    I've been using the Nikon LS-8000 for 2 years now with excellent results.

    Other candidates in roughly the same price range include the Minolta Multi Pro
    and Polaroid SS 120. Each has strengths and weaknesses, advocates and
    detractors.

    35 mm film scanners aren't big enough to scan medium format films.

    Look at his message more closely: he's suggesting a decent but cheap 35mm
    scanner and a flatbed for MF.

    Thanks, David.

    HP S20 and Microtek 5900 work for me. You can pick up both of them for a total
    price of $300 or less.
    The next inexpensive solution is getting a Minolta Scan Multi II ($300 to $500
    on eBay. I may just try one of them out.
