Hello,
Was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for a scanner. We wan't to do basically everything... Scan slides, pictures, documents, 35mm, negatives, high quality printing....

What scanner works best with Apple and can support these elements.

thanks
mark

One scanner I like is the Epson Expression 10000XL. With its large format scanning its very versatile. Epson has some other nice (less expensive) models as well that may suit your needs.

Also, you can find some reviews at these sites (and others): http://www.macreviewzone.com/html/reviews/magazine/hardware/scanners.php and http://www.macworld.com/topics/hardware/scanners/ and http://www.consumersearch.com/www/computers/scanner-reviews/

I just got the Epson 4490 with a $50 rebate it was $188. It is a letter size scanner but it does a better job than my older Epson Photo 2450 that bit the dust (more than 4 years old). I can scan everything you listed. BTW,my 2450 had a firewire interface and the 4490 is only USB, but I found no speed decrease with the USB. It takes about $50 off the price of the firewire version.

I just scanned a 35mm negative and it also surpassed the 2450's quality.
