I decided to jump from Epson v700 up to virtual drum.. I don't consider 949/X5 because I need to scan 5x7!
I hesitate between Hasselblad X1 and Imacon 848. I have found the both (apprx. equal prices) but as some people write - X1 is 646 (not 848) and 646 gives more noises in shadows! In generally I take studio portraits and need clear darks and shadows. I don't have reliable information regarding X1 vs 848 (in shadows!).
I will be appreciated for any useful information!
