Looking for a scanner to scan new medium format b&w negatives and old family c41 negatives. I want to extract maximum dynamic range and detail out of the negatives so that they can be digitally edited and printed. I have tried the macro tubes with a digital camera, but I'm more interested in having a dedicated scanner with film holder to accomplish this
So far I'm looking at the Canon 9000F and epson v550. What do you folks use or recommend? I don't want to spend $1000+ on a negative scanner, are the higher end models like v850 really that much better in terms of how much they can extract compared to entry level stuff? Again this will be only for negatives.
-thanks in advance
