Hi, Jeff,

In respecting the TIG’s rules to not quote more than necessary… the point you reiterate had already been made by Buck.

My post reflected what MWA scanners are capable of, and was limited to that.

As a general rule, I let other scanner manufacturers speak for themselves about their products.

As I said, there’s not a one-size fits all tool… and I’m glad that there are options for scanner users to obtain results from customers film, particularly difficult content.
