Well I tried some simple film scanning with my Epson Perfection V700 Photo film scanner. Since I have never used a film scanner of any type before I am still in a learning process, but the few strips I did try came out close to what I was able to do with the D700 and a PB6 with PS6. One problem I ran into is with only 4 GB of RAM, there is a limit as to what I can scan into my computer and the time to scan even one strip of film is very long if you select high resolution and things like dust removal (more than 30 minutes, although it scans and stores each image in that time). I also have Silverfast SE and have not tried that yet, but I have looked at it and it appears similar to the Epson Scan Sw, but I am sure is more powerful. I need to try many more scans before I can say one way or another if I like this better than just copying the slide in my D700. Certainly one advantage of that approach is that it is very fast, while scanning is slow. I don't plan on upgrading my computer this year. I was going to upgrade the one I previously built with a new MB and more memory, but decided to wait untill next year and build a new one from the ground up and convert my old one to a Windows server. Until I do that it will be impossible for me to take advantage of 36 images on the scanner both because I will run out of memory and second it can take hours to do so with my current Dual Core setup.
