[filmscanners] Re: Help with the right scanner....

I asked a question about the Minolta MultiScan II a couple of days ago (and 
never saw the answers actually since my computer went kaput a little bit 'cause 
of the Scan MultiII) but.... I've just returned it.  It simply will not work on 
my SCSI chain and doesn't seem to want to scan with the 120 holder alone.  So, 
my problem:

Although I work and love the Minolta Scan Elite for 35mm, since I have just 
started to go medium format, I need to find a scanner to work with but... i 
cannot spend over $1,000., if that.   The MultiScan II was take out of catalog 
by Minolta and offered at approx $700 at Samy's Camera in LA.

But.... I need to be able to scan medium format for at least 400 + output as I 
am starting to do some photo-illustration for the children's books I write and 
I need a scanner that can do this.  Is there any flatbed that can?  Or a medium 
format scanner I don't know about that might be at least near price range????

If it were only photos only I wouldn't care as much since a publisher would 
simply scan the film with a professional drum scanner, but for manipulated and 
changed work, some of it not photo, I have to have it right within the work.

Any suggestions as the way to go to at least start to get what I need with 120 
(645) tranparencies?

BTW, I work on a Apple powerbook G3, with SCSI and USB and I have added a 
firewire card.  I am trying to stay away from any further SCSI units however 
based upon this experience and rumors that Apple will not support it much
