This problem was addressed last year but the response was not good.
I require a scanner which has a built in adaptor for 35mm colour slides and various size old black and white negatives. Can anyone help please.

I have an 'Epson Perfection 1660 Photo' scanner which has an adapter for scanning 35mm slides and 35mm negative film. Excellent results but it doesn't accept larger sizes of negatives.

I sold this to a very young old lady of 82 years whose hobby is photography that she exhibits successfully. It is the Scanwit scanner for slides and negatives. I have used it myself.

I'm very pleased with the Scanwit 2720.
However, it only accepts 35mm negatives and slides.
The later model, 2740, now removes dust and other blemishes which can be a problem.

Using a flatbed scanner with a built-in adapter means you are limited to the resolution of the scanner.

A proper film scanner has resolution capabilities of 2,000 plus, equalling the ability of film to record images.

Morgan Computers sells the (refurbished) Minolta Dimage scanner and Jessops also have a range.

Gakeitse,

Try this link. Do not know what this one is like.

Do have an Acer with Tranny adapter, forerunner of the Benq trademark. The results were ok with neg, tranny and 6x4cm. Would take up to 6x4".

However as Stuarti said above, the results from dedicated scanner are far superior.

click here for a new Minolta Dimage Scan Dual II at Morgan, but it only does 35mm

I use the Dimâge Scan Dual II and highly recommend it. But as Belatucadrus says, it only does 35 mm. For a bit more, the new Dimâge Scan Dual III has a few more options, but still only handles 35 mm. The III comes with Photoshop Elements, the II with Photoshop Limited Edition.

I have a Jenoptik film scanner. You can have for £20 plus the delivery charge.

Again it will only accept 35mm film and 35mm transparencies.
