    Can anyone point me in the direction of a high res / reasonable price
    scanning company to scan some aerial shots taken on a ETRS. I want to
    maximise resolution so this probably needs to be done on a drum scanner in
    order to blow sections up to A3. I am hoping for 5000 dpi or more!

    Can anyone suggest a flatbed scanner that can do 6 x 4.5 negs/trannies

    The Epson 2450 / 3200 / 4870 family can all do 6 x 4.5 (and larger).
    Of these the 4870 gives the best resolution and dynamic range, but the
    others can give good enough results for printing up to Super A3.

  7. I don't know if that includes the 3170 but I can recommend it as good value
    for money. The performance is not as good as the 4870, of course, but it's a
    lot cheaper.

    Just bought a 3170 for £125-00 and am delighted. Many thanks.

  10. I'm glad to have helped, Ian. Thanks for letting me know.

    You might want to spend some of the cash you've just saved (<g>) on some
    different software. I find the Epson software good enough, if cumbersome, but
    if you want the ultimate in control, you might consider using Vuescan. A lot
    of pros rely on it but you might consider it OTT for your needs. You can
    download and try it free but the results are watermarked. See .
