    I have dug out a few old frames of velvia that I would like to have scanned at high res and put on cd/dvd. I have about 10-15 frames. Does anyone know of a good company to use thats reasonably priced. I have searched the forums but there doesn't seem to be much info. any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Cheers,

    Andy.

    It's be worth trying your local pro lab. The local one to me does very high res scans, so I'd check any in your local area to see if they do a similar service.

    Cheers for the reply - I have already checked my local city (Bath) and there is a Jessops - don't do it,and a few smaller camera shops who gave me a "negatory good buddy" not the answer I was looking for.... Sad

    Try randkphotographic in Truro, I have just had a batch of 35mm trannies scanned by them and the service was first class, as were the scans. Got their contact details from the Alamy website.

    Website is www.randkphotographic.co.uk

    Hope this helps

    If you're in Bath, try redcliff labs in Bristol, they do scans of transparencies for us all the time and are pretty good.

    have you not got a friend
    who has a epsom photo perfect 3490.
    they have a scanning for slides built in.
    they only cost about 70 brand new also
    they do all the normal scanning as well.
    the epsom gives very good results.
