false. putting a fw400 device on a fw800 bus does *not* slow it down,
assuming the fw400 devices are after the fw800 devices.
however, any fw800 devices after a fw400 device will be at fw400 speeds.

I think it's because the scanner market is stuck in a 2001 time warp. For
some reason, all the effort has gone into digital camera's and the film
scanner market has pretty much stood still.
If you think that's expensive, look at the prices of some of the imacon
scanners. But, despite the price, when I was looking around they were still
pretty slow for doing a big batches of negs. In fact, I was unable to find
a fast way of scanning large quantities of negs at high resolution with ICE.
