GateCityRadio, great shots, thanks for sharing. Fair to say the V600 is meeting your expectations? How bout when viewed/printed full size? Any regrets not using the V800?

the cheapo holders, I may get new ones in the future. I've been looking at the ones that can do sprocket holes.
What? They have after market holders that work with the V600?

I haven't actually printed anything that I've scanned since the scans are mostly for web use. I probably should just to see what I would get. Honestly the 35mm zoomed in doesn't look all that great to me, but I guess I've been spoiled by digital lately, I think for web use the scans from the v600 are more than good enough. The 120 (645) scans look very good to me and I'm willing to bet I could get good prints from those. Honestly when I bought this scanner 2 or 3 years ago I didn't have V700 (I don't think the 800 or 850 was around at the time) kinds of money. Would I go for the higher end model now? Probably. Or I could get the V600 and have more money for film and chemicals.

If you don't pixel peep you'll probably be happy with this scanner. For posting images to the web it is just fine.

Lomography makes some that do sprocket holes.

I've decided to jump back into 35mm film with a PZ-1P, my bathroom darkroom and in need of a new film scanner. Before, I had the advantage of my school's Opticfilm 8100i. SilverFast was fine, but I'll be honest: I hated the workflow. Previewing and scanning one frame at a time, then exporting to my computer, then importing into my Lightroom catalog and then editing in Photoshop was just a bit much.

Yeah, that's quite time consuming. This is exactly why we've come up with a raw data workflow in the first place. In SilverFast Archive Suite you can concentrate on scanning your images as raw data files with all the information that is coming from the scanner (even the infrared channel, if the scanner has one). You'll concentrate on nothing but scanning in the first place and do all the editing in the second software which is part of the Archive Suite, the SilverFast HDR Studio Software.
With this HDR Studio software you can edit your images one by one or in a batch - whatever you like. It's way faster than doing it inbetween the scans since the images are digital already.
You keep your 16bit per channel and all image information until you decide to output the images as new files finally. Your originals will stay unchanged - your adjustments are written in addition to them. Thus you can work in a non-destructive and lossless workflow. The HDR Studio comes with everything that you need to bring old photos back to life (no fancy filters for art purposes) so that you basically don't need to have a Photoshop neither.

A nice weekend to all.

I just got myself a Pakon - worth every penny. I'll likely never scan 35mm on the v700 again...

I know this is an old thread, but I'm just thinking about picking up a V600 scanner to scan old film and slides. The V800 is too big a price jump for me, I have mostly 35mm negatives, a few reels of slides and a few rolls of 120 film.

I have an old Nikon Coolscan that connects via SCSI cables that I picked up years ago and used a bit back int he day PC's still had SCSI ports. I could dig it out and probably find a USB adapter, but I don't know if it would be functional or not. I do remember the workflow was ok with 35mm film strips.

If there is a better value for $$ than the V600 with a dedicated 35mm scanner I may consider it, since the bulk of what I want to scan is 35mm film anyways.

I would suggest checking out Better Scanning (Custom film holders for Agfa, Microtek, Canon and Epson film scanners.) for film holders for flatbed scanners, have heard alot of people having alot of better results with them instead of Epson's stuff.

As long as you are not trying to make big ( > letter size?) prints, you should be happy with the V600 with 120 film. The V600 is marginal for 35mm, especially for color negatives. I use Vuescan with my V600, which gives me some options for multiple scans of the same negative (mainly for noise reduction and dynamic range). All this assumes your negatives and slides are well exposed, otherwise you will probably do better with camera scanning (I use a K5 with the 100mm DFA macro) than with the V600. Overall, the V600 is a great value though.
