I have looked at the past threads and found one on scanners, but it is several months old and thought i would start this to see what experiences were gained in that time.
I am looking for a scanner for negatives (35mm and 120 film) but also for documents and prints, so flatbed i think is the way to go.
Looking for something with good quality however not really prepared to pay over $1000. I was looking at the epson V700 which looks like it fits the bill. I have read reviews on the internet, but it is good to hear first hand accounts from people
So I ask: What scanner do you use? What are the good points and some places where it falls short etc. and possibly anyone using other brand / model scanners that will do similar things to the epson. I have an open mind at this point.
I would hopefully be able to pick up a good condition one off ebay for a cheaper price. Since i have not much experience with buying scanners, I wonder if second hand ones should be avoided?
