    I know that there is a post already for a photo scanner but the member Vanmac seems to be looking for something a bit more pricy than me. I was hoping to pick up a decent scanner for no more than $150. I am currently doing digital photograpy but I have a lot of old negatives that I would like to be able to scan into my mac. Does anyone have any recomendations for a scanner in my meager price range? :confused:

    I don't have this scanner, but MacWorld likes it

    Hey Wordmunger.

    From what I've gathered, most of the canon scanners seem to be pretty decent.

    For you price range, you could get the :
    LiDE 500F or 8400F

    I own the 8400F and it works great. Im able to scan in negatives and slides and print out wonderful photos. It also can touch up photos. Well worth 150 for what it does.

    Thanks for your input. I have found the 8400 for as low as $123. The reviews look pretty good to. :) The only dilema now is the new ipod or a scanner! Thanks again
