Quote - "The V750M scanner is less than half the price of a Nikon dedicated film scanner that can handle the 120 film and the specs seem to be good.
From my past experience with the 500CM I love using a waist level viewfinder and it suits my method of composing my photo's. "
I've gone back to shooting with my 503 and film for various reasons, including your's above. But, I would not suggest you go down the route you're going regarding the scanner you want to purchase. The old rules still apply, you get what you pay for. I looked at just about EVERY scanner from the low-end crappy epsons to high end creo, dainippon and fuji A3 flatbeds and drum scanners from dainippon and ICG. I also looked at the virtual drum of the Imacon 646 & 848. It took months, I travelled to the showrooms and took the same trannies and saw what they could do. At the end of the day I liked the results from the ICG scanner/software combination the best but it was just too big to fit in my small studio and a pain to use mounting fluid, so, I settled on renting the Imacon 848. I found it to be fast, accurate and easy to use. The more you use the software, the better you become at getting a great scan. I don't know where you are, but I was in San francisco and used Rayko's 848 (cheap!) and am now in london and use Calumet's. Day rates are available.
You really will be losing a lot in the transition from film to digital via an epson scan. The epson scanners, bless them, are ok for certain tasks, but if you want a great scan, go for the Imacon 848 or 949. The software is absolutely HEAD-AND-SHOULDERS above the epson, you see what you get BEFORE the scan gets done. Go to www.hasselblad.se
or search the web for the flextight v 4 scanning software tutorials, you'll see that I am right.
