Canon Lide 110 for quick contact sheets only?
I currently have a Plustek (7400) for dedicated film scanning but I'm really missing the ability to produce a simple contact sheet containing all 24/36 prints to quickly eye-ball what needs a proper scan.
In an attempt to overcome this issue I'm considering buying a cheapie flatbed - in this case the canon lide 110 (cheap, compact, usb powered) - just for contact sheets. Now obviously this scanner does not have the lit cover required for scanning negs, but I have read that a piece of white paper will do if quality is not too important and I just want the full sheet for proofing.
I had considered the epson v330 - but from what I can tell while this unit has the backlit lid it will only scan a single 5-6 image strip (i.e. the backlight does not cover the whole lid) and I really want an old-school style contact sheet with all my prints on a single page.
My question is - does the use of the canon lide 110 for this purpose sound reasonable if I'm not bothered about resolution? Is there some technical reason this will not work?
Any advice here is much appreciated
