Though I now only use digital. I have a large number of Film shots that I would like to digitise. When I had a quick look at the market there seemed to be a number of 135 only film scanners but I have a combination of 135, 126 and 110 and even a handful of medium format. I would like to be able to digitise all of them. Is there a single scanner that will do the lot. if I put 126 into a 135 scanner I will lose the top and bottom. What recommendations do people have should I just be looking for a fitting on a flatbed scanner or getting a film scanner? Is there a way to effectively save in RAW or will i need to save as PSD or JPG?
I've got a feeling that to find a quality scanner that can take lots of different film sizes you'd have to pay quite a lot of cash - e.g. the Epson Perfection V700, which costs about 400 pounds. Great if you do a lot but I think your best option would be to find a quality photography/graphics shop to do it for you. You could save in TIFF for best quality - PSD is an alternative but it's only usable on Photoshop or PS Elements. JPG isn't a great idea - you'd be losing a lot of quality straight away. Raw can only be made by cameras - I suppose a scanner is a kind of camera but I'm fairly sure it would have to be a real camera.
