    The Epson V500 works fine for me. At least it did until I decided 4x5 would be fun. Now I'm panostitching my larger negs which is less than satisfactory. The new V600 seems to be similarly restricted to maximum MF negs. So, the moral of the story is, if there's even the faintest chance that you'll want to scan transparencies larger than MF, spend the extra for a V700.

    Pages that I click on like the above Epson.com site are coming up in a small triangle, what happened and how do I fix it? I use Windows XP.

    Back to topic:
    Oh, that v600 doesn't cover sizes over medium format right? I'd like to post some 5x7 and up, I could do the David technique and have but scanning would be better. Maybe I'll save for a better one. I have a Canoscanner 1200 something, but it's slow and doesn't do negs and slides.

    Hey, on the other side, I sold off or gave away my scanners. I just didn't have room for all those digigizmos, and working carefully, the DSLR does the job (as for what "working carefully" means, I posted about that over on hybridphoto.com). The darkroom is all still there, and by getting rid of the flatbed, I gained a table just for the Adams Retouching Machine.

    Maybe Sean has it configured so that you can't access digital equipment sites from APUG... :o

    Canoscan 8800F works well with both 135 and 120 negatives, as well as doing a good job with prints. It provided me with a way into B&W photography, as I do not have a darkroom, just a changning bag and some development tanks.

    I use a DSLR on a copy stand for this purpose myself, with lights for prints and a lightbox for negs and transparencies. It's straightforward copy work just like with a film camera.
    Wow, this is such a great idea that I feel a bit daft for not thinking of it (especially as I will hopefully have some 4x5 negatives soon and was stumped as to how to get them online for suggestions for improvement).

    On a related note, I have a 4x5 slide duplicator, can't remember the make (Chroma-something). It's basically a color enlarger in reverse. It's really massive, in two pieces (the base with light source, film holder, and color filter dials, and a bellows rail with a t-thread mount on one end and39mm threads on the other). It's in storage. I don't have a lens that works - my old 50mm and 75mm enlarger lenses fit but their aperture rings are recessed to the point that I can't adjust them without removing them, and the bellows track needs some work (it seems to get stuck when focusing). I'd love to use this for copying slides but I have no idea how to repair it nor what lens to use.

    Thank You David,

    I'll give my wifes D70 a whirl, however file size etc can be an issue so I'll have to learn how to change her settings then retore it or she'll skin my alive.
    No escaping it!
    I must step on fallen leaves
