suggestions on pro level 35mm film scanner?

!thank you very much for suggestions, the models you mention seem worth further investigation, except for the Plustek Opticfilm 7600i, if you say it's slow, that automatically pushes it out of contest unfortunately.





!thanks, jcdoss. will do research on Pacific Image Powerfilm.




yes, that is true - i just posted the question in a hurry and didn't pay attention enough to specs, because last few months i'm scanning mostly photos and large format glass negatives, so the ppi numbers for adequate 35mm film scanning vent out of my head for the moment :)





basically it means at least 10 frames per hour without any automatic corrections like dust removal and ICE in high quality up to 2400-4000 dpi, not at 1200dpi as i mentioned in first post - it was my fault of posting in a hurry. can't really answer now about software, it depends on computer/software guy, but until now we used SilverFast® SE Plus 8 provided with epson perfection v750 pro.




!thanks for commenting, dsmithhfx. now the plan is to get epson perfection v850 pro for photos + large format film/glass negatives and additionally to have 35mm film scanner. in last years epson perfection v750 pro was used for everything, which was good enough for long time until recently it wasn't :)




yes, the uneven or large formats are painful to scan, but laying them on glass surface frequently creates the newton rings, which are sometimes impossible to get rid of without leaving traces.

the comparison to hi-fi stero equipment is very precise :)





true, the curly negatives are not rarity here too, time to time films arrive, which are held in rolls even from 60s. so they are rolled backwards and held for a month or two if there is no hurry, then sliced 6 frames per strip and scanned with no problems whatsoever. but the real problem are films which are bent not from beginning to end, but from one edge to another. i wonder are there any glassless holders available to insert such negatives and hold them down flat, with some kind of small bars fitting in between frames. if not, i should make some myself then.





that is quite unpredictable in future, but usually more than 80% are true b/w, rest 20% divided between slides and colour negatives.

!thank you all sincerely for suggestions and comments :)

it's needed for museum archives. but seriously i'm quite shocked after searching info in the net, it appears there is just a small number of trusted products in this category. i guess they'll need to live with a4 scanner, perhaps epson perfection v850 pro will do. any serious alternatives for a4 format?

!thank you for responding. i already looked into Epson 12000 XL Pro as a candidate, but as you said - it's way out of monetary possibilities. a3 is needed for photos, the old glass negatives are rarely larger than size between a5 and a4.

!hi. i was asked to help choosing professional flatbed scanner for photos, films and nonstandart size glass negatives, ideally A3. budget still is unclear, possibly between 1000 and 2000 $. they used epson perfection v750 pro before, so it shold be at least with same specs. i tried to search in the web, but the devil himself can break a leg there. any paricular model suggestions? :)

agreed, the tower is just cold style late socialist office architecture, but it works well in trio for photo just as one of three different styles.

!thank you, torashi. it's Riga, Latvia. but yes, i would like not to have this insurance ad there. building on left is finished, it's just kind of modern architecture, so you never know :) but on this photo is only half of the building. long ago i posted another picture, taken from different location where it's in full size, but with trees obscuring the lower part. official name for this house is "center house", but people call it cukurtrauks - sugar bowl. it's considered one of the ugliest buildings in the city. however i don't have any opinion about that, but it is certainly a good photo subject.
