    Hi guys...

    and thanks for the feedback...
    > What sort of budget?
    I'm not really sure - I'll only be using the scanner to convert rolls of
    35mm black & white archive film (from the NASM in the US) onto
    Cd-Rom... not much else...

    Thanks for the confirmation. I've already got a Canon N1240U flatbed
    scanner and fully appreciate its limitations with regards film transfer...

    Thanks for the suggestion - one question though, can this read from a roll
    of 35mm film, or am I going to have to cut the film into smaller strips?

    Thanks again for the input,

    Pete
