I have very good results scanning slides with a Polaroid SprintScan 35. I
think it has been upgrade since I got mine a few years ago. Back then it
cost $900. Our labs use a Kodak one that people are happy with but is a
little less versitile. I can with great care get a medium format
transparency into mine. The Kodak holder is such that it is not an option.
I also have a transparency adapter on my AGFA DuoSCan T1200 flatbed that is
basically useless except for extremely low quality work. If you want
quality I would stay away from any flat bed adapter and get a dedicated
slide scanner. however other may have a different opionion. gwen miller
