    It also depends on size of the negative and if it's color or black and white. The longest I'd say is about half an hour for a full tray of color 35mm (12 frames). 120 goes faster simply because you are scanning fewer frames - the holders are only big enough for 3 frames of 6x6 or 4 frames of 6x4.5.

    Your CanoScan. It's either that or the Epson.

    That's not bad really. The way it was being mentioned, I was expecting longer. I imagine the DSLR method might be a quicker capture but the post processing difference might even things up a bit.

    One thing I believe has not been mentioned is software. OEM software with any device is generally good but not the best. Personally I use Silverfast with my Epson V600.

    We did too. It's also a good piece of software. Wife still does with an older HP scanner with document feeder. I switched when I fell into a large negative and positive archive job with boxes full of negatives and old photos being organized for a digitized family tree.

    The archival feature in Silverfast saved me some time.
