Got to agree with your comments concerning how much detail is captured from the "Specifications" given. Well done Dave.

A possibly daft question: did you have to take the slide out of its frame to scan it? I guess that would depend on the scanner...

no. I have a Plustek OpticFilm 7600. A German make. It has two holders which slot thru the machine, one for a strip of neg or transparencies the other for mounted slides. Clever machine. It does a separate infrared pass which enables its software to do automatic dust and scratch removal. Quite effective except for the ultra small stuff, which for all practical purposes doesnt matter.

Thanks, David... Have some of my dad's slides lying around (and the last roll of Kodachrome in the fridge), so looking into some scanning options. The info much appreciated.

theverbiage, here's another golden oldie from the scanner for your perusal. I think you'll like this one.
