[filmscanners] RE: Flatbeds for 6x6 negs.



Hi,

I'm happy with the Umax Powerlook III. I haven't had it for long, so don't
take this as gospel. It feels like a solid machine and installation on the
SCSI chain was a breeze. It allows me to do contact sheets quickly, and scan
2 1/4, 4x5, 5x7 and 8x10. The film holders look solid, the output quality
and speed seem fine, but as I said, I just started with it, but if web
output is all you need, then you should be definitely OK. The price of about
$500 seems fair for the basic unit.

Subject: [filmscanners] Flatbeds for 6x6 negs.


Hi,

Apologies if this has been asked 1000 times before.  I am looking for a
flatbed scanner capable of scanning 6x6 negatives. It has already been
explained to me that quality will not be as good as from a dedicated film
scanner but I can only go for a flatbed (I can justify scanning images but
not film).

I have found an Epson Expression 1680 Pro and a Umax Powerlook III (does not
seem as good).

The budget is circa 1000 UKP (it can stretch but not to the price of a Umax
Powerlook 3000).  Other bits of info are that films are in strips of 3
negatives, the scanner would be connected to PC, and SCSI interface is
preferred. The output - if used at all - will be put on the web so although
the final quality may not be too high I would like to get as good an image
as
possible.

Any advice or suggestions as to what other flatbeds may be available is
welcome. Will the scanned images be any better than scanning 5x5 prints?

Regards and TIA
Charles
