    Can you be a bit more specific in your link? Searching that site was not very helpful.

    Epson flatbeds are a good idea, My 1480 is a godsend.

    Anyone tried one of these?

    Looks like just the ticket for those of you stuck with crop frame cameras.

    I may be thick but I cannot see why a crop frame neg is useless

    Those of us who've shelled out the extra for Full Frame have to justify it somehow!:D

    Don't let it worry you. APS-C has one of Canon's best zooms in its armoury - the EF-S 17-55 F/2.8.

    You seem to lack an understanding of crop and full frame. A zoom lens cannot increase the A O V of a crop camera. All scanners will scan the full negative or tranny. I had my interest whetted talking about NIKON and MINOLTA scanners so I dug my MINOLTA dimage 3 out of the rubble. Yes it loads OK on to my Windows 7, but horrors I have thrown all my films away,except for a few odd ones. The dedicated film scanners are a waste of time My EPSON 4870 will scan 24 35mm shots in one pass. The film scanner takes a heck of a time to scan 6. The quality is very similar for both methods Usually about 350 kb. So I will just put it back to sleep again.

    What a load of Dingo's kidneys.

    A crop frame is not per se useless, but a crop frame dslr is useless with a full frame slide copier, that is the point you are missing.

    There is no such thing as a crop or full frame scanner.

    Try reading what is front of you, the word used was copier not scanner. I would suggest that there is a noticeable difference between the two items.
