    Hi,

    Last month I sent an email to Minolta to enquire on the Dimage Scan Dual III. They replied that they still do not know when it'll be launched in S'pore.


    BTW,FYI Cathay Photo is selling the Nikon Coolscan IV (LS-40) at S$1,099 inclusive of 3% GST

    best bet is probably

    the canon 2710 err I think
    or the Epson 2450

    both capable of very good quality scans, the canon even comes with FARE.

    bedpan are you the large sized guy that once flipped through my little india book at TCW ???

    and you have a young child......

    Also suggest you look up George Leep's site - I recalled he tested the Cannon vs the Nikon and reluctantly went with the Nikon scanner. FYI he is a Cannon adoocate. His techincal man was quoted in an article as saying the Cannon is fine provided you do not have any thing else but the Nikon is better. Epson and other flat bed based scanners are a compromise for 35mm work unless your is medium format than it acceptable. For large format it could be good.

    coz u never look around, cathay got all models/brands(be it Nikon, canon or minolta) displayed on their shelves, except the Duel III.
