    I'm going to buy a new film scanner. I have it narrowed down to the Epson 4990 and the Hewlett Packard G4050. At the moment, I only work with 135 and 120, but would like to someday get into LF. I know the Epson will support the 35 and the MF, but I'm not sure if it'll do LF. Anyone know for sure?

    Overall, who has used these scanners, and what do you think of them? I've found lots of reviews here for the Epson, BTW, but none for the Hewlett Packard. Thanks in advance!:)

    Epson 4990 is well known as a wonderful unit. No idea about HP but Epson has always been a leader in the flatbed scanner market.

    I am a bit biased towards Epson...
