I want to start scanning my own film. Will a V600 give me what I get from the lab??

Yes and no. There are good, better, and best scan, all costing differently. I have found my V600 does pretty good for my purposes posting on the web and making slide shows to show on Youtube, Flickr, and my 75" HDR 4K TV. I rarely print.

What do you want to do with your scans? That's the first question to ask. Also, what type format do you use?

As mentioned, it will depend on your purpose for your images and which lab is currently scanning your film. We'll need more information.

Flatbed scanner = for the web, prints up to 8x12 maybe get a 12x18.

Lab (commercial scanner) = prints larger than 8x12, tight crops, manipulation.
