[filmscanners] RE: Scanner for contact sheets



I don't know whether Silverfast can separate 36 frames in a single scan
on the Powerlook III, because I don't own it. I agree with you that it's
overpriced, as are all versions of Silverfast. The company is a bunch of
thieves. The Powerlook III can batch scan up to 12 separate frames using
its film holders and the Umax Magicscan driver (or, I imagine,
Viewscan).

I think it's actually a function of the Silverfast software that comes
with the scanner.

not sure if you can get that for the smaller epsons (and it costs much
more than it's worth).
