Re: Scanners and Scanning Services

For scanning prints, any flatbed scanner should be okay.  For film, if you have a lot to scan and want the best quality, then a dedicated film scanner is best for most color film.  The Plustek should be fine, I use a Nikon Coolscan V.  I cannot recommend anything for black&white, since I have not tried that.  If you want to scan Kodachrome, then the only film scanner that I could recommend is the Nikon 9000, or you should expect to spend a lot of time (either with the scanner software or with post processing - photoshop or LR) to approximate the original image for each photograph.
