Best scanner for Linux users

Hello all,

I have been shooting film for a fair time now. I send my films to a lab but am finding the running costs a bit expensive. One obvious way of saving is to process and scan my own films....

Thanks for your concern, Mike!:) Actually I can make phone calls very cheaply to the UK but I still intend to try your other suggestion first (i.e. reusing the film manufacturers' cassettes).:)

Many thanks, Alex. I seem to have fixed it by applying some pressure, pushing the edge of the mirror, when in its "UP" position, away from the lens mount. So you were right! Please see my response to...

Blimey! This has really shocked me. It's like being time-warped back to 1970 when the only camera I had was a Zenith E.
