The problems are mostly related to the front-ends, as there is no
really convenient way of removing the orange mask (for negatives) and
IR-based dust removal.

I use an LS-30, all hardware functions are supported. I have also had
positive confirmation from users of LS-40, LS-4000, and LS-8000,
though the latter is a bit problematic because of the large variety of
film holders.

Most Nikons are certainly supported, and so are a few Canons I'm told.
