I am looking into scanning my collection of slides and family albums so that they may be stored (and copied) on DVDs enabling them to be viewed on the TV as opposed to digging out the projector. I have past experience of scanning small numbers using a flatbed scanner - but it was interminably slow and a very labour intensive process. I am not in the market for the top end equipment that load slides from a magazine, but I have seen scanners at the high end of the amateur range that have the ability to scan batches of slides at a time and might therefore be a possibility. One such scanner that has been well reviewed is the Epson Perfection V850 Pro, but the website states that it is not 'approved' for Kodachrome! My slides consist of a number of makes including Agfa, Perutz and Kodachrome - so I am looking for anyone with experience of this or similar scanners who may be able to advise what the issues are - and if indeed these scanners do handle Kodachrome. Any advice or suggestions would be most welcome, as in most respects this scanner looks like it would do an excellent job even though it is a bit pricey. I am really hoping at this price to find something that will handle all of the various formats I have - including some large format negatives.
