re: filmscanners: Fast, decent, low res scans


If you go this route, buying a second or third film holder would speed things 
up for you also.

Using MiraPhoto you will have to save each file individually in the twain 
running program, e.g. photoshop.  If you used VueScan the files would already 
by written to disk sequentially numbered.  VueScan also was an excellent 
autolevels.  I use it almost exclusively on my Scanwit 2720.

There will also be the time for the scanner to focus, although 675 dpi may make 
this a moot point.
