Re: 4990 Pro Scanner - Need Help

I've used both an Epson 4990 and a Nikon 4000ED.

If you want versatility, go for the 4990. It gives you quality scans as well with a decent Dmax.

If 35mm film and slides is all you need to scan, a Coolscan will, without doubt, perform better. The killer combo is the Nikon Coolscan + Silverfast software. Among other things, it gives you better dynamic range and 16x image hardware sampling for reducing noise/artefacts significantly in dark areas.
