advice of film/slide scanner


Standard Member
Hi, I'd like to archive some old slides and negs and hopefully be able to blow them up to at least A4 size at photo quality. Can sombody recommend a good film scanner at a reasonable price that'll be up to the task and where to buy it from.

approx £200-£300
I've decided on a Minolta Dual Scan IV when they become available at £249. Bloody rip off Britain though as the US amazon has them listed at $285 (£158)! Such is life. If anybody else has any other recommendations though - please LMK.

I'm also looking for a scanner at the moment,

Just found the Minolta Dual Scan IV for £239 incl.

Go to Digital Depot

Does anyone have any experience with Minolta scanners ?



I actually use the Minolta Dimage scan 5400, progressed from a Nikon coolscan II, it is a cracking scanner and we have had no problems and seems to require very little tweaking when scanning trans and just a little more for negs.

Best regards David
