I'm not in the same class as most of the UW photographers on this board (my camera, the Sea&Sea MX-5, says it all). I wanted to scan some UW slides into images and figured it would cost around $200 at a camera shop, so I found a scanner which included software for $189 and am pleasantly surprised with what I've gotten. Can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, but the images aren't too shabby and it scans fairly fast.

Plustek OpticFilm 7200 Film Scanner...examples are on the following link. Had strobe problems, so a lot came out under exposed.
