Imacon Flextight 848 compared to the Minolta Dimage Scan Multi Pro
with Scanhancer 5LE

imacon vs minolta 1

(Kodak Portra 160NC negative film, medium format, no descreening, no sharpening applied in both cases)

Can anyone tell us why there is a price difference of 13,000.- ($ 16,500.-!) between the Imacon Flextight 848 and the Minolta Dimage Scan Multi Pro*? It seems the gap is closed with a Scanhancer 5LE... Click on the picture to see if you can believe your own eyes.

*Well, let's be fair: mechanically and speedwise the Imacon is in a different league of course. But when you lack the funds for such a machine the final results don't differ that much.
