    I have a Canoscan D1250U2F which is cheaper and uses the much faster USB 2 connection.

    I think that's the price for the model without the built-in film adapter on the lid right? The D1250U2F I bought is supposed to cost $369 or something like that but I bought at a promotional price of $269 at Challenger and came with a free USB2.0 PCI card from Canon Singapore.

    well, as u can already expect, this kind of scanners will never beat the dedicated film scanners like those nikon and canon offer. i'd rate the quality as... average.

    To give you an idea of the film scanning quality of the Canoscan D1250U2, this is a scan I did earlier of a slide I took of an orchid:


    But definitely, a dedicated film scanner would do a much better job. They are however quite expensive though.

    Hi tomcat, what is the maximum resolution the 1250U2F can scan for a 35mm slide? If you scan at the maximum, what is the number of pixels you get (e.g. 2048 x 1700)? I'm quite keen to get a flatbed scanner with film adapter too, and 1250U2F looks really good. I'm just wondering if it can scan at enough resolution for me to print on 4R paper.

    If possible, please post a full-size scan of your slides! Thanks very much.

    Tweek:
    4R is 4" x 6". To produce a photo quality print, you need to print at a minimum of 200 dpi. Therefore, a photo size of 800 x 1200 pixels would produce an acceptable 4R print.

    I scanned that slide to get a final image of 5.34" x 8.08" at 300 dpi which means that I could have made a 8" x 12" print at 200 dpi if I so wanted to. A 100% crop of the scanned image can be found here.

    denizenx:
    Slides always have higher colour saturation than negatives. For slides, I like to use Fuji Velvia and Fuji Provia 100. For negatives, I'm not very particular about brands but if I have to choose, I would take Fuji Superia or Kodak Gold.
