I still have my SprintScan Plus, and am happy to have it on hand as a backup, as it's worth approximately zilch on eBay. Truth be known, on 35 mm, you really have to look closely to see the improvement that the LS-8000 brings, on most images -- aside from ICE, that is. What the world needs is a decent 120 film scanner with an honest 2700 dpi resolution, at, say, half the price of the LS-120 or LS-8000. I'd have bought one in a heartbeat. rafe b. - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short. Use accurate subject lines. http://www.leben.com/lists for list instructions.
