[ale] OT:Recommended scanners

   Hi Scott,

I have been round and round this issue with others before and I never  
got past the fact that it was cheaper to pay a good lab to scan them  
for you.  If you spend enough money to get a pro quality scanner you  
wont' be saving any money.  Even if you have thousands negatives or  
prints and end up breaking even on the cost of the scanner you are  
still going to be left with a piece of equipment you will never use  
again.  Unless you look forward to the time spent doing favors for  
friends and relatives.

there's my .02
