    I have a 2-yr backlog of 120 film to scan (purely for web & promotional purposes), and would like to graduate from my old Epson flatbed to a dedicated film scanner.

    I know they are extremely scarce, and the prices are out of this world.

    Can anyone recommend something that would set me back about $500-700USD, with a holder that doesn't require me to cut the strips apart?

    Thanks in advance for any advice you can provide.

    You might look up DPUG. You could get a better answer.

    Good luck in your search. But don't look here. We have nothing to contribute to your search but healthy supplies of piss and vinegar. :D Try www.DPUG.org.

    You won't get much on that budget - consider sending it out to someone with a Flextight. And, yeah - DPUG...
