Scanners

Does anyone have any recommendations for a good value for money scanner.

I need to scan in some old photographs for a project Iím working on, but wonít have a great deal of use for it very often afterwards, so donít want to spend too much.
I do however need to recreate the photographs digitally in at least 300dpi.

thanks

Nasher.

They are much of a muchness - just don't go for an all in 1 type - printer/scanner teasmaid type thing.

Oh and don't go for wireless either!!!

Epson or Canon will be pretty good along with HP.

Thing are so much easier these days with USB - remember the old pseudo SCSI things that conflicted with everything no matter what?

I think any of the Canon scanners are good. I bought the Canoscan LIDE 200 a few months back for about £50 and am very pleased with it.

Thanks, I'll have a look at them.

Nasher, I've got a half decent Cannon one sat here - let me know if you want to borrow it - I hardly ever use it!

Thanks very much Tim.

However I think I'll buy one of the Canoscan LIDE 200s suggested by Gibbo500. Ta Gibbo

Mrs Nasher has decided it would be useful for her school work(She's a teacher) and I never pass up the chance to buy something she has actually agreed to.
