Neg Scanners

Hi Keith,

            i think it all depends on what you want to do with the scans really, if you are looking for a cd burning kit etc then Pakon do a good scanner, you can buy 2nd hand F12s now or the f235 new, Otherwise you could have a Nikon coolscan linked to a pc etc. The advantage with a pakon is that it is a whole roll scanner with dust and scratch removal, but as i said before it really depends what you want it for. I am down the road in wiltshire if you need any advice pm me and i'll pass you onto people i know, good to hear you are up and running, best of luck. Andy.

Thanks guys.  Budget is small and as we are a new start we are yet to discover the sort of numbers we are talking about.  Ideally needs to one that feeds the whole roll but price will decide!

We also have a majic Box from Cusack but are having trouble getting the media set for 7x5.  Any ideas?

Hi Keith,

On the neg scanner we did use a nixon coolscan ED before we changed over to our digital Lab. Unfortunately we no longer have it we sold it when we changed over. The advantages of the scanner is that it could scan full rolls of both 35mm and aps film. It also has digital ice so we very rarely had problems with dust etc. Once you have set off the scan you can leave it to scan the roll and write the images to your PC. On the downside it was very slow on Hi res scanning. I think they are around
