Be one of the first in the United States to have this just released
photo scanner which one reviewer called "the best scanner under $2,000"
Here's from Epson's press release:
""The EPSON Perfection 4990 scanner is the ideal scanner for
demanding professionals. It has a resolution and DMax that are
comparable to many dedicated film scanners at affordable prices,"
said Philip Amato, product manager, image capture products, Epson.
"Users will find that these scanners also deliver the image quality
of a film scanner with the versatility of a flatbed scanner."
I thought this might be of interest for this discussion group.
