Hi, Robert: Nope, the images from both scanners aren't that different at the edges than the center. I spent all day doing scans on both scanners with many different negatives, and the results were quite consistent. Canon was sharper. Polaroid had better shadow detail. I think all scanners should have some kind of a manual focus check where you could zero in on one little area that must be the sharpest, to see if that area is indeed in perfect focus. The very first nikon had a manual focus feature. That was many years ago, when it took 40 minutes for a high res. scan! I think the model was the L30. The sky would naturally not be as sharp as the focused on building; the negative was not curved that I could tell by looking at it. I know the polaroid got rave reviews. So as I said a few times now, I probably just got a bad scanner. It happens. > Sharp in one area and un-sharp in another. > Doesn't this sound to you as curved, non-flat negative?
