Rather than using a flatbed scanner with film scanning capabilities - 
like Epson Perfection Photo - I prefer to use a dedicated film & dias 
scanner. In fact, even a cheap one produces far better results and is 
*much* faster (it doesn't *scan* the negatives, but takes a 
high-resolution snapshot of the frames, which can then be copied to a 
computer via USB - no software needed).

This one will set you back like $100:
