    What flatbed scanner for 4x5/5x7 negatives?

    I no longer have a darkroom, just about out of Polaroid materials, and will soon need to start making digital prints from my LF negatives.
    What moderately priced flatbed scanner do you recommend?
    Thanks

    Epson v-750 or v700.
    If you can find a good 4990, that will do fine as well.

    I forgot to mention that I only need to scan B&W negatives.

    The 700 or 750 scanners are good. I currently use a 750 with the wet scanning glass for 4x5. Works great when you sandwich the neg between a ANR glass of sorts. If you want you could grab the updated 800/850. I'd rather the 700/750 due to cheaper price though.

    You should be seeing a number of used Epson v700/750 being offered for sale, now that the 800/850 is out. They work perfectly well for 4x5 and 5x7 - although since no film holder is provided for 5x7, you can either make one yourself, or use a ANR glass holder.

    Are either the Epson v700 or v750 supported under Win 8?

    What's an ANR glass holder? Does it use water as medium?
