    Looking to buy a Canon 9000F or Epson V600. I read the reviews on here but am wondering if it is critical getting a higher dpi in a scanner. If that is even necessary. I am leaning towards the Epson V600 due to all the great reviews I heard, the ICE software but Canon seems to scan a little better. These are the two models I decided on but not sure which brand to go with. Does the higher resolution really make a difference in the scans? These are mostly for pics, but do have tons of negatives and some slides. Just want a fast, good, reliable scanner to capture both old black and whites, old family photos and more recent ones too. Have photoshop, so will mostly edit with that but am open to a better editor that comes with the scanner.

    -- EPSON V600: Optical Resolution: 6400 dpi. Hardware Resolution: 6400 x 9600 dpi . Maximum Resolution: 12,800 x 12,800 dpi. -- CANON 9000F: Optical Resolution: 9600 dpi. Hardware Resolution: 9600 x 9600 dpi . Maximum Resolution: 19,200 x 19,200 dpi

    Any suggestions? Any experiences with either of these brands or models?
