Looks like there is a coupon to get an additional $20 off and free shipping.

I have an earlier version Wolverine FD2 that I'm "satisfied" with but it does not do a very good job with chromes.

http://andy-sharp.com/vintage-images has a version after mine, but before the Titan, and I think it does a better job than the model I have.

I think
https://louiefavorite.myportfolio.com/black-and-white-one was using the Epson V850.

I do not know much about this

One more option is getting a light table and then using a macro lens to copy the film and inverting in Photoshop.

->> I purchased an Epson V550 about two months ago and have been getting excellent results scanning b&w as well as color negatives from the 80's. I just checked and found it online for $160.00 and $120.00 refurbished.

Whichever scanner you get don't think that the scanner features are fully going to eliminate scratches and dust. A little time prepping negatives before scanning saves a bunch of time trying to fix things in post. If you check Youtube there are several good videos to pick up tips on the process.

->> I am now of the mindset that the best and quickest way to scan your images is by using your DSLR
