You need a transparency adapter, which is a device that provides light through the negative/slide to the scanner. For cheap flatbed scanners, these are often as expensive as the scanner itself. Some of the newer higher-resolution scanners (e.g. Epson 1200U and 1600) can be bought with such adapters. You are still stuck with the scanner's resolution, so this is unlikely to be very useful for 35mm. May be a bit more so for medium format, and could possibly be pretty good for 4x5 or larger. (The Epson 1200U adapter only goes to 4x5.) Gary Hunt <firstname.lastname@example.org> - Please turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
