I am currently mid-build on a spectacular 500+ square foot fine art darkroom, will be able to easily handle 40” x 50” print sizes. But for scanning, I just sold my Nikon 9000ED because that has been completely and utterly outdone by my new system, a Nikon D850 with a macro lens mounted to a Sinar P2 4x5 camera that has full geared movements for stitching huge files.
Just on Kodachrome slides alone I saw at least a 2 stop improvement in range over a drum scan let alone a Nikon scan. DSLR scanning is the way forward, it has gotten that good.
Now if only Silverfast would make tethered DSLR scanning software, it would help to overcome the orange mask of C41 films.
