After shooting about 460 slides of my wonderful trip to Thailand and
Nepal, I was trying to figure out how to send copies of my slides to
my friends. Trying to scan all these slides myself was a task I was
not prepared to take on. Therefore, I began the hunt for a good
company send all my slides to disk. I am very pleased to report
that I found somebody who was caring, understood my need for clean
scans and did this in absolutely record time.

They will do small jobs and large ones.
They will also work out a price for Orchid Members. So if you have
slides hanging around and want to get them professionally scanned, I
recommend these guys.

Has anyone used the Nikon 5400 slide adapter? It is one of the
reasons I am thinking of buying one of these cameras, but I haven’t
seen one, or spoken with anyone who has used one. My idea was to use
this system to “photograph” my old slides in whatever resolution I
like. I concluded that the system would be worth it if I converted
about 200 slides, though actually, I doubt I really need to convert
more than a few dozen. So perhaps it’s just a rational for getting
the camera, which seems pretty fabulous. I’d appreciate reviews of
the camera itself, too.
I have the slide adapter, and use it on my Nikon 990. For my needs
it’s worked great. I’ve had professional slides taken, and don’t
have a slide scanner. I wanted them on my computer for emailing,
postcards, etc. I feel the quality was good, you have to play with
how much light you let through. I shot them outside on a slightly
cloudy day. Through a window in your house works too. Lisa
