    He doesn't mention what scanner it is..... The numbers would suggest a consumer flatbed, not a pro scanner, but I don't really know....

    Not bloody likely. I would not imagine that the scanner could do 4200 resolution.... and the images prove it... It's a CCD, an extra lens - there's such a thing as Physics... It's not a bad scanner, but I wouldn't consider those results excellent...

    I didn't read the article too thoroughly, but if its meant to be some kind of bar, where you make a statement about what is possible, and what isn't, it ought to be done on a drum...

    Just my 2 cents....
