Not possessing a scanner of my own but wishing to have one for a variety of purposes (not least for being able to post something in the galleries eventually) I have been looking at the adverts to see what is available. I see that Epson 4870 photo is being advertised and I was wondering if any members had any knowledge of the suitability of this for scanning MF and LF negatives for contact printing. Taking a different viewpoint, would any of the other and cheaper, Epson models produce equally good results. I do have access to a dedicated 35mm scanner from time to time but the flatbed scanner will be located at home. Any input will be appreciated.
