I have been looking at film scanners on the internet and wonder if someone could explain exactly what they do and if one would be a good purchase. From what I have read it seems that you take your negatives, scan them and there you go. But I don't know if that is all there is too it. Do you need a dark room to get the negatives? Do you have to get a program that will color the photos for you? All help is appreciated. And if you could suggest any good scanners that would also help me a lot. Price $2000 or less. But Id rather pay more if it gets a much better scanner. Thank You. Also I'm sure my computer can handle it with 1.5 gigs but if not please tell me.
