    I've had a disposable camera laying around for quite a while, and I forgot what pictures my friends and I took with it. I also realized that I may be in the market for a new scanner.

    So I thought I may as well get a scanner with film scanning capabilities. Now, I've never really dealt with film myself, I've only used digital cameras, as they're much more convenient, but disposable cameras are great for when you don't want to ruin your nice $300 digital camera.

    But how would this work? Would I have to rip the disposable camera open and take out the film? Or will removing the film myself ruin it if exposed? :confused:

    The whole idea (For me) would be to save on processing, seeing if I like the picture in the first place, and editing it before I print it out. :)

    You still have to get the film developed before you can scan, even if you don't buy prints.
