[filmscanners] RE: Flatbeds for 6x6 negs.



I read that review (after my purchase fortunately), and could not
disagree more. I just recently purchased a used Powerlook III from Ebay.
One of the prime reasons was I wanted a full-page tranny adapter to do
contact sheets of negatives. I've done about 15 so far and have had no
problems scanning color negs. The scans are quite good. I will say that
I usually get better results with Magicscan on manual rather than using
the Binuscan option, at least with contacts. I usually use the black
eyedropper on clear film base to set exposure. Perhaps Binuscan is
fooled with all the "black" in a typical contact sheet. I also have
Vuescan, but haven't tried it with this scanner yet. Based on my
experience, I would have no problem recommending the Umax for color
negs.

I haven't been up close and personal to high-end Epson scanners, but my
previous one was a perfection 1200S. The Umax is much more solidly
built. It's an impressive machine.

Giving that I shoot negatives, for various reasons, this quote from the
review in the link below is enough to keep me away from the Umax:

"The only real failure was in scanning color negatives".

I also remember some review where the 2450 was judged better than the
Umax, but can't find right now in my links...
