Is it really worth it getting a dedicated film scanner?

    Is a decent flatbed scanner, in most cases, quite suitable for scanning

    Any flatbed scanner recommendations?

    I don't spend more than say £60!!

    I'm only dealing with 35mm film, and 110 film. I suppose also prints no
    bigger than 6"x4".

    I was looking at HP Scanjet 3800

    You could get a basic 35mm film scanner easily for £60.A quick search on
    ebay shows quite a few for less than that.
    The results from even the most basic film scanner will be vastly better
    than using a flatbed.

    I've seen an Epson 3490 Photo neg and slide scanner, but I don't know
    anything about it.
