BTW, there are lens attachments that will hold a slide in place for shooting with a macro lens. Check out "slide duplicators". Here's one: http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …EG/General_Bran​d_SDD.html (external link)

There are higher-quality slide duplicators that use a bellows attachment.

Can anyone recommend a company in Canada? I see that ScanCafe now accepts orders from Canada, but I'd rather avoid going through customs if I can. I remember looking companies up about a year ago and finding someone's recommendation here on potn, but can I find it now? Noooooo...

my wife just had this same thing done here in a local camera shop, approx 325 slides. It ended up costing about $290 total.

Costco will also do it, and as long as you just want them on CD (rather than DVD) they will do it locally. They would have been a bit less expensive than the camera shop, but my wife doesn't like going into Costco.

What was the final pixel resolution provided for each slide? I ask only because about 6 years ago I had photos put onto CD at time of film processing at a drugstore processor, and the files were very low resolution (640 x 430)! And a different time, with a different processing service (Fuji...I asked about the resolution first!) they were a respectable 2600 x 1700. Let the buyer beware!

All APS-C users need to be aware that the adapters for slide duplication typically assume a 24x36mm slide is being phtographed onto a 24x36mm area -- a 1:1 duplication, so they will cut off a substantial portion of the image if used on an APS-C body!
