Hi Jos

I've actually got a slide scanner (and it's a Canon...!) - CanoScan 2700Fwhich isn't doing anything at the minute. From my experience I wouldn't say that it was particularly quick and not even a bit fiddly but then I'm not comparing it with scanning with a normal scanner. It still does them one at a time but all the feeding etc is motorised (or you can also scan neg strips). It needs a scsi port to operate but since it's currently unused so is the (adaptec) scsi card that I use with it. I've got the software but this was for Win9x but I've downloaded the updates for XP. Get in touch if you think it'd be useful.
