Hi Dan:

I was given to understand that because it'll give 4000 DPI for 6x6, that
it would do better for 35mm, but maybe I assumed too much.

Austin's Leafscan will give 5080 for 35mm and he has graciously offered
to scan some of my 6x6 chromes which it will scan at 2540... and which
is so much better than even Photo CD Pro which gives only 1400 DPI for
6x6, fine for the web but only decent 9x9 prints on an Epson.

Here is some info on the Nikon 8000 nikon_coolscan_8000_film_scanner.html?E+scstore

Sorry about the url wrap.
