    Need help in selecting a top quality film scanner

    I have been doing some online research on what film scanner I should
    be purchasing to accomplish the digital conversion of approximately
    4000 B&W negatives, Kodacolor negs, Ektachrome, Fujichrome and
    Kodachrome slides.

    Although the cost of the equipment is important, quality of the
    scanned images is most important. In addition to my KM Maxxum 7D, I'd like to
    continue using my film cameras on occasion, but will need to
    know that the film can be reliably digitized.

    In this perspective, I have been seriously considering the Konica
    Minolta DiMAGE Scan Elite 5400 II Film Scanner, after finding that
    the Nikon scanners' film handling equipment attracts such strong

    I have probably 1500 Kodachrome slides, and I understand that the
    ICE4 works poorly with these, as well as with B&W negatives. Most of
    my Kodachrome slides, some of which date back to the 1950s are in
    pretty good shape, but some do have mildew problems.

    Might anyone have any suggestions for the equipment and software that
    I should be considering?
