35m Photo Transfer

Does anyone know of an MFD that supports direct photo transfer from 35mm slides to printer or PC.

My ignorance, what is an MFD ?
If it's any interest I bought a Canon Lide 80 nearly a year back. Had to extract film from glass to do slides, then it only digitised one at a time. My son thought it great but I hadn't the patience.

Couple of months ago I bought a Dimage Scan Dual IV. Put several slides in carrier, set it off and I go back later when the motor has advanced them through. More my style.

For the Canon I paid just over £100. The Dimage was twice as much and I wish I'd bought it before the Canon, ...latter still has its uses, though.

MFD = Multi Function Device (typically Scanner, Printer, Photocopier)

Sadly not aware of any that offer 35mm photo transfer.

Wishful thinking here sir Red though Epson might -just. The Rez spec requirements for slide transfer are a bit on the high side for a MFD -would make em uneconomic I guess, but now I've said it- you never know .
One will be announced the week after you have paid quids for the dedicated slide scanner.

I use an HP ScanJet 3970 (about £90.00) for both slides and colour negatives.

It has a holder for 2 negatives or 1 masked slide.

With the software provided you can print directly, or do what I do, clean up the pics in a photo editor first.

It also converts your negatives into prints automatically.

A bit tedious doing 1 slide at a time, but the price was right for me, and I'm retired so what's a little time.

Thanks Sir Rad. I'm hopeless with short forms. Other day I felt a chump after someone 'at the LSE' turned out to be from the London Stock Exchange. I'd read it as London School of Economics.

I'll tell my SAK it's an MFD.

It will cost your benefactor only 300 smackers

Although this thread appears to be resolved, even without any feedback from the originator acowgal.

A better solution is a dedicated film scanner. I have the primefilm negative and slide scanner from Jessops at £99.90 an awful lot cheaper than the 300 smackers that jack is talking about.
