    Does anyone know if Drum scanning is really worth the extra money over using something like a Nikon Coolscan V.

    If you need the quality it most certainly is better than CCD scanning. You get extra noise especially in the shadow detail with CCD scanners. I don't own a dedicated medium format scanner so when I want a high quality print I just pay to get a 16-bit drum scan ($45 each). I've seen 16-bit drumscans that cost $80/each :shock:
