    Most modern printers come with them built in, but there are several ones on amazon for under £100. This one looks good, but I'm no expert.

    I went the printer route too, it can be so much cheaper to buy a Multi Function Device than a dedicated scanner, as I found when looking for one.

    The 35MM film part requires a better scanner and you do need to keep the negatives flat.
