    Does anybody know of a good 120 film scanner? I have CanoScan 4200F that scans 35mm but not 120. I have looked and found a couple like the [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Epson 4990 and the Epson 3200. I don't really want to spend that much and will probably buy used. Does anyone have any experience with these scanners?

    thanks in advance

    The Nikon Coolscan 9000 does an excellent job and will scan up to 120 film with ease. This is the current model. I have a 8000 and it does a terrific job as well. Neither is cheap, I picked up a mint 8000 a few months ago for about $1200. At max. resolution it yields 81 Mega Pixel files from a 2 1/4" Sq. neg, 9000X9000 pixel files, about 250 MB TIFF files each. The quality is simply outstanding. IMHO, I would stay away from flatbed scanners unless you only have a very few to scan or quality is low on your priority list.
