    I need to get an all-in-one printer/scanner which also scans slides and negatives... can anyone recommend a good one which works well with Leopard...?

    Thanks!

    I don't know of any all in one solutions that scan negs or slides.
    Epson has a few moderately priced scanners that have negative & slide scanning options for less than 600.00.

    I have a epson rx500 it has built in tray for 35mm sildes and negatives. Works very good. Bought it 2 years ago for 250. I think epson still has a few models with this feature, not sure. Film has gone out the door so fast in the last few years.

    All in ones, unless it's the very expensive ones, do everything medicore, because people typically look for a list of features and low price, not quality of scans, quality of print, cost of media, etc.

    I understand there's a compromise but since I can't spend an infinite amount of money I'm willing to trade off some functions for cost.

    Canon say the only one they make which does slides & negs is the Pixma MP970. Does anyone else have it- and if so do you like it? (And does it work with Leopard??).
