Flatbed Scanners vs Dedicated Scanners
I noticed that there are alot of 2400dpi flatbed scanners capable of scanning negs/slides available in the market. Now their prices are more than 50% of their dedicated counterparts which only does 2700dpi.
My question, how much difference are looking at, in terms of quality, speed and convienience?? Is it really worth getting a dedicated??
Thanks to all the scanner pros!!

Depends on your needs.. f you see yourself scanning more slide/neg. Buy a dedicated canner.. If you see yourself scanning more doucment, with a few slide occsionally. buy a flat bad...
As flatbed is made to scan document, it "focus" of the ccd is right on the glass panel.. With a slide mount, the scanner might find some problem getting a sharp pic...
That what i think as i have gone thru the same dileman.. I choose a flatbed due to it's cost and versitability.

Digging old thread :P
Just wondering. Have flatbeds closed up the gap in terms on quality with dedicated 35mm scanners?
