Re: Rafe:"Best" color slide /color neg/photovix



Actually it works great. It is sold and made by Tamron. You then need a
video capture card or a Snappy or similar device to digitize the picture if
you want to store images on anything else but videotape or to print them out
on your printer. They are fairly expensive though.  I use a snappy myself
with a SVHSC Camcorder and a lightbox with the Snappy.  Made a neg. carrier
from some matboard with a hole cut out for 35 mm and another for medium
format. You would be surprised at the quality you can get from the Snappy! I
have made very good printouts from it and it is great for webpages and
proofing. The Snappy has a number of cool features that the Fotovix doesn't
have. Check it out at www.play.com
It is also $1,500.00 or so cheaper than a Fotovix that does medium format!
