Have just been sitting in amazement looking through Peter de Groot's old Slide copies. The quality is amazing. I don't know which scanner he is using but they do look as if they were taken yesterday with a DSLR.

The scanner I use (I scan and upload all of peter's shots) is nikon Coolscan IV. The slide itself though is what really ensures the high quality scan. Most are Kodachrome 25, which scans better than anything I have tried so far.
Hopefully I can free some time up in the future to upload some more of those 70s shots. From scan to upload it can take as much as an hour per slide, so needless to say you can't upload 50 at a time.
Anyway thanks for the kinds words, Peter will appreciate it too I'm sure.

Top quality scans that are always a pleasure to view. If only my trust HP S10 was able to produce work like this. I'm currently working through Frank's slides and uploading the odd shot that scans nicely.
Tim, send me your address and I'll send you some slides to scan for me mate!!!!! Gotta get Frank to 10,000!

Great examples of quality throughout the process. It is too easy to be complacent by thinking shortcomings in photography fundamentals can be fixed in post processing. Peter's images are wonderful to look at.

His collection is first class and the quality of his scans just spot on.
I think we know who should write an article on scanning slides for web browsing!!
Seems like Peter's equipment and workflow is just about perfect.
