    I've been looking for scanners capable of scanning 35mm film. I cannot justify affording a dedicated film scanner. A flatbed with 35mm holder is probably good enough for my purposes (mostly posting photos online).

    I was previously considering an Epson 4490, but the CanoScan is cheaper, plus I happen to have a gift card for the place that is selling it, so I can get it for pretty cheap.

    Any opinions on this scanner?

    for I am too interested in getting a film scanner in the $100-$200 range.

    Thanks for the bump.

    I've been looking at a few scanners:

    - Epson 4490
    - Epson V300
    - Canon Canoscan 5600
    - Ion Slide2PC

    As for that last one, the only reason I'm considering it is because I already have a flatbed scanner that is good enough for basic tasks.

    Some opinions would be appreciated.
