I am new here and not sure where I should post this , so please be forgiving if I am in the wrong spot.
I have a chance at a nikon CoolScan IV
The asking price is $300 , I am sure I could get him down to about $250. I dont know what the true value of this scanner is but $300 is about my spending limit.
I looked it up on the internet and it seems to only be about 2900 dpi. Nikon's current model scanners are at 4000 dpi.
So how much difference is that ?
Are their any current drivers that will allow it to work with windows vista ?
How does this compare with some of the Epson scanners that are at 3200 x 9600 dpi ?
I see some epson that are 3200 x 9600 dpi ranging in price from $90 to $700
What is the difference?
How do you choose a great scanner?
I have no clue about scanners so any other advice or recommendations are welcome
