I have thousands of slides I want to scan to digital and have been putting off this monumental task for years.
A couple years ago I got a screaming deal on a Canon CanoScan FS 4000US dedicated slide and film scanner.
What I was wondering is - Has anyone got any experience with this unit. Do you know if it is a good choices for scanning slides?
It came with the original receipt and somebody paid $1200. for this thing in November 2001.
I could save and spring for a better unit if the results will be drastically different but I thought I would ask for input here.
For now all I want is to get them to digital in a good quality scan. I'm going to save them as JPEG's rather than RAW or some other more editable format. If I start PP'ing every picture, I won't get done before I die! I can always rescan the important ones if I want to do some serious PP.
(hope I have this in the right forum)
