Well, that's the thing, Jules:  you've told us before how well the SF-200
works for you, and I'm envious, but still dubious about it for me.
Your post appears to mean that the SF-200 won't behave well with the "regular"
cardboard-mounted slides I get back from my lab.  So the feeder convenience
must be balanced against the trouble of mounting my own slides.
I do mount my own 120 slides, but that's much lower volume...
Can you talk a bit about machine mounting at home?  Like cost and time?
