Re: Which film scanner?

I've been using an Epson V500 for the last year or so and have been very happy with it. While I'm sure that some dedicated film scanners may produce a somewhat better result, from what I'm seeing in my scans I can't imagine it being that much better. At least with 35mm, the resolution limit of the film kicks in before the scanner's does, so that's good enough for me. A key point in getting good scans though is getting comfortable with the software and understanding its strong and weak points. That takes some practice and time, but it makes a bigger difference than the gear I feel.

Here's a few samples from my last batch of B&Ws a day or two back:
