Film/Slide Scanner Recs?
« on: February 22, 2017, 10:47:58 AM »
I have thousands of family 35mm slides I'd like to digitize...

Anyone have any experience with these?

Anything to stay away from?

Looks like the good ones are over 2 grand...

More interested in the sub 500 dollar range...

I use an Epson flatbed for medium format and Nikon Coolscan V for slides and negative strips.  I read somewhere Nikon isn't servicing the Coolscan line anymore, but I never looked into it much. 

The Epson's are pretty good actually using their software or Vuescan.

Ive had this a few years.  No complaints.

Same, it does prints, slides, negatives and medium format film and I have been very pleased.

I make my living as a photographer. Several years ago I bought a Plustek scanner for a particular project. The resulting files were used recently to print a master set of prints of this work. Before using the Plustek, I'd had access to a Nikon Coolscan 9000. Almost unbelievably given the price difference, the Plustek's results were very close to the Nikon's--and far and away better than you'll get from any of the flatbed options, especially for 35mm slides. (I used a couple of different Epson flatbed scanners and always found them problematic--though for my 4x5 work there was little else that was affordable.)

This model is packaged with Silverfast SE; there is another with the higher end Silverfast AI software. The hardware is the same between the two.
