    The Better Light people might object to this idea.

    Last I checked they've got some pretty impressive technology. They list their top end scanning back at $23k (US or Canada?), so it's not cheap. Their big niche seems to be art repro.

    Just sayin'.

    That would be 22.998 Canadian right now Bruce.
    I have always wanted a scan back much like the betterlight , we have seen some pretty nice files as compared to phase.

    Speed of capture would be a big point for me.

    I don't mind long exposures, so I would be interested in the speed of this system.

    No, just know him from when he was Anagramm since their was a relationship between Anagramm and Linhof and they sometimes exhibited in Linhof's booth at Photokina.

    Looking forward seeing this at PhotoKina ... I worked with scan backs in the past and they're a lot of fun with great quality for the right application ... It's expensive, yes but so are the 60 and 80MB backs ... different application, different file. The pixels are large and TDI is by now good mature technology ... ymmv

    Rencay took over Anagramm. When everyone was laid off the head technician took over and is continuing the company under his name.
    Betterlight on the other hand is in the process of moving to a semi retired location. After shutting down for a month during the move (October) Betterlight will reopen as a service center only and will cease to manufacture new scanning backs or pano adapters.
    The discontinued Kodak sensor is in betterlight but the digital imaging size or throat is longer in the anagramm. There are pros and cons as the sweet spot of the lens is not as sweet with the longer scan area. 72mmX120mm versus 72mmX96mm.
    I have used both for scanning landscapes art repro and for scanning negs and transparencies. Super 6K units are preferable for out door work as the Super 8K and Super 10K require more and more light which means longer line times and more motion artifacts. Then there is the panoscan MK3 made by Ted which uses the same Kodak chip and Beterlights Viewfinder software to drive the capture. Both the Rencay and Betterlight are able to capture images using different modes. When a traditional approach is used the scan moves across the film plane and covers an area slightly smaller than a 4X5 sheet. Shifts, rise and fall and tilts can all be employed. When the pano adapter is used, software moves and locks the trilinear Sensor in the centre of the scanning area and then the software drives the pano adapter to rotate the whole rig. The MK-3 panoscan only works in pano mode.
