Re: Film scanner for home use?

AVOID the HP4890! It cannot scan B&W negs; defaults to color (RED), then make them all grayscale -- fergedaboudit! The software is a kludge. I had the HP Photosmart S28, a dedicated neg scanner. Great until I could no longer calibrate it <sigh>.

The HP 4890 has too many features! Great for pix scans, but NG for negs. And that is what I need. Suggestion? Wanna buy a "new" HP 4890????

Re: Film scanner for home use?

this is probably a bit late for you, bodegg, but here's a link to the one i first got. it's relatively inexpensive and does a good job. Staples was even carrying them for a while. not sure if they still are or not: http://www.scanace.com/en/product/1800u.php
