Scanning Slides

Originally uploaded by abdelazer

I spent most of the weekend (a couple of weekends ago now) scanning my old slides on a rented Nikon 35mm scanner (rented happily from Pro Camera Rental). Working on my photographs (mainly from my digital P+S) in Lightroom during the recent months has reawakened my interest in photography, so I’m hoping that I can find some good images to work on from older slides I’ve taken.

The scanner itself, a Nikon Coolscan IV, produced very high quality TIFFs (64MB/slide) but was quite slow. My final average scanning rate was about 20 slides an hour.
