    Whilst I make it a general rule to want to disagree with KR...

    His basic premise is correct except I think he's unduely pessimistic.

    I did smile when he said scanner manufacturers lie. He got that bit dead on at least.

    Slides to go?

    Hey Dread...

    Love the 48-215 Holden. Ahhh, those were the days LOL.



    Have read Mr. Rockwell's thoughts on scanning. I also think he's a bit cynical about the whole thing too. And I think he brushes off too easily the cost factor in getting someone else to do it (present company excepted ).

    He says he's happy to pay someone else 65 per slide, but with his theoretical collection of 3000 slides that works out to nearly two grand's worth! Which quite frankly I don't have.

    Cheers

    Scanning them can honestly be fun anyway.

    I only suggest my service to those with limited time, excessive quantities of money or technophobes. When people don't fit at least 1 of those 3 criteria then they're not potential customers.

    Dread Pirate Roberts - How can we get in touch with you in Adelaide - I have some slides that need to be scanned - I actually live in the US but my brother is in Adelaide and he has all the slides. I can't find another service on-line!

    I've sent my details to your private mail.

    In case you're not familiar with this site then you can find your private messages link near the top right corner of the webpage.

    Hey Beowulff, how is the scanning going? How well did the slides survive the riggors of time?
