Glad we could help Lawrence! I think you'll be really happy with your 2450.

And Tim, I forgot to say "thanks" for setting me straight on 120 = 2.25". Boy do I feel stupid.

Lawrence, You made a wise choice and the quality of the Neg scans from the 2450 will amaze you...I wish it had been avaliable when I was looking for a Neg. scanner...I bought a Minolta Scan Multi II to handle the 120/220 negs and quite frankly, the 2450 does just as good a job if not better than the more expensive unit (my customers have not complained and keep bringing old Negatives for prints). The only area where the dedicated scanners seem to have a slight edge is in scanning 35mm but by playing around a bit with positioning the Neg strips ( I put mine directly on the Glass platten of the 2450 with the plastic mask/film holder on top), it does a wonderful Job...Give us review of your new scanner when you get it, love to hear about it! Tom

Glad we could help. You should be quite happy with your new scanner. It is certainly the most versitile choice, and big negatives should do pretty well.

Be sure and check out some of the tip sites so that you can get the most out of your new scanner:

Wayne Fulton's site is one of the best introductions I've seen on the web.


Don't feel bad. The jargon is confusing. Medium format, 120, 2.25" 220, 6x4.5cm 6x6cm, 6x7cm 6x9cm. Who would guess from the names that they all use the same basic film stock... I didn't really get it all straight until I started shooting 6x4.5...
