Scanner Options

Fri Jun 06, 2003 4:26 am

Hey guys,

I've been into photography for about a year now, and I feel that I have a few shots with a chance of being uploaded. But, I have one big problem in the way. I don't have a scanner, and I don't the have the money for one. The scanners I've seen(Coolscan, etc) are up the the thousands! Are there good scanners within a reasonable price range I can buy? Also, I was wondering if you can take slides into photography shops and they can scan them on to for you. I've thought about this, but I'm guessing the price would rack up pretty quick. Thanks in advance!  Smile

You can get a very nice slide scanner for about $300.00 or so...Check this link out to the Minolta Dimage Dual Scan III from B&H photo in New York. (Very good to deal with by the way...) Many people here who shoot slides use this scanner with great results. (I have the Dual II)

They have lots of other scanners from cheap to thousands.  Smile

As Tony said the Scan Duall III is probably a good bet for you:
