I have about 300+ or more, maybe about 10 rolls of 36 frame slides, & have many more negatives, don't know exactly, about 50 + or more rolls of 24 & 36 frame 35mm negatives.
I have kept these in zippered 3 ring notebooks, slides & negatives are in pages for slides & negatives.
I looked at another thread in this section, & Plustek scanners were suggested.
I have also been cruising ebay
looking at Nikon slide & negative scanners, as well as the plustek slide & negative scanners.
The Nikon ones are expensive, & they do not seem to be compatible with modern oses on mac or windows, some connected through SCSI, I would need at least USB.
The plustek ones seem to be a little less expensive & more compatible with modern oses.
Plustek has the i varieties, which have infrared dust removal, and cost much more, than the ones without.
It seems for this job a dedicated unit would be best, as I want to do this one time if possible, & not have to go back & rescan.
I would like to keep the cost for a unit under $600.00
what settings would be best? alot of these say 7200 dpi, that is alot, I would like the scans to be print quality, to be able to make at least 8 x 10 inch prints or a bit bigger.
