      so you might want to check into one so you can skip the middle man and get what
      you want, when you want it.

                Charlie:

                I use an HP PhotoSmart scanner to scan negatives, slides, and prints. When I
                bought it a few years ago, it was about $450. I do not know what the price is
                now, but it works great.

                I also have an HP flatbed scanner that I bought in the early 90's when I was
                still working on the REFLECTOR. It still does a fine job.

                  Thanks Ed
                  I have an HP 6300C flatbed, which does well, but the slide attachement (I did
                  manage do dig it up) is not very sophisticated. I did locate a nice film
                  scanner on the web for $189. The Pacific Image Primefilm scans negatives with
                  a 1800dpi resaolution. Not bad at all for under $200. Thats 2551 x 1700,
                  about the same res as a 4 megapixel camera.
                  Charlie.

                    Sounds like a good deal to me. When the HP PhotoSmart came out, there were no
                    other options. Now there are quite a few.
