    film and Slides.

    Raul, if you do a Google advanced groups search on this newsgroup
    searching for "4000US", you'll find lots of comments.

    I have this scanner: it is a very high quality machine but relatively slow,
    regardles of whether you use the USB or SCSI connector. It is already a few
    years old and the new Minolta 5400 may be a better machine at a similar
    price. Comments about noise and other issues are imaginary. Also comments
    about the Canon software are half-baked: in my experience it has worked as
    well or better than Vuescan with this machine, and I have made thousands of
    negative and transparency scans with this unit. I do not believe the $200
    Silverfast is asking for their software is justified either. If you are
    offered a used 4000 with all accessories at a good price it would be a great
    bargain.

  5. I do not believe the $200
    SILVERFAST SE is available for only 49$ online and has all major
    functions of SilverFast Ai. If you still want more, you can always
    upgrade to full SilverFast Ai for the price difference only, so your
    money is not lost.

    Just try the powerful auto-adjust and NegaFix negative film conversion
    function with support for over 140 different film types. Try the
    fully functional demo and see for yourself.

    The new version of SilverFast has very powerful instructional
    Quicktime movies bulit into the software, so it becomes very easy to
    figure out how everything works.
