Re: Photo Slide Scanner

Minolta has gone out of the photo business and this includes the film scanners. This is rather unfortunate: I own a Dimage Scan Elite 5400. Sony is doing the maintenance and support but I don't know how good they are at it and how long they'll support Minolta's equipment.

I am very happy about the image Scan Elite 5400. It is solidly built and produces good results. However, having mechanical parts, it can break or block even if one is careful when using it. This happened to me twice (I have this scanner for about 4 years now I think): the film holder got stuck inside the scanner and this required re-adjustments and replacement of some belt and wheels. Minolta has always been quick and gracious about this and I got it repaired at no cost (beside shipping). Since then I have had no issue.
