What scanner do you have?
I'd mainly use it for 35mm, but would like to be able to do MF negatives if it could, but it depends on hwo expensive. It takes a long time for me to raise up even 50 bucks, so i try to get stuff as cheap as possible for quality. I saw a bunch of flatbed scanners with adapters for around 30-50 dollars on ebay, do you guys have any idea what i should make sure that they have before i consider bidding? How many dpi, and what bit?
Thanks for all the help and quick comments, you guys are always helpful.
