Epson Perfection V600

Percy wants to know if there's a way to scan negatives with an Epson printer. Leo says not the Fast Photo printer. It has a sheet feeder that you can stack photos into and scan, but negatives require different hardware. You can bounce light off a print and reflect it, but in order to scan negatives, you have to shine the light through the negative into the camera.

The Epson Perfection scanner may be able to do it, as it has lights on both sides. They aren't cheap, though. ScooterX says the Epson Perfection V600 is designed to do slides and negatives.
