I agree with Gail.
I use a dedicated Nikon 35mm scanner for work. I have at home one too!
Canon's is just as good.....cheaper, I recall.
However,  at home I tend to use my Epson Perfection 4870 flatbed scanner for 
most of my non-essential 35mm conversions.
 Sure, it has a much bigger footprint but it does transmitted/reflective 
scans. I used to be a Umax fan but no longer.
NB: a good image processing software app is very important, as Gail pointed 
Imho, one needs to buy Adobe's Photoshop, if you are "professionally 
For home use, Adobe's "Elements" is excellent...so is the free Irfanview.
In fact , I use Irfanview for many image resizings.
Great respect for The Man behind "Irfanview".
