The specs seem close for a 600 buck scanner against a 1200 buck scanner but
the 5000 is about twice as fast.
More importantly for me it will scan a roll of uncut film at a time with an
adaptor which is not cheap at 500 bucks but for me on the long run, worth
... As it turns my M's into digital cameras. Or any other 35mm film camera I
might come upon.
I can have my c 41 run down the street in 20 minutes uncut for a couple of
bucks each. As far as I go that?s darn close to "instant".
