VuPoint Solutions offers the FC-C520-VP digital film and slide scanner, a device that allows you to convert your old 35 mm standard negatives and mounted sliders to digital images.
The scanning devices can be connected to your computer or you can use an SD disk to store the scans. they appear to be less fidgety then using a film adapter on normal scanners and the majority of them claim that the scan of a negative will only take a few seconds. From there you will have digital images of your previous film negatives that you didn't know what to do with. You can go on to having them printed, maybe even trying the growing trend of printing them on canvas, http://www.canadaoncanvas.com/.
Definitely worth further investigation and a possible purchase! if your interested Amazon appears to have a good selection of them and I found the reviews very helpful.
