I was wondering if any of you have any ideas on where to find an inexpensive film scanner. I have a ton of negs that I would like to scan, but don't want the expense of buying something that I may never use again. I appreciate your input.

Murray, I'm assuming you mean 35mm. I have had a Minolta Dimage Scan Dual III for over a year now. Definitely worth taking a look at. Unique Photo It does a great job with negatives as well as slides.


Good Luck,
Don

You might try Publishing Perfection and follow the link for scanners slide and film. They have a wide range in price, some below $300.

I use the HP Photosmart s20. It will scan 35mm negs, slides and up to 5x7 prints. It is cheap and gives a 2400 dpi scan on the negs and slides. It is usb 1, so it is slow. But it works well. Keep in mind that scanning a bunch of negatives is a LOT of work. So to reduce teh work you may want to look at a fast neg scanner and one with ICE built in to handle the dust, specks, etc. problems that most negatives have.
Good luck!
Cheers,

Sorry I failed to mention that I was looking for a 35mm scanner. I have a ton of negs. (about 35 years worth) and not all, but some, I would like to "make digital." I certainly appreciate everyone's input.

I'm seriously considering one of these as well. The minolta looks like a reasonable buy at $275. Does anyone that owns one have a full res scan from the unit? Does anyone know what maximum DPI is? Can you get a significantly better scanner for $350 or $400? Maybe what I should say is how much does it cost to get more than the 2,820 dpi and how much can you get in a desk top solution? Are there any other factors to consider? Thanks.
