Find an old HP 5370C scanner with an "Active Matrix" adapter. They are absolutely wonderfull converting negatives to Digital. The adapter shines light thru the negative and the scanner is adjusted to scan that light. You can scan severl negatives at a time (strips) or one at a time. I don't have an example to show you, but the quality of the scan is really good. Cool
