HI forum...i have mainly gone to a digital format these days but have been wanting to convert all my negatives to CD. What is the best and inexpensive negative scanner out there that does the job because once I am done scanning the negatives I plan to get rid of it.........thanks..Paul

There are scanners starting at about $90 (the Epson Perfection Photo 1650) that will scan photo negatives. The question is, how much do you want to spend, how many negatives do you want to scan, and what quality do you want to scan them at?

If you have lots, you'll want a scanner with auto-feed that does batches. That will not be cheap. At that point, I might consider taking the negatives to a professional processor to have them batched and burned to CD there. Depending on how many you've got, that might be a lot cheaper than a scanner that could do comparable quality, let alone in the same amount of time.

Alternatively you could hire it done in house if you don't want to let the negatives go, although this would cost a lot more, naturally.

I have a HP scanjet 5470c. It is now about one year old. I am very pleased with the results. The resolution is very good. I spent about $300 on it when I got it. Just my 2˘.
