    Default Slide Scanner?

    I was just going through some old slides, some going back to the 50's and was thinking it would be nice to be able to digitize some of them and post them online. I noticed there are a variety of slide/negative scanners available. Does anyone here use them? Any recommendations? Thanks...Louis

    I used one years ago. Not sure of the make or model. It was easy to use, but time consuming. I ended up taking a bunch of them to Costco and had them scan them and load them onto a DVD. Fast and the cost was less than my time was worth. Just another option for you.

    I used a Minolta Dual Scan 3 with a mac laptop for years....worked very well. You could probably find one online for cheap but matching it up to current operating systems might be a challenge....I don't know. Here's a couple typical scans:
