Re: Options for Scanning 120 films ???

Hi guys,

I am shooting with a Mamiya 645 1000s, which is a lovely cam, but I feel a bit frustrated by the lack of available options for scanning 120 films. I really like the Plustek 8200i but I can only scan 35mm.

Flat beds is an option (V600/V800/V850 series), but I would like to know whether there would be better options for scanning MF negatives / slide films. I do NOT want to use a dSLR/camera to scan my negatives.

What are the older Konica Minolta scanners capable to scan MF films?

Seriously, in 2020, and we have so few options.

I would have liked something like the Braun FS-120 or Plustek 120, but there are nowhere to be found new.

Thanks for your help.



If Quality is your concern, i would go with the Reflecta 10T. And with SilverFast AI Studio 8.8 Scanning Software. There is nothing better for this Pricepoint, even not the (very) famous Nikon CoolScan Scanners - the 10T scans about ~23 MP Resolution.

I don't shoot (enough) Film, to justify so much cost for a decent Scanner. The Epson Flatbeds, even the V850 Series, can't compete, reach the Reflecta 10T anyway into Quality, when it does use SilverFast AI Studio.

Good Light,
