From Media Archivist Mike Madden: "I remember those days: shooting 35mm slides with my Nikon F4 at corporate conferences; rushing the film to a processor and three hours of E6 later, picking up 2x2 slides in plastic mounts, ready to be popped into slide carousels for a multi projector slide show that afternoon. Meanwhile I would shoot with Polaroid slide film for the last slides in the show. To this day I still feel that excitement. Daily, continuous slide film processing is long gone, but many family vacations and important moments still reside on slides in the garage or basement. Archive them before it is too late."
Preserve your valuable slides. Bring them to a professional.
There are do it yourself slide scanning devices available. If you have a large collection of slides, a do it yourself device will require a lot of time and what about the quality?
