>>3229389>Not him, but what did you enjoy most/would you recommend for 4x5?
not sure what you mean
for shooting 4x5, I can't say I really enjoyed it, since had few opportunities actually take pictures and did not enjoy the pace it had - it was cumbersome
on the other had, nicely printed 4x5 negatives have an actual photographic feel that it's definitely lacking on 35mm and aps/ff digital
that is, so much detail in a large print that feels realistic, as says Ctein
for scanning 4x5, you do not want epson scanners since their holders are rather flimsy and, if I recall correctly, only the v750 model and upwards do have a holder for 4x5 and 8x10
both microtek i800 and f1 are decent scanners for lf, since they have good holders and no glass interface in-between for holding the film
resolution-wise is way more than enough, given the size of the negs, though not that sharp at 100%, if you're a pixel peeper>>3229412>As of right now a dedicated 35mm scanner seems like the best route. Can you recommend any for about 200 usd? where would i look to buy them, amazon? ebay? craiglist?
any plustek, nikon coolscan, minolta dimage is decent
look for info on the specific models you find, though
ebay, craiglist, all good for buying
