    Re: I don't like slide film for scanning

    I scan with an Epson 4990 Photo, the very old predecessor to your scanner, which also claimed a 4.0Dmax or so. That is straight up wishful thinking, but I feel like the scanner does fine. I would...

    I'd choose a monorail for the ability to rear focus, which seems a little quicker for this work. But as you say, a less technical looking wooden camera probably results in a more comfortable sitter.
