high resolution scanner

  User-271645 09:54 04 May 2005

I have several medium format transparencies that I would like to scan myself and in the future use for reproduction in a catalogue (litho printed).
I can get these scanned professionaly at £10 per scan but as I have 50 to do I would prefer to do them myself ,then save to disc.
Does anyone know if this is possible using a domestic scanner?

There a several dedicated film scanners available, particularly associated with the camera names - Minolta, Cannon and so on. They tend to be pricey, and more so if they can handle > 35mm.

Without checking, I guess you will about break even, if you buy your own!

I have a canon 8000f which will scan 4 mounted or 12(2x6) unmounted 35mm frames. They do take a while to scan about 2minutes each for the mounted,
but will scan all 4 in sequence. The quality is excellent, at the time it cost about £109 from pixmania. Good scanner for other stuff too does v good photo scans.
