For some of us younger folks, it helps. a lot. Admittingly, I do not know if I would have taken part of "analog" (I really hate that word...) photography if this were not available. I know many other photographers would feel the same way. Maybe not the majority but there are some that bank on scanning: professional and hobbyists alike. This age is about digital.
