The Epson V850-Pro does pretty good at 8x10, and produces scans capable of being printed
at about 30?x40?. ?I *WISH* I could scan my 11x14 negatives. ?To be able to do well
requires either a vintage flatbed, or better yet a good Drum Scanner. ?Realistically, I
need a good Drum Scanner, which in turn will require a Classic Mac to drive it (since I
don?t want to use a Windows PC).
You don?t want to know what it costs to shoot 4x5 transparencies, let alone 8x10. ?I have
a project, that to pull off, is probably going to require 8x10 transparencies. ?I?m mainly
working with 8x10 and 11x14 B&W, in fact I have a whole pile of 8x10 film that needs
to be processed (I?m caught up on the 11x14). ?This is also causing problems for my
Classic Computers, since it fights for space (my PDP-11/44 actually has two enlargers
sitting on top of it).
I have considered a couple photo projects using the Commodore 64 as the brains.

retired scanner we were gifted.. .. thing Is bw only..
With old scanners, always look at what the I/O interface is, and see if it?s a model of
scanner supported by VueScan. VueScan is *amazing* and produces results that are about as
good as SilverFast with my Epson V850 Pro. It also keeps some vintage scanners around here
