best scanner for 35mm negs
Jul 27, 2012

first off, I can't afford a new nikon scanner. I have my dads OLD ls-2000 but not sure if I can
1) find a SCSI card to make it work
2) if it work an OS newer than 98
3) if its quality is on par with newer stuff

so I have $500 in amazon gift cards from x-mas and I'm trying to find a scanner i can get that will work. My first choice is the epson 700. But what other options are there. I will be shooting a lot of B&W (developing it myself), color film as well as slide film, hence the neg scanner request. I also have some older 4x6 prints I'd like to scan.

So any ideas?

thanks
