Go and buy a Nikon LS2000 and a slide feeder from ebay. You will find
both for sale. You will end up paying something like $400 for both (
maybe ?) Scan your slides and then sell the scanner and  slide feeder on
ebay. You will get most of your money back, and have your slides
I did that and did not loose a penny.
Good luck

I have been recommended this list after posting a question on the yahoo
D70 mailing list, so hope you can help...

I have a collection of around 2500 slides, mostly Kodachrome (and a
handful of negative), that I would like to eventually get around to
scanning so that I have a digital archive of them all, plus this will
mean they actually get looked at a bit more often.....

I do not need them to be scanned at any fantastic resolution since they
will only be for web use and/or maybe small prints (under 7x5), since if
I want a large print, I would just use the original slide.

Also bearing in mind since turning digital I have not taken another film
photo, so once the slides are scanned the scanner will effectively be
defunct, so the less I can spend the better....  I had been thinking of
getting a flat bed scanner since that at least wouldn't become defunct,
but the quality isn't as good (for film) and I've never felt the need
for a flatbed ever anyway, so it too would probably be defunct.....

I have been thinking along the lines of the Minolta Scan Dual IV plus
Vuescan software since it gives me a RAW file. The RAW file appeals
since it is effectively the same as a 'normal' RAW file in the digital
camera sense, the basic data is there and I can return to it at any time
in the future to tweak and get the most out of it.

Any advice greatly appreciated.....

BTW I know that this will be a very onerous task taking me a few years
to complete, but the good side is that the slides aren't getting any
more numerous so an end is always in sight!
