Scanning Slides to Computer
Cross-post from Photography forum:
Hi - a while back I learned some information here about scanning thousands of slides. A Canon CanoScan 8800F Color Film/Negative/Photo Scanner (2168B002) was recommended. I'm sorry to say that I didn't act at that time, but I'm now ready to move forward.
Here's what I've got. Probably ~10,000 - 15,000 35mm slides - taken by my Dad over his lifetime. I've looked thru most of them and determined what I want to save. I want to put them on the computer and discard the actual slides.
I've been to both Staples and Office Max and all they have are printers/scanners/faxes that will maybe scan slides. I don't need a new printer. I just need a way to scan slides in the best way possible and organize them on my computer. My purpose for this post is to ask if the item above, the Canon CanoScan,is still the right solution for me or if someone has a different product recommendation.
