With Apple's recent rollout of their new iMac line, I have been considering upgrading my 2011 computer to something more modern.
However, I know that my scanner, Epson V500, doesn't work with macOS Big Sur as of May 2021* (I have tried on another computer running Big Sur) - and what good would a new computer be if I can't scan pictures with it?
So upgrading computers would also mean having to purchase a new scanner.
I have been looking for articles comparing currently available scanners that would be able to scan the formats I shoot - 110, 16mm, 35mm half-frame, 35mm, 120, and 6x10, and have been struggling to find a review that wasn't mostly oriented towards 35mm film scanning or very expensive professional gear.
What are good, consumer-level film scanners that are Big Sur compatible and can scan a variety of formats?
*: The only macOS app I found for Big Sur on the Epson website is called "Easy Photo Scan" (I use "Epson Scan" on High Sierra). "Easy Photo Scan" couldn't connect to the scanner and I also got the "Cannot find a driver" error message and a "Couldn't communicate with helper application".
