    (can't find a review that answers the questions)

    Both of these apparently can scan negatives (35mm, eg) but I've been unable
    to find out if the software enables a positive end result. In other words,
    can a B&W positive be produced from scanning a B&W negative - and can a
    colour positive be produced from scanning a colour negative?

    2ndly, any reccommendations on which of the 2 Canons is preferable for use
    on the bazillion negs I have?

    Yes and the 8400F is better according to the specs, I also plan on getting
    one of these soon.

    My older 5200F can scan both positive and negative, B&W and colour.
    There are no options for colour tint with negatives, which can create
    some interesting casts. The software may have improved in the past
    couple of years to allow that.

    Make sure you buy it from a retailer where you can return it if you are
    not satisfied with the undoubtedly lower quality of a flatbed scanning
