I need a filmscanner pronto. Choices are the new Nikon 9000D (which I have to wait a couple of weeks for) or the Minolta multi-format scanner. By the numbers they sure seem similar. One unusual bit is that for a few months I'm going to need to use it with my Powerbook, which I don't know will make any difference (laptop LCD notwithstanding, I might be able to wrangle a monitor sometimes).
Anybody have any experience with the Minolta's? I have limited experience with the last generation of Nikons, and here I am stuck making a decision about equipment I have little or no personal experience with.
Any experience or insight would be helpful.
