    Re: Used pro flatbeds - who are they ?

    Matus,

    oXYgen works on Intel Macs. AFAIK neither the Pro or Pro II will work on an Intel machine without the 5K upgrade. As the sit the are firmware limited i terms of both hardware and software.

    Re: Used pro flatbeds - who are they ?

    Yes, oXYgen runs on Intel Macs.

    As for prices on the IQ2 and IQ3. The 2 is ~ 10K and the 3 is ~ 19K. Both these prices reflect a rebate (2K on the 2 and 2.5K on the 3). This rebate is available...

    Re: Fujifilm

    Agree with Gene. The emulsions Fuji offers are great, I find I am preferring them to the comparable Polaroid product. BTW, I am finding that FB100B works better at ISO 160 than at the suggested 100.

    Re: best flatbed scanner under $400

    If you can find a refurb of the 4990 or the 700 in the Epson store that is the way to go; otherwise, the Microtek i800 is the only choice in new machines and it isn't going to get you to 16x20.
