It is very possible that this question has been asked here before. I continue to shoot film and I get my film scanned and placed in a CD but having a good scanner at home would be of great help. I like Minolta but I have not looked into them lately and I know that now Minolta belongs to Sony. Never used a Nikon scan so I cannot say much about them and the same goes with others. Heard a lot about Epson flatbeds but never used one. I am shooting mostly color negative mainly 35mm but planning on beginning to shoot medium format soon but could use a service bureau to scan those negatives. So, what do you guys suggest? Thank you.
