I've been having so much fun with my new scanner.

I got the last one in stock from Argos.......it's the Canon one.

I'm sending loads of pics that my granddad took in India during the 1st ww, to a web site about the 1/25th cyclist of London battalion.

I haven't even had a go at looking at the old slide photos of me when I was a little one.

I'll make a note of the one you have mentioned Ann.

If one of either is available at my nearest shop I'll be laughing.

Thanks :)

Actually sounds as if they both 'work' the same so it will depend on what is available when you go to get it.

The books are paper/card books with small paper photos in..........the slides are the collection that belonged to my dear old Dad........

It sounds good Gill................is it reasonably " idiot proof " as well ?..............I do like things kept simple.

Just realised what book you meant - no you need to take slides out as neg converter is a strip in the lid.

It has an extendable lid especially for books.

Thank you Gill.........can a fatish book fit inside it ?

As I cannot and wouldn't try to get the photos out of the home made books.

I need a new scanner. I want one that converts old slides as well as photos that are stuck into the home made photo albums my Grand dad made.
Has anyone got a Canon 44OOF as it is the one I'm thinking of buying for my needs ?

Any thoughts appreciated
