I’m on a quest to find the simplest way of turning my old photos and slides digital.
There isn’t much that grabs my fancy. I Googled and was first drawn to the HP G4050 which looks pretty good, but apparently takes ages to scan stuff. This Braun looks like it could be quick, but it’s way out of my price range.
I then got thinking that it takes a split second to take a photo with digital camera, so why not take a photo of a slide or negative with a digital camera? Sure enough, someone’s tried this already with good results: Pete Ganzel
But that looks way too difficult for me to set up. Got to admire the guy though.
And then there’s Shot Copy, which I’m sure does the job, but somehow looks a bit funny.
So why isn’t there something that’s super fast, hi-res that I can effortlessly use to convert all my old photos with? If it exists, where is it? I’ll pay.
