Most folks will refer you to a Nikon, but I prefer the Minolta - Any Minolta's: http://www.kenrockwell.com/minolta/mp.htm

i had the minolta scan dual IV and it was great.. especially considering a price tag of only around 225-250USD.. and the minolta 5400 is probably about as good as it gets as far as consumer film scanners go..

I have the Smart Scan 3600. It works well and scans images to 3600. IT does have lessor settings and I find myself using 2800 to limit the size of the file.

My biggest complaint has been the lack of software with the unit for scratch removal and color correction/restoration.

Otherwise the scanner does its job. Works well with film strips and individual slides. If you have a lot of 35mm negatives and you get your work flow going it's fine. Slides are one by one and you'll have to get an adapter for APS film. If I were to do it again I would probably get the Canon 4000FU or one of thenewer Minoltas. In scanners speed is important but that is generally a factor in transfering files to your computer. The Smartscan has usb 2.0 and firewire so it is fast. Software for editing would be a definite priority.
