OK. I just got a Nikon LS30 film scanner. Yes, I know this is an older scanner but it is in mint condition because the first owner could never get it working! In any case, I have it up and running. All I can say is Wow! I knew it would be better than my old flatbed but the differences in quality are stunning. The only major problem I had was that the NikonScan software stinks. Was completely inop with the scanner. I went out on the web and grabbed a copy of VueScan which is working great. I'm so excited that I may even need to post a print or two.
