Tech Question:Scanners : LUSENET : TB2K spinoff uncensored : One Thread

I'm starting a project at the 1st of the year compiling images to post/archive on the net for posterity,the images are from 1970-2000 and are b/w negatives,color transparancies and slides.

I have $500.00 to $800.00 to invest in this equipment,obviously the less the better,but quality is of major importance.Does anyone have recommendations for particular scanners,in the semi-pro line? I should mention that this isn't a personal project but a business/career investment.

I believe Z is quite knowledgable in this area. If I recall he posted extensively on Anita's forum on just this very subject.

Here's the link to that thread. Scroll down towards the bottom. BTW, ignore the Ferengi. He's harmless.
