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,


It only does 35 mm though.
