I finally broke down (yeah, I know a day late & a dollah short) to the party & got one of those film digitizing gizmos. Just learning it for now as this is the old dodgy computer again. The shiny new one went back for warranty repair yesterday.

So I'm going to digitize the old B&W & Color Negative & transparency files & go totally digital.
By my best guess thats 60,00 35mm transparencies & 14,000 color as well as 12,000 B&W negatives!
It does have a "feeder" of sorts, but thats still 86,000 images! Luckily I have plenty of HDD storage space 2 terrabites!

Its actually not that bad many of the images are variations on a theme, shot vertical & horizontal with a "bracket" of 3 exposures each , & I'll be doing some slash & burn editing on the way. That's a butt load of scanning.
