I have a line on a used Screen DS 7060p. One owner, with Mac, all accessories etc.... ready to go. I think I can get in in the range of $500 of so.
it is a MONSTER! I have room for it...maybe. Is this worth fooling with? I have little need right now of drum scanning for myself and what little I do I can get done at reasonable prices. I like the idea of making some money on doing ultra large format scans but I dont think there is much market for that; or at least not enough to justify dealing with this beast.
eventually I will be doing more drum scanning and I hope to get a 820 camera at some point but all of that is down the road a bit.
Buy it and flip it? Buy it and use it? Ignore it?
