Further look at slide / film scanners:
One of the big surprises in my current quest for scanners is that flatbeds have jumped up in quality to be serious alternatives in the scanner wars. They can do anywhere from 4 – 12 slides at a time and work with popular scanner control software, e.g., VueScan or SilverFast. Following are a few that caught my attention.
|Epson Perfection V750-M Pro Scanner||6400 dpi, D-max 4.0, 12 slides at a time, includes SilverFast Ai||$799.00|
|Canon CanoScan 9000F Mark II Film & Document Scanner||9600dpi, 4 slides / 12 negs at a time, no SilverFast. See David Brook’s review (w/ SilverFast). Canon page.||$180.00|
