Is there a scanner on the market that will scan and copy 35mm colour tranparencies. and nothing else?

I have 2000+ framed transparencies, a Canon 4200F scanner, and Adobe Photoshop Elements 4. I haven't used the 4200F to scan and copy transparencies even though I bought it on the recommendation that it will do a fine job.

Yes, I know that I should give it a go, but I'm wondering if there is a better machine.

Hi whataplava!

As long as the one that you have will scan transparencies, you should be fine. You can fine tune the adjustments on it to get a better quality and a higher resolution image, which will take longer but will yeild better results.

TBH I wouldn't spend the money on a specialty machine for this one thing. Any scanner that has the ability to scan the things that you need should be fine. Even lower end (cheap) scanners usually have a higher setting that will allow you to make higher quality scans that are fine for all purposes. I have a cheap scanner, and when I scan pictures that I was to have printed, I just up the settings to get a higher quality scan.

Hope this helps!

Good evening stevealmighty,

I've been asking around and, yes, what you have told me ties in with what has been said elsewhere. Thanks for the advice. I'm going to use this Canon 4200F [should have done it long before now].

Best wishes. whatapalaver
