My CanoScan FS4000US has broken down for the second time and I am thinking of scrapping it. Unfortunately new, high-resolution slide scanners are very expensive, so I will first try some of the slide scanning services.
Google search for “slide scanning service” yields these (and several thousand more):
|Fotobridge||http://www.fotobridge.com/pricing_slides.php||250 slides – $89.95 (36 cents ea) – 2000dpi|
|DigMyPics||http://www.digmypics.com/pricing.aspx||39 cents 2500 dpi; 49c 3200 dpi;69c 4000 dpi|
|ScanCafe||http://www.digmypics.com/pricing.aspx||29c – 3000 dpi|
|Doi Camera (NYC)||http://www.doicamera.com/slidescan.htm#03||49c – 1.25 based on quantity and resolution|
|Slide Scanning Pros||http://www.slidescanningpros.com/price-list.html||29c 4000dpi|
|larsen digital||http://www.slidescanning.com/slide-scanning.htm||35c – 2000dpi; 39c – 4000dpi|
I will read more and post thoughts about them as appripriate.
