    i shot my first roll of slide film this weekend, velvia 100 and though i havent seen it yet, i know there are some great shots on there. so my question is two fold. if one doesnt have a slide scanner, and the lab cant put the slides on a cd for me, what is the best way to get them on the computer at least to just show you guys? i was just gona use my digital to take a picture of the slide. second, lets say that one of these slides is the best picture i have ever taken and i want to make a print of it? is that possible, or will i forever be doomed to projecting it?

    thanks for any help

    I dunno if there are slide copying devices for dig. cams, as there are for film cams. It's a little contraption that you attach to your normal lens on one side and the slide pops in on the other side. Face a light and take a picture of it... Pretty simple. However, as I said before, I dunno if they make such device for dig. cams.

    Slide/film scanner might be the best way.

    you can get prints made from slides, it's just a bit expensive.
