[filmscanners] Re: Scanning old Lantern Slides



John

I have a UMax Astra 4000U  which is 1200 dpi this has an active tranny lid. 
They are about
$700 australian with lid.

Having said that I scan such slides, colour prints and 6x17 tranny's on it and 
print them to
a Polaroid 8K film printer with satisfactory results.

The high end flat bed scanners are now too over priced.

Once I looked at a Umax 3000 for scanning every thing but thats past. That was 
something
like $10,000 aust.
