I have 80 odd old family photos on kodachrome transparency slides. Used to view with a very old slide scanner projector.


Tried without much success in scanning them in.


Can anyone in Dunedin recommend a good photo conversion company? Currently looking at harvey norman...


And what were the results like?


Don't want to courier as risk to high.


Thanks.

When I had a bunch of slides to scan (several years ago), I bought a slide scanner, did all the scanning and then sold it.  Worked out much cheaper than getting them done professionally.

 

Something like this:

BTW, I recently bought a camera from this supplier and their service is excellent

I considered that option. But since there is less than 100, upwards of $400 to buy, not really worth the cost for a one time use.
