Subject: [Leica] Flat-bed scanner (also printer)
From: Herbert & Lee Kanner <>

Thanks to those who advised me on a printer for my wife, who has just
become a victim of a Photoshop course.  So, I bought her an Epson 890.  I
suppose the next step will be for her to buy an (ugh!) digital camera.  And
this when she has a beautiful post WWII Topcon that was hand carried by a
friend from Japan.

Now for the actual subject of this note.  I want to buy a flat bed scanner
in order to post the occasional color print on the web for you guys to
throw stones at.  I do not, repeat do not intend to feed the data to a
printer--that's what my darkroom is for.  Considering that a computer
screen has 72 pixels per inch, is there any reason under the sun to get a
scanner of higher resolution than 600 x 1200  with 48-bit color, e.g. the
Cannon 676U @ $99?
