I smell a scanner coming the way!
Good luck and don't forget to post something here!
I think you are right.
I have lots of old pictures (negatives) of my kids to scan, so could be killing 2 birds with 1 stone. Never scanned negatives though. So can only hope it's fool proof.
Got to say the Epson V600 looks like a very nice compromise. I think I'll wait for reviews of the Canon 9000f to come out (seems similarly priced and apparently coming out in less than a month) to decide which way to go. Seems like Epson has tradiitonally the edge on reproducing blacks, from what I read.
The camera body should only get here next week. Got the film already. Now it's a waiting game... But I'll definitely post one of my first efforts when I get it.
