Couple of other makers are Eseco and Heiland. I use an Eseco T85CD for E6, and a X-Rite 301 ...for film you need a transmission densitometer. The Status A filters are for E6, Status M is C41. With a color densitometer, you can use the visual (white) channel for reading b&w. I've been having some trouble lately with the eseco, think I need to send it in for a tuneup, so I'm a little hesitant to recommend it...the X-rite works great for b&w, but I'm reading control strips and figuring out density ranges on dupe negs mostly....

I don't know if any of them would be available for those price ranges, unless you just got lucky. I think we paid over $1500 for the eseco....
