    I hoping to replace my printer and separate scanner with an all in one unit. The catch is the scanner needs to be able to cope with medium format negs as the old one has a built in lightbox lid and I have about a century's worth of family photos that I'd like (one day:rolleyes:) to archive digitally. It also needs to function as a day-to-day family printer.
    So my dream machine has ...

    Good quality A4 photo printer
    Separate colour cartridges (I'm guessing CYMK)
    Flatbed scanner with built in lightbox
    Network connection (though it doesn't need wi-fi)

    I'm struggling to find one that ticks all the boxes, so I'm hoping someone round here can help.

    The all-in-one units I've seen don't have scanners for transparencies. Good luck in your search.
