Arnie from Palm Springs, CA

Arnie has a bunch of slides that he wants to digitize. Is there something that will take a carousel tray and one by one feed the slide and scan it?

Not only is his time worth something, but they'll take the time to clean them up and remove dust. If it's an issue of cost, remember that he'd be buying an apparatus and spending the time. In the end, he's probably paying just as much.

Neil from San Diego, CA

Neil has a ton of family photographs that he'd like to digitize and share with the family, but he's not very computer literate. That's why Leo says to get a service to do it for him. Or he could get a computer and a negative and slide scanner. The Epson V600 Photo Scanner can do it, and it's $229. He'll want one that does 600 DPI or better and does negatives, slides, and prints.
