I don’t understand. Why would anyone pay $2000 for a film scanner in 2014????
This has been out for some time. Perhaps this is the official US release from them but it’s been available to buy here in the EU for over 6 months at least.
And as to why would someone pay this much for a film scanner – it’s cheaper than a used Nikon 8000/9000 and will at least be supported for repairs/parts unlike the Nikon or Minoltas. Plus it’s faster and better quality than the flatbed options out.
