Film and Flatbed Scanners

Plustek film scanner and Epson flatbed scanner

If you only want to scan film, you will get better image quality if you buy one of the better dedicated film scanners. If you want to scan prints you will need a flatbed scanner. High quality flatbed scanners will also scan film but you may not get the same image quality as you would get with the best dedicated film scanners. The less expensive film scanners create the lowest quality scans. Don’t buy a scanner on this page (or anywhere else) until you read my article, The Best Film and Flatbed Scanners. A scanner that might be just fine for one person will be totally unsuitable for the next person and I don’t want you to make an informed choice.
