If you're only talking about scanning 35mm, I highly recommend the Valoi Easy35. Works with almost any macro lens/camera combo and is a complete system. Tubes, film holder, light with diffuser. Works great and I can scan a roll of 36 in about 2 minutes.

Interesting. I wasn't impressed at all with the Valoi 360 system. Are you using Negative Lab Pro in conjunction?

This looks very much like the old Nikon ES-2 system. No one has ever given me a good answer if you can use that with the Z9 due to the lack of a mechanical shutter and typical LED light sources for film scanning, so I've never bit. This would likely have the same issue at twice the cost.

I use a pacific image primefilm xa for 35mm and a epson v700 for 120 film. I use VueScan to scan "raw" tiff files and invert using perfect color or xnview mp with a custom action. The workflow I use is with high quality capture in mind and not for bulk.

I am using Negative Lab Pro and it all works great. I canít speak to the Z9 but I have used my Sony a1 with electronic shutter without issue.
