All right, it looks like it is time to buy a scanner. The last one I had was about 4 yrs ago. So now I reach out to pick the fruit from the APUG tree of Knowledge and Experience. Of course, as always cost is an issue. I would use it to scan 35mm up 8x10 (if that is possible for good price.) I don't know if the less expensive but quality scanners scan negs up to those sizes either. I guess i am looking at a $350. Price limit. If this amount is "wack", please let me know. If there is a scanner for $50 to $100 more that you think is a good deal, let me know. Thanks for any and all information in advance.
