    What would the price of a good negative scanner? Say one that can get about 2800 pixels across the top of a landscape photo. Or would it be cheaper to get a good photo scanner?

    I just got this scanner last month for $240.

    So far I like it a lot. My scans are usually 2400x3000 pixels (8x10 @ 300 dpi), I think you could still go bigger (haven't tried yet) and still get good results - I just like 8x10.

    8x10 prints from the scans look great, and resized for web copies look great too, of course.

    2800 pixels to a side, that's easy. My Canoscan 2710 does 3800 at under half capasity around 400dpi.

    I bought it used for around $200.
