    Any thought's on Pacific Image Film Scanners - Like the PF3650U has anyone
    used it yet? The review of an earlier 1800u using Cold cathode fluorescent
    lamp design having Lamp Failure is worrisome however, this new PF3650U has
    an White & Infrared LED Array For the record I sure better film scanners
    maybe had like Nikon or Minolta but I don't have that kind of money and this
    is my hobby not my career and right now I am using a Microtek's ScanMaker
    5900 flatbed scanner on slides it works OK but negatives bow up and will not
    lay flat or will move when I put the lid down. any thoughts on this would be
    appreciated

    If Nikon Coolscan's are out of reach get yourself a Minolta Dual Scan IV
    or even III. Better than any flatbed, cheaper than all dedicated film
    scanner worth considering.

    I have a PI 3600 and do not like it. Negative scans have problems with
    shadows (looks like bit noise) and the lack of ICE is a fatal flaw. In
    addition, the thing is slow and film transport not 100% reliable.
