I probably spent the same amount as buy a scanner, but I figured it was a one-off deal and I could not buy a high speed / quality scanner for what I paid.

Attached a low res scan of a slide for 4x4 content. Original RTT on a Land Rover in Mozambique.
that reminds me of the rig i drove in high school. neato.

It really comes down to your budget, patience and a deadline if you have one. It is a hobby afterall, if it seems fun, the heck with what anyone else says. This is the main reason why I stuck with film. It's not my job so I can afford to take time exposing film, developing and printing photos. The quiet and smells of a traditional darkroom are relaxing to me. No reason scanning slides can't be stress relief, too.

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
