Thank you for your reply. I will look into the Scanjet 5. I would prefer a new scanner as I am nervous buying this kind of thing used, but it could be the best option.
As for using a camera as a scanner....the only digital camera I have is a canon point and shoot. Its not bad, but as a scanner I believe it will fall short. If I still had my 5dmkii this could be a good option, but when I sold that for my drum scanner I sort of abandoned shooting digital for the time being. But its an interesting thought that I will consider....doesn't seem as quick or easy to me as a properly sized flatbed...but could still do the trick.
