    I bought it for the 3 different format capability.

    I don't see anything about Dmax mentioned in the specs for it.

    Here's an example of my scan. The ONLY thing I did was tweek the histogram to help with the contrast. http://www.flickr.com/photos/24808439@N06/2342804988/

    Steve, it looks like you got a great deal and it does 120 as well...I hate you.

    This machine wasn't even on my radar, but I was looking for something with 4x5, 8x10 negative capabilities. I'm not sure If I'll ever possess those capabilities but I wanted to buy only one scanner, my first and last.

    The largest it will do is 4 x 5. I don't have anything larger.
    BUT...I bet HP does have one that will do an 8 x 10.

    I don't think a scanner is a very good piece of equipment to evaluate a negative. The best thing to use for that is a contact print -- you don't need anything special to make those.
    - Developer (D72)
    - Fixer (you already have it)
    - Water (stop/wash)
    - Photographic paper (grade 2, cheap)
    - A bulb
    - A piece of glass to keep the negative flat.

    Thats it.

    And keep in mind that flatbed scanners (4990, V500-700-750 and other, OK, maybe Imacons are exception) being good for MF and LF are not particulary good for 35mm film...

    dfoo,
    I totally agree, a bunch of us have been cogitating that very subject over here: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum41/2...make-them.html

    Rather than start a new thread I thought I might search the archives for a relevant discussion. This one appears to be quite relevant so forgive me but I'd like to resurrect this.

    My Epson 3170 has (as of tonight) lost the ability to scan negatives. I can still scan prints, but trying to scan negatives puts it into a perpetual state of warming up.

    Right now I'm only working in 135 and 120 film formats but I expect to have a 4x5 camera within the next 6 months. So I'd very much like to have the capability to scan this as well.

    My working budget will be about $200.

    For those that have the Epson V500, do you find it satisfactory for 135 and 120 films, scanning for web? Better than satisfactory?

    Do I understand correctly that the lid does not adequately facilitate scanning negs larger than 120 film? (meaning I'll need to find another solution for 4x5 scans at some point)

    Hi viridari,

    Scanner topics in the general forums have been pretty much regulated to discussion on Hybridphoto.com these days.

    Also, there is an active hybrid group on APUG that you can join, found in the groups section.
