I have about 100 slides (35mm) that I would like to digitalize and need some advice on the cost effectiveness of buying a slide scanner or using an online/ main street scanning service. When the slides are converted I can not see that I would have any more use for a scanner but are any of the scanning services any good? Any advice?
Quiet lifes post is a good price but the satisfaction and contro lover doing your own is very rewarding notwithstanding the cost snd time difference.I use an epson with inbuilt filmscanner and the results have been well worth it .Even comparing my work (no Expert ) to the original boots did years ago found Boots had a habit of cropping a bit for no good reason
Thanks everybody. The general opinion seems to be - buy a slide scanner. I also like the idea of having some control over the scanning process so i will look at a few reviews and go for one. I can always put it on Ebay when I'm done!
There has been in the daily/week end press special offers of a dedicated slide scanner from time to time. I picked these examples up on E-bay click here Asl if you have a digital camera- Then Google[bless it] comes up with click here Good luck
