    Hi..

    Wonder if anyone here has personal experience with
    the Minolta QuickScan + scanner?

    And if so, if they'd mind sharing their
    thoughts?

    I have a few trays of slides I'd like to
    copy... not professionally, but perhaps a
    little better than a flatbed does.

    Thanks, and take care.

    Ken

    No, but a quick look at the spec makes it look decent for resolution
    (2820 dpi) and not so great for dynamic range. It appears to be
    10bits/color channel. This corresponds to a Dmax of 3.
    To get full detail out of a color slide, 12 to 14 bits/color channel is
    usually required.

    OTOH, it will likely do better than a flatbed.

    It does not have ICE, so scratches and dust will have to be manually
    corrected in PS (or whatever.

    I've got one of these, and it does a good job--however, no fancy dust
    & scratch removal and 30 bit color. It also requires a SCSI
    interface. It's a good little scanner than can usually be found for
    about $100 on the used market, maybe even less. It's certainly more
    convenient than using a flatbed scanner, and the results appear
    comparable to my HP 7400C (2400 DPI) in that respect.
