I used to have a scanner.
It required lot of time and lifting/lowering of the lid to make passable digital copies of some old photos. I did it for a while with my old Gateway but it got very old. The scanner went to Silicon Heaven (Goodwill) a while ago, and I think something much better should exist.
For less than $300.
Can anyone recommend a sheetfed photo scanner that would quickly turn my old film-only pictures into hi-res images OR a service that will do it for me? Given the prices I’ve seen in my own research, I’d rather spend the money on having someone else do it.
For crying out loud, if there’s a gadget that will turn the songs on my old 80s mix tapes to mp3s, there must be a better solution for this.
