Scanning B&WColor Negatives



What scanners are the members using to create images for posting in this forum?

I use an Epson Perfection 3200 and am very happy with it.

It comes with a simple version of Silverfast. I already had Vuescan and I went back to it. It seems easier to use.

I use a Minolta Dimage Scan Elite 5400 film scanner. To be honest, any scanner would be fine for posting images, as the resolution and file size are both limited by this site. To remove grain I have found that a little gaussian blur followed by unsharp mask workes really well.
