Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner

Nora would like to scan her negatives and slides. What's a good film scanner? She hears that Magnasonic will scan every size negative around. Leo says that he's never heard of it, but it looks like they make a lot of stuff, so it may not be a reliable option. She should check out the Epson Perfection scanners.

Another option would be to use a service like Scan Cafe. They'll send her a box to fill, and then send back to them via Fedex, so it's nice and secure. Not only will they scan negatives, but they'll clean them up as well, so she'll get the best possible image.
