    Odds are, since you have the "technology that shall not be spoken of" in house, that you have some sort of photo editor on a computer that can easily downsize the file in "post processing" and eliminate the need to alter camera settings. I shoot the most mundane trivia in max resolution, raw mode "just in case."

    This thread may be considered off topic by some, but I'm still glad it was posted. This has been going through my mind for some time since I have 4 x 5 film and a lot of old negatives of unknown format larger than 120. My one and only scanner went into the trash several years ago. Mr. Goldfarb's solution sounds like the way to go, and something I would not have thought of on my own. Certainly more cost effective than a V700.

    Thanks much, David. You just saved me a bunch that I can now spend on more film.

I bought an Epson 4490 on Epson.com refurb'd for about $90 and it works for 35mm to 120 film and all flat art to about 9x12". Even the really crappy scanner on my new HP Deskjet All-in-one has enough resolution and dmax for web images. What about your current scanner isn't working for you?

    I did this too.

    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.
    David, you just broke my heart…
    Mine too! I was so upset by that post that I tossed my cookies!

    From time to time I end thinking about a scanner. For 35mm, I seen those new plusteks that seem interesting but...
    "Hmm, well, I could use negative film more, B&W as well, and having a way to see the photos without a darkroom, but, since I may use more slide, then It's only purpose would be share and maybe some prints... But $200, that's a small pile of film and it's processing... And in a few years the model gets replaced"
    So I end: "Bah, forget it! I may buy it when I have a nice archive"

    For prints, I think that any flatbed can do decent scans. Some will be noisy (like my all in one printer) but useable for not too big sizes. For film, that's different. They say the Epsons are nice enough
