Re: [genphoto] Beginner with questions.
I have an Epson Perfection 4870 Photo Pro, which does a very nice job on
slides, as well as negatives of various sizes and regular photo scans
too. However, if you are looking at one, you should be aware that while it
does an excellent job, it is VERY SLOW. I've never used a scanner as slow
as this one is. I chose this one for the versatility, as well as the
excellent software that came with it, but had I known it was going to be
this slow, I would have chosen something else.
