The Nikon Super CoolScan 8000 ED offers 4000 dpi optical resolution and is making Imacon nervous as well. Polaroid's SprintScan 45i is also clearly in the bulldozer path of Nikon.

Nikon's first attempt to make a multi-format 4x5 scanner was a dud. But now new Nikon 4x5 multi-format scanners sort of eliminate Polaroid and Microtek from the home and hobby market.

Its tough to judge from specs, since specs are manipulated. You never know the true story of what it takes to get the dpi or the Dmax numbers. Thus it will take our staff a while to evaluate the new equipment, and more importantly, to evaluate the advertising claims.
