[SASAG] Old negatives and film conversion ideas?

Larry Bolch's page is indeed a good resource.

I do some support work for another retired (semi) professional 
photographer, who swears by "Flextight" Scanners for large format 
negatives. They are glass-free "drum" scanners (or "virtual drum" in some 
of the models).

These scanners were developed by a company called Imacon, which was 
acquired by Hasselblad a while ago. Google "hasselblad flextight" for more 
info.
