Flatbed scanning can be slow and tedious depending on the resolution of the scan but also is worth the time for big enlargements. Expect anywhere from 10 minutes to 1.5 hrs to scan a whole 36 exp roll of 35mm film depending on quality. We recommend a small (1200dpi to 2400dpi) scan of whole rolls then a larger scan of select individual frames. Our scanner scans up to 9800dpi.
