    A few questions concerning scanning...

    How much would you have to pay (roughly) for a scanner that will convert negatives into a digital image roughly equivalent of a good digital camera?

    Is flatbed a realistic option, or are negative scanners the way to go?

    Hi Charlie,

    Definitely a dedicated film scanner! That's the best way to scan negatives/slides. I bought recently a film scanner made by Plustek and I'm totally blown away by its quality. It's called OpticFilm 7200 and I purchased it from http://www.tigerdirect.com

    I have to agree that a dedicated film scanner is much better. A flatbed just doesn't give the quality your looking for.
