I am looking for a 35mm film scanner as well. However, I need it for professional use, but I hope it's okay to use this thread anyway. I'm not looking for the absolute top of the line, but something reasonably price with reasonable quality. So, I wonder if anyone can recommend a good scanner, in the sub-$1000 price range. Of course, if it can scan medium format it would be a great bonus, but judging from the limited research I have made, I think that's not an option in that price range.
Also, I wonder how flatbed scanners compare to real film scanners. Using a flatbed would let me scan medium format as well, but with what loss of qualty?
