As long as the one that you have will scan transparencies, you should be fine. You can fine tune the adjustments on it to get a better quality and a higher resolution image, which will take longer but will yeild better results.
TBH I wouldn't spend the money on a specialty machine for this one thing. Any scanner that has the ability to scan the things that you need should be fine. Even lower end (cheap) scanners usually have a higher setting that will allow you to make higher quality scans that are fine for all purposes. I have a cheap scanner, and when I scan pictures that I was to have printed, I just up the settings to get a higher quality scan.
Hope this helps!
War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.
