It would ruin the look of my Mac ;-) Simon ----- Original Message ----- From: "dickbo" <email@example.com> To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Friday, April 26, 2002 8:13 AM Subject: Re: nikon 8000 or polaroid 120 > I observe that at $10,000 the Imacon is something more than a hobby device. > > At that price I wouold suggest that a second hand drum scanner would be a > better buy. > > > ----- Original Message ----- > From: <email@example.com> > To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> > Sent: Thursday, April 25, 2002 1:13 PM > Subject: Re: nikon 8000 or polaroid 120 > > > > On 24 Apr 2002 at 22:08, Stephen Greenfield wrote: > > > > > Sent: Wednesday, April 24, 2002 4:25 AM > > > > To: email@example.com > > > > Subject: nikon 8000 or polaroid 120 > > > > > > > > > > > > I am in need of purchasing a scanner for 120 film. which is best ? > > > > thanks > > > > John > > > > > > John, > > > > > > I would seriously look at the Imacon Photo before either the Nikon or > > > Polaroid models.
