    Hey TPF. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for negative scanners. I would be scanning mostly 35mm negs. but would also like the ability to scan medium format films. Any suggestions???

    we just bought the Canon 8400F the other day and I'm really impressed with the quality and ease of use... however you'll have to wait for more opinions if you want something more high end. Maximum res on the Canon is 3200 DPI so it seems to be able to do 8 by 10's pretty well from a 35mm neg. It accept 120 film also, plus colour slides. Cost 270 Australian dollars. GOod luck

    Most normal dedicated film scanners are for 35mm. The ones which do both MF and 35mm tend to be much more expensive. I would think a flat bed scanner with attachments would be more successful for this type of thing, especially if you don't have a large quantity of money to chuck at it.
