Zane -   thanks  for  reminder.  Yes  this  scanner    goes  scssi  to  a  large  cofax  processing  card that is  supposed  to  do  fast  working magic... but  die  to faster   PC and CPU  speeds  today  may not  be  really needed  or  will HANG!

We  do  use the  vuscan  for   use  with a  hp scanner that  has a  4x5  negative  scanner attachment on it.   It  will scan   35 mm  to  4x5....   really  not   great resolution  for  35 mm to  11x14  size   but   for   4x5  to  11x14  or  8x10   works  just   fine.
Zane  yea  amazing I was  going to   scrap  that  scanner  now it is a part of the workforce...
I DO  WANT  A  EPSON 800 series that  goes up to 8x10  someday......though..... 
(Back in my  youth  in the mid 70s I  did   advertising photography  for  products and    brochures  etc... and   many  people wanted     image of n  4x5 transparency ... some  required  8x10  even.   8x10  not  cheap  to  shoot.... $5 a  sheet  purchase  and $5  a sheet  processing  if  you  took to  lab. )
OK    so  for  my  4x5  stuff   this old  scanner  works and  also we  have ad  shots to  be scanned  at museum too ... one  example is the  REGENCY ( IDEA ELECTRONICS)  ad  shot  transparency collection  ( They made  first transistor  radio and all kids of  great  goodies  ... uhf converters, radio transceivers, public services band monitors  and more-)  Now  if  any other of  you have  anything  on  Ektachrome   scan it  now since as  time progresses the  colors  will get  even crappier!!!!    I love  really old   4x5  KODACHROME   transparencies  the  colors are still  a beauty... the  reds are  majestic and vibrant!! ( search  internet  for  some of the  WW2  color  stuff...  amazing)  reason?  Aniline  dies   in Kodachrome vs  the crappy>ass organic  dyes in the Ektachrome)....  Anyway...  Message here ... scan any and all color  materials now  not  later as most  will just  get  worse  but Kodachrome  not  as  bad  and  EVERY other   medium. 
we  got a  large  group of  Burroughs  35mm  ad  shots  on  transparency that are in the  Q   for  scanning...  pc  mini and mainframe  all across  the board.  stuff  will  definite  print up better than  scans  from magazines when I  need  a  photo   for a  display.

With old scanners, always look at what the I/O interface is, and see if it’s a model of scanner supported by VueScan. VueScan is *amazing* and produces results that are about as good as SilverFast with my Epson V850 Pro. It also keeps some vintage scanners around here running.
