Does anyone have a negative scanner?
Can someone recommend me a good one for around £50 please?
the one i have needed an 'SCSI PCI Card' too. a flatbed scanner with a negative holder might be another option. like the http://www.ebay.co.uk/bhp/epson-v500 but thats a bit more expensive. I think you can scan like 6 or 12 frames at a time though.
I gave up on scanning myself cause i would look up and 5 hours would have gone by. I would probably start again to save the cash if I could scan £medium format£ with a flatbead scanner though. a flatbed scanner like the epson v500 would be able to do both medium format, 35mm and maybe even sheet film? i dunno they have all sorts of film holders
You can get one though. 7dayshop often has some good cheap photog gear.
But I mean it's only OK. I wouldn't expect massive prints from it and it's proper slow to do a whole film.
I'd go on ebay, I'm sure you could pick that up for 50.
