    hi!


    I would like to have your advice for an affordabe scanner for 120 film ...
    I don't think that I would need it for huge prints, I heard that Epson Perfection 3200 is quite good for its price, did you have the chance to use it?
    do you think it is a good scanner ?

    thanks,

    I have the junior version, the 3170, and it works great on my old hasselblad Tri-X negs. I can get a 120mbyte tiff that easily works to A1 size and sharp. I use Vuescan (www.hamrick.com), which gives more options than the std epson software. Little soft on a full dynamic range, but with Vuescan you can do many passes.

    I just picked up the Canon Canoscan 8400F and I have been really happy with the results so far.

    another vote for the epson 3170. I've been pretty amazed at its 120 scans. If I need anything better, I'd take it to a photolab.
