    I have a ton of old slides that are nice, but not nice enough to warrant having them scanned at insane prices. I hear good results can be had with, say, my 20D and some nice glass. Flatbed scans seem to suck no matter which one I try and my friend's Nikon slide scanner ate it recently :(

    Anyone got one of these things and can you post results of your efforts with it?

    yes they are by far the fastest method of scanning.
    i have a nikon scanner and it was $200 ish used, and can take several minites to scan one image. ICE mode really slows it to a crawl.

    not sure what you're looking to hear. If you can find one, sweet. but you'll be checking ebay and craigslist for a while most likely. pawn shops might not hurt too
