Re: Basic negative scanner advice

Assuming you don't want to spend too much (how long is that string?) have a look at the Lomography website. They have a scanner designed to image negs (slides as well I think) using a mobile phone - about 50. With an iPhone it's easy to save to a PC / SD card. A number of Android phones accept a micro SD. Bang, done.
There are other solutions of course, but if this is a one off task it's wise to minimise your outlay. A cheaper option is to view the negs / slides on a tablet, or any light source, using a camera lens as a magnifying glass. Identify the candidates and get a photo lab to scan.
