I've only "met" Phil via the internet, however, we've "bumped" into one another for years now. Phil has been working with and selling high end professional scanners (both drum and top end CCD) and working with their software development for many years now. He was one of, if not the first person I corresponded with regarding my concerns about scanner quality versus manufacturer's specifications when I first started using consumer or prosumer grade scanners. He was always candid and helpful, and he was the first person I knew of to take these concerns to both the manufacturers and to the professional scanning public by offering seminars at professional trade shows and meetings, and he has been working on devising and developing objective methods and tools in order to evaluate scanners of many models and makes. I am very much looking forward to the unveiling of his website, as I am sure it will reveal a great deal of useful information and provide a resource that will be helpful to anyone looking into the purchase of a scanner. Knowing Phil's long term commitment to inform buyers of what they can expect to be purchasing, I'm sure we will all benefit from his efforts. Art - Turn off HTML mail features.
