The scanner on firstin is the same as I used, here's an example of  a slide and negative.

The negative was very poor quality (also, B&W).

PS: Both the slide and negative were in the area of 35 years old, and not stored well.

Thanks all, helpful discussion.

I don't have slides, just negatives and 6x4s, which am I better to scan if I am going to DIY (both are in good condition)

To scan from 35mm colour negs you will need a resonable high res scanner if you want to get decent results and also may run into problems with the different base layer colours of colour negative films.

With a print scanner you know what the image is meant to look like and can use a cheaper scanner. Try to get one that does batch scanning so you can place several prints on the bed at the same time and go for one with image correction software i.e dust removal and colour correction a option well worth the extra $ so you don't to have to manually correct the image later.

Cheers Paul.
