    Digitize old negative films (and photo)


    I found a lot of old photos from film photography (negative + printed pictures) from my family and I would like to digitize them in order to "backup" and reproduce them.

    I looked for specific scanners and I found some like:
    - Canon CanoScan 9000F Mark II
    - Epson Perfection V370 Photo
    - Scanner Photo HP Scanjet G4050

    They achieve from 4800 to 9600 dpi (from what I learned, it should be sufficient, at least for not-too-big prints). They have special support (and I hope special software) to handle negatives in contrary to standard scanners.

    Did anybody try such scanning ? What stuff did you use ? Or did you ask a profesionnal to do it ?
    I don't mind spending 200-300 $ for a good scanner as I think it would interess a lot a people around me. If I can avoid scanning with a DSLR such as it would be better

    Thank you !
