Many companies are outsourcing there tech support to companies that handle many products. It is cheaper than hiring your own people, and staffing is such that you may get faster service that way. The problem is many people who work there have no direct experience with the product at all, and just rely on the manufacturer's manuals and keys to step clients through. I don't know if Nikon has outspourced or not, so this is a generic comment. (sort of like the quality of some tech support these days ;-)) Art rich turk wrote: > I'm not sure if this is funny or pathetic.......I had a problem w/my > Nikon IV Nikon Scan 3.1 software....all my neg scans were getting blown > out.
