  1. Re: Any Experience With An Imacon Flextight Precision II Scanner

    It's a good scanner. I don't know if it's impressive, but it's certainly better than the epson flatbeds. It isn't terribly quick though, you're looking at 15-20 min/scan and you have to run it on...

    it's not helping you to scan at that size, it's just interpolating the data. Scan at a smaller size and do the interpolation yourself in photoshop. Your optical resolution is going to be somewhere...

    Re: JOBO 3005 + 4x5 sheets?

    totally possible--I use 350ml for 5 sheets of 4x5, and have good results. My guess is it's best to err on the side of extra chemistry since the drum is a little too large for 4x5.
