After downloading several apps that make pictures look "vintage" I decided to dig out the old 35mm cam. It's an old Miranda. It takes great pictures even though one of the dials is busted and I can't change the shutter speed. Luckily it's set on a half decent setting (not sure which speed) and it takes great photos in good light.
Anyway, I want to buy a decent neg scanner. I know nothing about this stuff. Will $200-$300 do the trick? Any ideas?

yep-give or take, I suppose.....
bear in mind that the less expensive scanners will do 35 mm negs and positives, maybe slides, but that's about all-and you'll have to load them in as a strip-no biggie, though
the software should let you do multiple pictures at once, then you can tweak ém one by one, at least I hope so.. more money will get you a bigger scan size, good for 4" by 5"
(Brownie) size negs and of course more resolution ( if you should need that)
That's all I really have on that--I used an old, old Epson 1200, and I had to do each neg
one at a time...luckily I had lots of time and patience....which you do need...
If you were concerned about space and wanted it 'quick n'dirty' i think Optex makes something up that alley, but if not-the usual makers of flatbed scanners will work fine
