    It is a good job I am retired - probably 2 mins per single neg scan

    Scanners have always been temperamental things

    Happy with the results, (so far - only done about 15 negs)

    Using full Auto mode at the moment - seems OK

    I bought the V350 - cheap - £110 - seems very good quality - It's an Epson - and it has a dedicated 35mm negative feeder

    Cons: - it is slow - but what the heck for the money it has got to be good value - I'll post a few scans when I find a "good one"

    been scanning a few negatives

    BUT I have just scanned a small B & W positive of my parents wedding some 65 years ago - immediately after the war, (tough times)

    I am really pleased - it was a small, (5" x 3"), dark wedding photo to begin with - (one of the 2 that I have)

    The Epson and LR 3 worked wonders - I just wanted to share it

    here is the original

    it was not bad, but it was small and "yellowing"

    Just a quick B & W scan - then Lightroom which did good work, plus I used the "new healing brush" in PS to get rid of the dust "marks"

    I'll post some neg scans as I work through them

    Looking at the photo again - the guy on the extreme right, (my grandmothers brother), has only one arm - I hardly met him but seeing the photo again reminded me of it - he lost it in a mining accident in the mid forties.
