I bought a dedicated 35mm scanner about 3 years ago since these give good resolution, good dynamic range (DMax) and have an infrared scanning channel for correcting dust & scratches (essential). I bought a Reflecta ProScan 10T


A friend of mine has the "Pacific Image" version, can't remember the model number but this is a reasonably-priced scanner that produces results that are way better than my Epson and Canon mid-range flatbed models.

Yes, that's what I concluded after looking at various reviews. The contrast range (DMax) and resolution, dust scratch removal and resolution is better using a good dedicated 35mm scanner. The Pacific Image and Reflecta scanners are identical.

Is this the one you are referring to?

Just remember that with this device you are back to scanning one neg or slide at a time. If time is not a concern or if you have a lot of patience, this is certainly a possibility for your negs and slides, though you still have to find a solution for your prints.
