Not sure if this is an appropriate part of the forum for this, but I could not see any others...if the mods want to move this to somewhere more suitable, please do ! I am planning to buy a scanner, so as to be able to post some of the photographs I have been collecting over the years and also maybe some stuff from some old ephemera, manuals etc...and also for possible printing in magazines/books etc later too, so need good resolution for both colour and b/w. However, the range of types available is a bit daunting . Ideas from anyone with such technical experience welcome. I need one that is (a) compatible with a Mac (b) can do photos and books/paperwork too and (c) in price range maybe up to GBP150. I have been looking closely at the Canon Canoscan 5600F - anyone got one of those ?? Ta !
