    Does anyone here have a scanner they can recommend that does a good job on slides? I was reading some reviews today and one of them rated the Canon 8600F as good, but doesn't mention anything about use with Macs.

    Thanks!

    Nikon makes some very nice film scanners. I use one weekly. Try B&H Photo in NY.

    Epson 4490 is pretty good. I like the scanner software better than Canon. It even had ICE to remove dust and scratches. It works much better than a software based removal tool. Otherwise, Epson V200 would be good enough.

    Mac & scanners

    i'll be buying a MBP 17 next month (w/leopard), and i've been looking at the microtec scanmaker i900, the epson perfection V700 and the canon 8800F; all can deal 12 slides at a time and get decent reviews...

    any comments or suggestions, especially re. the pairing w/the MBP i intend to buy?

    thanks, karl:confused:
