My wife has a ton of negatives of some pictures she shot a long time ago. We used to have a Minolta film scanner that they no longer make and that did a great job. We recently needed to scan some actual photos so I bought a Canon CanoScan 8800F since it seemed to have a lot of positive reviews and would perform double duty of scanning negatives, slides and photos. When trying to scan negatives they keep scanning in at 1.4 inches wide no matter what settings I choose. If I tell the scanning software to scale it up the image size gets ridiculously large. For example, scaling up to an 8x10 says it's going to be over 500MB (and it turns red so I'm guessing it won't let me even if I tried) and will take a really long time to scan. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? We never had this problem with the Minolta scanner. I'm sure I'm doing something idiotic. Should I just return it for an Epson V700? We're looking at doing maybe 8x10 prints at the largest - although this is mostly for archival purposes. Thanks. EDIT: Uh oh, DPI confusion - if that's the problem I'm going to kick myself repeatedly. I'll find out later today when I get home.
