A comment and a question-
1. I keep hearing that the dust and scratch removal software/hardware
which apparently uses IR to find out something about the image, doesn't
work. Does it actually work? Saying it differently, I did hear from
several sources that the CanoScan 1250, which has this feature, doesn't do
2. The question is: I have a CanoScan D 1230U which is the best I
could afford last buying cycle. I'll probably keep it for a while since it
does handle not only flat stock but negatives and transparencies up to
4X5. The various film/transparency holders which come with it put the film
at up to 1/4 inch above the platen.
I think I have seen scans of flat material go out of focus at that distance
(a curve in an opened book, for example).
Finally the question- Just how does the scanner handle transparent material
so far from what I thought was some critical focal plane?
If anyone wants to reply off-list that would be fine. I can discuss the
subject but have no information on current photo diode arrays.
