I'm looking for a 35mm slide and negative scanner that can give me raw files like my camera does.
I have a ancient Polaroid SprintScan 35, and it's frustrating to use. Back then, there weren't raw files, so all the processing had to be done in the scanner, and you were stuck with whatever annoying clickety-click and dumbed down software interface the manufacturer dreamed up. This scanner is now dying.
Meanwhile here in 2016 I have software that handles raw files from my Nikon camera in a way I like. I've been trying to find a simple scanner that can give me raw files, but can't seem to find a search strategy that yields useful results. I've tried various ways of subsetting the list of scanners at NewEgg and Amazon, but I haven't found any that mention that they can produce raw files. Since the descriptions don't mention it, I haven't found a way to search for it.
What's the magic incantation to get a list of scanners that can export raw files?
Most companies tell you how wonderful the bundled software with their scanner is, but in dumbed down patronizing terms. The few that I have used I've found to be very annoying since you never know what it's really doing, and everything is a one-off manual clickety-click operation.
A good example of the equivalent in a flatbed scanner is a Canon LiDE 120. It comes with the obligatory annoying software, but that software can be set up to grab a raw file and then pass the file name on a command line to a program of your choosing. I can ignore all their fluff, and even have my software automatically launched after each scan.
The above would be great, but even just dumping a raw file to disk would be acceptable.
What do I search for or how otherwise do I find such a product?
