hi Chris

I have had the 4990 Photo (certainly a bit more expensive than the 4180 and
probably overkill for what I do, but same family) for a few weeks -- so far
have only scanned a very few 35mm negs with it (and only at 2400dpi).

The results haven't been very far behind my Polaroid 4000, so I'd expect
the larger formats to be pretty good.

Do expect long scan times if you use the higher resolutions, though.

For quite a few assorted sample pics from the 4180 and other flatbed
scanners, look here:
