do i need a coolscan V?

Hi, does anyone have a succinct recommendation re: film scanners?
I remember being perfectly happy, in 2001, with that era’s Coolscan. Do I really need to dig deep and get a V or 5000?
btw, optimistic pictures of city police and kids

Depends on the final use of the scan and how fast you want them done. I’ve used the Coolscan IV and it’s slower and a bit smaller resolution (if I remember) but if you’re scanning for online or newsprint it’s more than enough. I’ve even used the old CanoScan FS4000US quite a lot and it worked great for full screen online scans.

If you are scanning 35mm, I would stay away from the flatbed scanners. In my experience, it is just a passable scan. It would depend on how big of a print you would want to make from it. I would be curious to here from those with the Coolscan V how big they are printing?
