Default Negative Scanner

I don't think I have many photo's in the old style, but might get one of these things anyway at only 60 -

Digital cameras have all but seen off traditional film-based photography and most of us are snapping away using pixels rather than silver halide. For those who were around before this great new age, though or still prefer the feel of film, there's likely to be a box in the attic or store cupboard full of negatives and slides. To get these images into your PC, you need a film and slide scanner.
It scans negatives in at 5 mega pixels, which is good enough for most purposes, probably give a decent enough A4 print if you wanted.

This seems a good price too, its 75 on eBuyer. You could probably even make some of the money back, offering to digitize old film for a pound a time

I got the Epson Stylus RX620 witch has a built in Negative Scanner, although never tried i should really give it a test.

I got it mainly due to the scaner as we have alot of old family photos that are damaged and still have the original negatives.

I used to use a Nikon Coolscan one years ago. At around 400 though probably a bit more than your wanting to pay.

I have the canoscan 4200f. Not to bad, it has an adapter for negatives. Average price 70 quid.

If anyone gets the one I posted about, could they upload a full sized scan, so we get an idea of how good it is?
