  1. We are very seriously considering buying this scanner....

    The problem is that while I can't find anyone saying anything bad about it, there is just so little information on it. Has anyone used one of these before or know anything about them?
    It's a toss up between this and the last version of a Fuji Frontier scanner that was manufactured. It would be a little less scary purchasing the Fuji unit but when I look at the operation of the Polilettronica, it just seems far more intuitive and more similar to the photoshop workspace I'm used to. From the above linked to PDF, it has virtually all of the functions we need to take the image from scan to worked and finished. I don't think the Fuji Frontier has this level of manipulation but please correct me if I'm wrong. There are parts and service still available for both machines.
    Any thoughts from anyone who has used this scanner would be greatly appreciated. Alternately, anyone that is familiar with a Fuji SP 3000 scanner, I'd like to hear your experiences with that machine.
     
  2. Sorry Greg,
    I've never heard of this apparently Italian wonder and I've been in the business for 65 years, I hope it works for you, but it certainly looks pricey.
