Original concept, scanned film to provide mega pixels images - a poor man's solution.

Why would a proper film scanner be "a poor man's solution"? Perhaps you mean the cheapo Chinese ebay cr@p...

Borrowed an old 6x6 folding camera and scanned the slides by a flatbed scanner, that worked. (up to 120Mp, then the desptop computer spit the dummy, refused to work)

I don't think flatbed scanners are as good as film scanners, so far I haven't seen any, but sure, the larger the film the better it is. Anyway, in my opinion flatbed scanners = "mega pixels images - a poor man's solution." MF film scanners are expensive, so sure, flatbed scanners may very well be good enough for most.
