You can probably find an O.K. scanner for $500.00 U.S.. I would try the
AGFA or U MAX brands. They are best. If you buy it from a university
bookstore, you might be able to get an educator's discount. Try to get the
manufacturer or vendor to throw in a tranparency adaptor for free, so you
can scan slides and negatives.
