While scanning the web for recent reviews and prices for the Canon FS4000US Film Scanner I chanced on a review by Peter Kun Frary on his website. Included in the review were some photos of Hawaii. A little more exploration on his site lead me to his Photography Index page where there are links to more reviews, and his online galleries.
My favourites? Hard to pick – there are so many amazing photos. Here’s a selection though, in no particular order:
My olnly negative comment about the site is that there are no links between photos so you have to keep closing the pop-up window with the larger image in it, and selecting the next from the thumbnails. I’d prefer to see them in a slideshow format since they are all great photos!
In the end, I ordered the scanner from Adorama as they seem to have a very competitive price and, more importantly, good reviews and ratings both from mentions in FS4000US reviews and also on BizRate. All of the places with lower prices had comments associated with them regarding bait & switch tactics and other dubious, if not illegal, sales techniques. In my opinion, if a place has collected a number of reviews like that they are not worth the risk.
