Question 35mm Transparency (Slides) Scanners

I have tons of Kodak Extachrome 35mm transparencies, aka slides, that I would love to scan into digital images. The cost to do this professionally is huge.

Anyone have a knowledge on home scanners, recommendations?

Bob,

Sorry you haven't gotten more response. I'm in the distant market for such a thing as well.

Wonder if Frank D sent his out or did it himself?

I had a name of one that was recommended (going to look....)

check that... somewhere along the line I *read about* these type of scanners:

Epson B11B207221 Epson Perfection V370 Color Photo Scanner (B11B207221) Scanner



does photos and 35mm slides.


you can look it up on amazon and read the reviews.... been a while since I did that.

Just read this review on the V370 that is pertinent to your search, Bob:

The V370 is part of a complete line of flatbed scanners from Epson. Unfortunately, the resolution of 4800 p.p.i. is a great deal lower than the resolution of 35mm film. This means that a great deal of information from the original image is lost in the scanning. As a result, I can not recommend this scanner for serious slide and film scanning, although it might do for copying large prints. If all you want is document copying, the less costly Epson B11B207201 Epson Perfection V37 Color Photo Scanner (B11B207201) is available. Anyone serious about digitizing their slides and film will look at the Epson B11B189011 Perfection V500 Photo Scanner or Epson B11B198011 Perfection V600 Photo Scanner. Even though they cost twice as much as the V370, they have much better resolution, are faster, and have more features. (One could also look at the feature-rich Epson B11B178011 Perfection V700 Photo Scanner, but that copier costs seven times the price of the V370.)
