Does anyone use dedicated film scanners anymore? I have a Minolta
Dimage Scan Elite that I no longer use and just wondered if there's
still any 'value' to it. It looks and works great and is complete
with both slide and film carriers, user manual, CD, AND a PCI SCSI
card. I hate to just 'toss' it...


It's definitely worth something. Take the plunge and sell it on eBay.

Damn. Wish you would have posted this sooner.

I recently ordered this:
http://www.hammacher.com/publish/740...promo=homepage
It's on backorder.

I plan to use it to scan my slides and then re-sell it on eBay. Dunno
how good it is, but I have Photoshop 7 and can tweak the resulting
images. Once I'm done with the project, I'll have no further use for
it.

I was going to buy a scanner with slide copying ability, but I have a
good scanner and re-selling a scanner is a problem. Shipping it would
be a bear.

Drop me an email, and if H-M doesn't come through maybe we can work
something out. I guess you're near Orlando.

I'm sure Ted intended to, and it would fetch enough to be worth the effort.
He and I have been email buddies for years, and I suggested he post here but
not to publicise an eBay auction, as it might lead to a Spam complaint.

However, it looks like he and Tony Cooper might come to some arrangement,
and that is good to see - both parties win. RPD is good like that!

Incidentally, Ted *gave* me his old Nikon LS1000 scanner some years ago, and
I have always been grateful for that. From memory, the postage to Australia
was around $35 US.

The replies tell you a lot.

There are literally thousands of photographers with slides and negatives
taken in the fifties and sixties who want to digitise them.

Put it on E-Bay, but not before you have used E-Bay to find out what such
devices are fetching, you will be pleasantly surprised! Some of the better
film scanners fetch over $1000.


Dennis.
