    I've got one. It's not great for film and it can only do 35mm. Reflection scans are pretty good tho. I'm thinking of getting a seperate film scanner.

    I would not recommend this scanner for film scanning unless you just need a very basic scan for web display. If you are scanning 35 mm only and on a budget, see if you can still find a Minollta Dual Scan IV in stock somewhere.

    Another scanner i could maybe afford is CanoScan 5000F. The Minolta is too expensive. I would mainly use it for websized pics (max. 1000px the longest side, but usually around 650px the longest side)
