Thank you for letting me intrude a little.

What is the best scanner, say less than $1000.00 to scan 6X7 chromes and negatives? I have a canoscan fs4000 for 35 mm. I'm considering the Epson 2450 scanner and possibly the Minolta scan multi II. The dpi are very similar i believe like epson 2400x4800dpi and minoltas is 2820 dpi.

Thanks again for the help,

Jay Blackwood

There are no decent film scanners for 6x7 for under $2000. There are some flatbeds that have a transparency adaprter that will do medium format. Not a great scan -- but it's OK. I'm at the point where I take my MF negs down to the local lab and have them scanned. It's not many and they charge around a buck. If you have lots of stuff to be scanned -- I understand.

You might take a look at the multi-format FILM scanners. If you're going to keep MF film, them you might want to invest the $$$.

Best of luck.

The flat beds with the MF or transparency adapters just don't cut it. Save your money and get either the NIKON 8000 or Minolta.

Sorry,

Joel
