Hi everyone. I'm a beginner to photography. I'm a researcher and I gather old documents. Sometimes all I can get is the negatives from someones photos of documents. The documents are often large and handwritten and centuries old, so to see the detail and at times to clean them up to make readable for printing, I need to turn a negative into A3 size. I'm hoping you guys can advise me as to what kind of scanner I would need for this, or even specific model recommendations. What kind of resolution (dpi?) would be my requirement for example? I don't need perfect colour. My requirements would be less than a keen photographer I guess but I am hoping to restore the detail from sometimes faded script so would appreciate detail. Obviously I don't want to have to spend more money than would be necessary to accomplish that. Also I have seen some small scanners only for negatives which look quite portable. I wonder if these would be suitable or not? Being portable would certainly be useful for me though if this wouldn't be good enough I can go with a bigger one. Many thanks for any advice.
