Here's the biggest reason why I like Sensia100 or Astia100: its latitude. When scanned, you can adjust curves to find details from highlights that seem quite blown out, and shadows are good as well. And, projecting the slides in a dark room will reveal this shadow detail even without any painful digital processing .
