I've just got a Cannon scanner that has a special slide carrier. Bit time consuming but once digitised can burn to DVD.
Check out Slide Scanners for some examples. One like this special unit can do 4 at a time if you have losts to do.
Or the other option is to give it to the pros to do like this mob.

I have to agree with Crackles.

I bought a scanner that does both slides and print negatives.

It's taken me about 12 months of part time scanning and I'm about half way through the project at the moment!

It's way cheaper in my case to do it myself even factoring in the cost of the scanner.

I think I was quoted somewhere between $1.50 and $2.00 per image.

At $1.50 per slide it would have cost me about $1,600 to get one trips worth converted to digital!

Mate had some done recently for only 0.50c each .... but that was a special deal .......

The camera shops normal price was 2.00 each .....

Anyone with a lot to do would probably be better off buying one of those scanners crackles posted links to ....

They are probably the same gear the shops are using but you could work on the images to YOUR satisfaction ... based on the fact that it was a two week + wait for the job to be done .... must be a hands on ... not automated computerised task.

Yep.

One cheap and cheerful technique is to mount and illuminate your slide and take a close up with a DLSR.

But if you want a good job hi res scanning prob with noise reduction is the go.

"Invented" a slide mount that slips over the front of the lense of my digital camera. Use macro setting for a quite impressive result, helped along by any amount of work in Photoshop or similar, as our slides are old and some have deteriorated. Cheap and effective.

I have been watching the slide and negative scanners on Deals Direct. Prices vary according to daily specials or freight free days (price can be higher).

Has anyone tried these?

Thanks
