    Yesterdays scanner still good for today. 2700 dpi will scan at 12 bit
    and output at 12 bit has digital ice - good dmax (much better scanner
    than the LS30)

    There worth - when new $1750 S/H $500 max

    Check for jaggies at the edge of high contrast. Make sure the mirror is
    kept clean. They had problems with the stepper motor in the early stages.

    They still support it with software (XP).

  5. I agree it's a better scanner than the LS-30, but I'm not sure how MUCH
    better. The differences: LS-2000 is a 12 bit (instead of 10), LS-2000
    does
    single-pass multi-scanning, LS-2000 can be equipped with batch feeder
    for slides. The optics and mechanicals are the same in both scanners,
    which makes the LS-30 excellent for scanning colour negatives, and
    mostly
    fine for slides. The LS-2000 sold new for about twice the price of the
    LS-30.
    New price was about 3,000 Australian Dollars, and second hand price
    probably around 1,000 Australian Dollars. Perhaps you are thinking of
    some other currency?
    All good points, Wiz.

    LS 30 also only output at 8 bits whereas the LS2000 12 in and out which
    made fine scanning detail in black better.

    LS-2000
    Indifferent reports as to the value and reliability of the batch feeder
    for the LS2000.


    The optics and mechanicals are the same in both scanners,
    No not twice.

    Mine was 1750 tax ex = $2275 inc. L&P when bought.

    They are not selling for that S/H I think there has been one here
    recently much lower than that. Now there are too many other new
    scanners in the market to demand $1000 for a S/H LS2000.
