- Hi Dennis, hi Nick
Like with digital cameras, there are scanners for all kinds of prices and purposes.
First, you should decide what you want to do with the digitized slides. Is it only for archiving purposes or for watching them on screen? Or do you think you might want to have them printed on paper at some time and if so in what size? Do you want to be able to make adjustments (e.g. colour settings) or scan everything automatically with no chance of intervention? Etc.
What I would then do, is take a couple of slides (some lighter some darker, etc) and test the scanner before buying it.
