About a year ago I began collecting slides (transparencies, negs, all sorts and sizes) for a project. With a little luck and patience, I finally have the film ready to begin. The goal is to scan them in the best quality possible. I don't want to pay $10 000, but a $99 scanner likely wouldn't get good results. Pricewise, something in the middle would be great. These slides look amazing and I want to capture them in the quality that they were photographed in, so need a scanner that can do a professional quality job. I was just wondering if anyone can recommend a scanner that would achieve this result? Second question is that many of my slides are still on the original roll of about 36 or roughly normal roll size, so would need to find a way to scan those as well, as I'd prefer not to cut them up. Thanks for any help.
