Slide Scanners
Author: J.Ferris

All,

As my Minolta DiMage scanner seems to have pulled the pin on me. I am now looking for a new slide scanner. I know some folks have or are using the Epson V850 with the slide adapter, but am now hearing good reports on the Plustek 8200 line. Can anyone give any reports or reviews on the merits of either. Many thanks.

J.

I had a Plustek 8200i but it did not hold up to heay use. The LCD's got weak and scans went down hill after about 2000 scans. I have a Epson 850 Pro and have scanned some slides but haven't been too happy with color rendition, so I use a Nikon LS-5000 that I clean and repair as needed. I do like the Epson for medium format negative scanning. It does a fairly nice job on those.

What about using a rig based on a DSLR?
