    A question,

    As I read the posting on "Fall in Georgetown" it becomes quite a thread on
    Software. In fact, I suspect a 1/4 of all posting here has something to do
    with software. OT??

    That pretty much mirrors my own take on the query.

    I'm still using a three-year-old Canon 2400 U to resurrect some of my
    *old* 35 mm and 2?2 stuff. Just about everything I've been scanning,
    has ended up in a 8.5x11 print; and I couldn't be more pleased with
    the results.

    'Suppose the Canon equivalent these days would be CanoScan 8400F,
    which conveniently fits within your budgetary parameters. While my old
    scanner will only do 3 negatives at a time, the 8400F will batch scan
    twelve 35mm negatives at once. Although I haven't checked it out,
    positives may be limited to individual scanning.

    Even under the best of conditions, at least a little post processing
    in PS will be required for optimum results.

    The posts "Fall in Geortown" and "Fall at the Cathedral" were both Off Topic because it did
    not comply with "What Is Considered Off-Topic: Posting links to personal photo galleries or
    images, not in the context of DSLR photography"

    A peer pointed this out to me and told me he was notified of that. It was based upon that
    email that I viewd those posts then saw this thread. Based upon the URL she provided me in
    email, I posted what I posted.

  6. It certainly wasn't a problem for me.

    For me, newsgroups are a wonderful tool for sharing information, and
    although in theory one might expect to get the best answers from a group
    that deals specifically with the issue in question - in practice I often
    find that I get better answers from people who use particular products is
    particular ways - my most recent example being a photoshop question: I
    didn't get anywhere posting on a photoshop newsgroup, but got the answer
    here.

    Again, speaking personally, if I have an issue I need help with then I
    reserve the right to ask whatever group I feel has the best chance of
    helping me. I don't consider it to be "off topic" per sec - and I don't
    believe that, done responsibly, it creates any issues worthy of mention -
    especially in a very quiet group such as this.

    I have a Minolta too. I agree with your comments.
    Most of my slides are in good condition but I had
    to work on a few of them.
