...and Gals. So, I'm looking to cut down my scanning time but still retain a semblance of usable scan. I use a Minolta dedicated currently, its the dogs danglies but scanning takes forever one frame at a time, I don't think I need it day to day since scans aren't my focus of image production these days, so I'm looking to replace it with a flatbed that will scan more in a pass. I'm not gonna need the 4K dpi of the minolta either. So I've done my research but I thought I'd put the question out there in case I've missed something, between us all at this forum we must have used just about everything there is. My requirements are - To scan 120 primarily, (anything more is a bonus) Reflective scanning not required. Digital Ice would be nice. True 1500dpi min, no quoted claims To scan more than 3 frames of 6x6 per pass I don't want to have to fanny about shimming carriers in the corridor of uncertain focus and Dmax anywhere over 3.5 will be fine. Preferably something manufactured in the last 5 years to present I'll be keeping the Minolta in the loft cos I'll never own another one, its not a money raising exercise, there is no budget though I think I can rule out anything over a grand, I'm not looking for a Flextight or Heidelberg for 1500dpi... What say you oh wise and wonderful..
