    1. the scanner already exists but at a big price, about $40K… there is a desperate need for a new generation of scanners up to say 4×5 at a “reasonable” price…. say fully featured at under $5K…. that is a lot but a lot less than $40K or $20K for an Imacon… most people have no idea how much detail and tone is in their film as they live in a world of crappy scans…

      1. Preach it. Though it’s quite possible to get a used Imacon for under $5000, but that’s still too expensive for me at the moment. It’s sad that prosumer scanning technology peaked and then ended like 10 years ago now. I’m hearing some interesting things coming from the homebrew section of the internet, so who knows what the future holds!

      2. I remember reading that a while back. Site must be down right now…

        As far as Epson goes, I’m not impressed by much that I’ve seen, read, or experienced. And from that I’ve read about the V850, the only major difference is the glass plate on the negative carrier, which wouldn’t do anyone shooting 4×5 a whole lot of good.
