I have read that for the highest quality 35mm negative scanning, a dedicated negative/slide scanner like the PlusTek OpticFilm 8200i Ai is better than a flatbed scanner like the Epson Perfection V850 Pro Scanner. Does anyone have experience comparing them?
Asked by: Paul L.
In general it is best for 35mm slides to use a dedicated film scanner over a flat bed scanner. Like some of these, https://bhpho.to/3VHAOzd .
