Toys! I love them!

OMG I have a new toy and I'm having so much fun!  Its a digital negative scanner and I have hundreds of negatives of my fathers , taken in the  sixties, some of which have never been printed except onto a proof sheet. Ok, they are getting a bit damaged after all this time but I thought it was time to do something permanent and save what I could. This little wee scanner converts the negatives to digital photos! Check these out!

oh this looks a great little piece of kit Viv.
I'll need to go check this one out as my hubby is a keen photographer and has loads of negatives laying around too.

Oh wow Viv, that is awesome. My Dad got this done a few years ago through some professional photographers that do it, however we didn't have that many slides. Your so lucky to have a heap of slides to get photos from. Have fun with this new 'toy'.
