    I am looking for a film scanner to index my existing negative/slide
    collection and new stuff. I don't plan on using the scanned images for
    more than small prints, if at all. Can anyone comment on the merits of
    the Benq scanner please? I know that it's a couple of years old now but
    it appears cheap (best price so far around £150) and is capable of doing
    batch jobs. Can anyone suggest alternatives as the market seems a bit
    bare at this price/resolution range.

    Thanks

    Ian

    It's a good scanner, it produces fine image quality,
    I use an Acer 2720s, same as the BenQ. However,
    to avoid a ton of hand-done corrective work in an
    image editor, I highly recommend the 2740s which
    has Digital Ice, it corrects scratches and dust for you
    via a second infra-red scan. You can get these as
    warenteed refurbs for cheaper ... here in the U. S.
    they are $350.00. Your BenQ site may have a link to
    refurbs where you are. http://www.benq.com/

    Yes I am impressed enough with the image quality
    from the 2720s scanner. The DI on the 2740s is
    not compatible with the old Kodachrome slide films.

    Sincerely,
