Just a couple of quick lines to compliment visioneer. I ordered the Visoneer 9020 one touch scanner on Sunday and it was delivered on the Wednesday all for £99.99 which was the cheapest price I could find.
Well Done Visioneer

Oops I forgot to mention that the scanner came complete with all leads including the USB lead and supporting software.

Visioneer brought out a new scanner numbered 9320 and it went on sale in the USA in August; nominal price is $150, but adv at $132+local taxes. It's 48 bit, 6400x3200 dpi and USB2.0 and is available in Germany as well as US.
UK seems to be clearing the 9020's before importing the new one. I'd be pleased to hear if anyone finds here.
The 9020 is good, but is the higher spec worth waiting for?

Very interested in the positive opinions about the 9020 which I am considering buying. Has anyone used it for for negative or slide scanning? Is it possible to scan negatives larger than 35mm.

as i type I'm scanning some 35mm slides in, also used it for normal negatives and it always delivers. as a personal thing I have found 1600dpi produces very acceptable image quality while keeping the image size down and scan time quick. the paperport software that comes with I found very easy to pick up for basic scanning. if you did want to get more into the advanced editing they also supply adobe photoshop elements, admittidly not the latest edition but its bundled software - go figure! as for scanning bigger negatives to be honest I didnt know they came bigger then 35mm slides!??

Thanks to sdf for the reply. Yes I have 2.25 inch square negatives accumulated over a 20 year period I know that dedicated film scanners can cope but funds wont stretch to that.

Warbler: I have had a play with all the settings I can find and through various programs, the only way I can get the backlight to activate which is needed to scan negatives is by selecting the scan negative or scan 35mm. I fear as such that the 2.25" would not be possible. I still would say for scannning more modern sized negatives and documents etc the 9020 is top notch!

I don't know if this would work but if you took the 35mm negative scanning mask and made another one that would accomodate a 2.25" neg who knows maybe that would work. But I do not know for sure.
