Firebox claims USB negative scanner that they have just launched on the site is "the best currently available".

A brand new model - said to be smaller, faster and better quality than predecessors - it's described as idiot-proof.

At the touch of a button it scans 35mm negatives or slides and converts them into 5-megapixel-sized digital pics.

Users can then edit, crop and resize them using the included software ready for printing, archiving or just viewing on the big screen.

The USB negative scanner is available now for £79.95.
