I am using an Epson Perfection 4180 to scan a lot of old 35mm film strips.

I really like the batch scan, but seem to get pretty poor quality.

I found that scanning at 2400 and 1200 dpi gave the same general quality, one was 4x bigger,and had more grainy dots, but no real information.

I used their options for reduce graininess, color correction,and scratch & dust removal.

Should I expect more?
would I get a significantly better scan using a beetter scanner?

I am considering getting a Minolta Scan Dual IV, would it be better? Does it have batch scanning?

A friend has an older Nikon CoolScan LS30, would it be better - they are cheap now!

I saw one option - PlusTech 7200 - but it has no batch mode,and reviews were mixed.

I'd be willing to pay up to about $300 for something if needed, but there are a bewlitering number of options and models.

Thanks for guidance!
