Which scanner is best?

Posted by pinkcarnation (My Page) on

I am thinking about buying a scanner for slides/negatives but I am not sure what brand would be best or what quality to invest in. I have a new Canon MP-600 all-in-one which works great but it doesn't do slides and negatives. I know there are a lot of companies that do digital scanning for a fee, but I have a large number of old negatives and not all of them are 35mm which is the size most of the places do. On the one hand, the cost of professional digitizing could get pricey, and on the other, I won't need the scanner after the job is done, because I use a digital camera now! Any thoughts or ideas about what I should do? TIA :)
