    Good to know then, not many 35mm-onlys canners especially with a seperate transparency adapter can do medium format. Though the good thing bout it however is, the larger format does yeild higher resolution at the same target size.

    Sadly, things don't improve much with a bigger scanner meant for 35mm and 120mm. I have an Epson 4870 Pro flatbed scanner with Silverfast software, Firewire connections and it takes forever to scan my 120 negatives. I can only scan 6x7 and 645 frames one at a time. The higher the scan resolution, the longer the wait. I can batch scan 35mm negatives and mounted slides much quicker, but scanning any of these images at a high resolution is like watching fingernails grow. I'm sure there has to be a better way.

    Well Scan View doesn't work all that well. Why do scanners limit the area you can scan in transparency mode to 35mm format? I figure I just need to fine a better scanner.

    Going by the manufacturer specs does not work either. I was so frustrated with the Epson 4870 that I called them to find out why I could not batch scan 120 film shot in 645 format. They had no clue what I was talking about. If I remember correctly they blamed the problem on my camera! The plastic film holders they provide make you think that you can scan three rows of negatives at three frames per line. This would make it 9 images you could batch scan. It does not work. Forget 6x7. I wonder if these scanner companies do any research with actual photographers before releasing a scanner? Ok, no more venting for me today.
