A few more items that may interest you, then... 1) Nikon's latest high-end digital SLR, the D1 is due out this fall, at around $5800 US. Has a good-sized CCD imager, and 2.7 million pixels, takes standard Nikon lenses, with a 1.5 focal- length multiplier. 2.) Sinar-Bron's "Leaf Volare" back has a 6 Mpixel CCD imager, 24x36 mm, for $27K. Ouch. This back fits "most popular" medium-format cameras. 3.) Polaroid's SprintScan 45 has a 2000x4000 pixel resolution, it seems (check out their web site.) That ought to do a respectable job, at least. I used 1950 dpi for quite a while on 35 mm film, and that yields a very respectable 8x10" print. I wasn't able to find out the price, though. rafe b. -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Please: Stay on topic. Trim quoted messages. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
