    Hello:
    I am considering a Minolta Dimage Dual Scan III film scanner.
    Anyone here has any opinions. It is around $275 us dollars.

    Thanks

    It's performance is above it's price. Unless you are prepared to pay
    twice as much, you're unlikely to do better.
    You're welcome.

    I bought one to keep as a spare in case my Nikon scanner needed servicing.
    When I bought it I did spend the time using it and becoming familiar with
    it. My opinion is, for the money, you more than likely will not be able to
    find a better scanner.

    i don't know about the III, but UPS just delivered a model 950 which
    does nearly all film formats, including 6x6cm. it is a substantial
    looking beastie and has good doc's, cost 299+shipping.

    my purchase was based on a recent thread in rec.crafts.metalworking,
    which still s/b avail. --Loren

    I have one and I like it. A minor weakness is that the dust and scratch
    remover provided with the scanner is not great (unless it has been improved
    since I bought mine last year). This is not a problem for me since my
    slides are fairly clean and I just use a clone tool to remove dust spots. I
    have found that the Polaroid Dust and Scratch Remover software works much,
    much better than the Minolta utility. It is a free download from the
    Polaroid website.

    Best regards,

    Yuji Sakuma

    I have one and it's great. Just can't beat it for the price.
