Scanner for negatives to disc

  Graham. 17:53 11 Feb 09

A friend has lots of negatives he wishes to transfer to DVD. Any advice, please?

If he has 'lots' then it would be best to send them to a photo lab. Negative/slide scanners are slow beasties especially if he has to adjust the size every so often.

That has a 'Light in Lid' fitting
take a look at the Epson Perfection series

The other issue likely to rear it's head is dust and scratches.

You'll need some good software to remove these and retain detail in the file.

Looks like the Epson Perfection V700 or V750. Only question I have - will they and the bundled software work on Vista?

V700 and V750 are expensive professional scanners.
The V200 is a very good scanner that gives excellent results on negatives and transparencies.
All work on Vista.

Are the ones that are regularly offered in the 'Readers Offers' panel of the press and are not a very good buy technically apart from being dedicated to transparency/negative use only use.
I have seen work from 3 example and in each case advied the owner to return them as 'not fit'

I've passed your recommendations on. Could be the Epson Perfection V300 offers the best value.

Stuartli, thanks, I did search, honest.

I've never suggested you didn't...:-)

It was a few days ago and, as I had posted to it, knew it was a similar query.
