I haven't made it to San Bernardino campus yet, but hope to do so in the immediate future. I have joined the Redlands Camera Club and it is a wonderful group of people. I want to convert my 35 negatives to digital. Do you recommend a particular scanner? When it scans, does it render a photo on the computer or just the negative? Is one brand better for Black and White, which is what I have tons of? Thanks for any information. Michael K.
Hi Michael, A good Nikon scanner is the Coolscan and will do color and b/w and the image appears on your screen. It does nothing to your original negative. Freestyle has the Coolscan V ED for $599. The Konica Dual IV is good too and costs around $300. Good luck,
