My father in Law passed away recently and he had a large collection (several hundred to a thousand) of 35mm slide / negatives as well as alarge number of 120 meduium format positive transparencies taken on his Roliflex camera. Most are B&W but there are some colour ones.

I realise this will be a big undertaking to digitise his collection. I have lloked at the Nikon scanners but the ones on Ebay are very expensive and concerned they are no longer manufactured and therefore limited option for support if it goes wrong.

 

Any advice would be welcome - have seen online suggestions of using a DSLR and a macro lens - does anyone have any experience with this approach as it sound quick once setup.

Whereabouts are you located? I have a Nikon Coolscan (they are amazing pieces of kit for this kind of task).
