    I've been looking at the Pacific Image 3600 pro which runs about $250 US and has gotten a lot of good reviews. Minolta has also gotten a lot of good reviews.

    If you’re only scanning 35mm, should be able to get a good model for less than 400 USD
    But if you need one for roll film or larger then it will likely be more in the 1000-1500 USD range. I believe Voodoo has a Minolta 35mm model and is happy with it

    I have been personally looking at the Microtek 1800tf, it is a multiple format film and flatbed scanner, it’s a little expensive 1130 USD
