[filmscanners] Re: Polaroid 120 opinions



I  have a Polaroid 120 with Silverfast AI 6.0--a good combo.  One
downside--the Polaroid 120 does not have Digital ICE in contrast to
comparable Nikon film scanners.  It has a relatively diffuse light source
which helps prevent highlight "blowout".  This is more difficult to control
with LED sources, especially when scanning silver based B&W film.  If I
remember correctly I downloaded a firmware update from the Polaroid site to
correct the lockup problem mentioned-so if you have or acquire one be sure
and make this update. In general I'm quite pleased with the output. Flawless
performance over the past several years.

Alex,

I have had a SprintScan 120 for a little over three years and am pleased
with its performance.  I have the glass 120 carrier, which I recommend.

The unit locked up and had to go back to Polaroid shortly after I
purchased it.  I have had no problems since - knock wood!

I purchased this unit because of the positive comments on this list and,
at the time, there was a Polaroid rep  commenting on this list.  I can't
remember his name but I was very impressed with his comments and
conduct.  Perhaps Art has had contact with him - if so, I'd like to know
how he's doing.  Art?
