[filmscanners] What can you advise?

Hello filmscanners

I am a new list member. Apart from a real interest in scanning (I've
notched up 50 years experience as a photographer and 40 as a graphic
designer) I've joined you in the hope of obtaining guidance in making
a film scanner purchase decision.

At work I generally use hi-res scans from drum scanners so am
undoubtedly fussy. As I near retirement (well, give up the day job)
my hope is to develop my interest in photography and, using Photoshop
etc., combine this with my ability as a painter to produce prints (I
started at Art School as a painter but couldn't see my parents being
able to support me so moved over to a graphic design course. I'll
never know if that was a wise decision - but most friends who
persevered as painters are now international names and wealthy!).

Anyway, as I look through the pages of Macworld, and read the
filmscanners list, I see reviews and mention of a variety of film
scanners (and related problems). So far, to me, no model stands head
and shoulders above the rest.

My spec includes: 35mm, 4000-ppi, Firewire and value for money. You
may know better.

What can you advise?
