    Simplest way, camera on tripod, slow shutter speed around 1/15th second,
    then photograph image on monitor.

    Other way, slightly *better* quality, save image as jpeg on a floppy, take
    to a good Pro-Lab and they'll make a slide for you. I wouldn't be at all
    surprised if Jessops would offer that service too.

  3. If you go down this route and you're using a modern film camera (SLR) which
    probably has fast exposure metering (certainly the EOS range), I'd recommend
    taking a reading and then using Manual exposure. I found that when I used Auto
    exposure the camera reacted to the rapid fluctuations in brightness caused by
    the scanning process. Some slides were fine, others were way out and being film
    I didn't learn about the mistakes until time deadlines were becoming very real.

    Yep, if you're using a digital still camera, and it uses a memory
    card (eg smartmedia), simply take the card to Jessops etc and
    they'll make slides directly from that.
