ICE does not work properly on Kodachrome either..IR -SRD does, least on my one.
If you want larger formats you have to really look at the flatbed ones V700/V750 etc, maybe even the V500.. Used the V700...they do well for MF and larger scans, but not as good for 35mm..other scanners can do better.

The old slap it on the camera can do some ok results, but won't match a proper scan. And most mini labs do frankly terrible over contrasty auto level adjusted scans, it's a complete waste for time for the serious film user.

If you want to do larger formats, then you don't have a lot of choices, bar the flatbeds, unless you want to outlay some serious cash for a top line Nikon scanner
