Be interested to know if anyone rates this. Most of the reviews I've read about scanners in this price range have been dire.
The, "3600 dpi interpolated" doesn't bode well.

Last time I went to use my old film scanner I found I had lost the cables. Using my phones screen backlight on my all-in-one printer/scanner I got equally good results.

Yeah, I remember doing something like that with a 35mm film negative, on my first A4 scanner, just using daylight, years ago.
I seem to remember at the time the results weren't too clever, especially trying to convert the negative colour image. I dare say with the latest A4 type scanners (& the right photo software) results will be much improved.
