    Re: DSLR scanning vs. Epson V800 scanning

    I am scanning 35 mm to 5 x 7.

    Can I acheive Epson V800 like results using a Nikon D500 or D5600 without stiching with a good Macro lens?

    Thanks.

    DSLR scanning vs. Epson V800 scanning

    I have been using an Epson V800 for a short while now.

  10. Re: Epson V850-Epson V800, what is the next step up.

    The dslr scanners are impressive but I don't think I could built one in ten year.

    Thanks.

  11. Re: Epson V850-Epson V800, what is the next step up.

    Peter, is there a lot of set up time with a dslr? I assume if I google it I would get a lot of results.

    I have a Sony a6000. I wonder if that would be sufficient.

    Thanks

    Thanks for response. Epson states in user manual that you can't save a jpeg, tiff, etc when scanning on the film bed portion at 4800 ppi.
