    Options for scanning slides . . .


    I'm new here but "old" into photography. I've got a bunch of slides that I shot back "in the day" on my OM-1n cameras. Great images . . . but I want to get them converted to digital images.

    What are the options one has to do this? Any recommendations on high quality conversions?

    Thanks! HJ

    If you have a bunch of old ones then there are companies out there that will scan in bulks for you. If you are just going to pick a few here and there I would get an Epson flat bed scanner. There is a learning curve to scanning. A Nikon Coolscan but it's more expensive.
