..-.ndma's Kodak Petite ,■ .. basic compact folding camera with a simple lens and shutter that was offered in several different colors from 1929 to 1933. It took eight exposures in the 15/8x2V4-inch format on 127 roll film. If it had the original bellows in matching color, it would be worth nearly $200 with case, but yours has a black replacement, which reduces its value to about $100—still, not bad.

Scanning scads of slides i : i ¡ere a scanner that will scan many s at one time? I have 1,200 slides I want to transfer to DVDs. There's one unit advertised in your magazine that looks like it can do 12 slides at a time, but is that my best option?

can get good results, and scan iple slides, negatives, or mediumformat film, with a flatbed scanner like the Epson Perfection 4990 Photo ($499 street)—with hi-res dust removal and faded-color restoration options—or the $360 (street) Microtek i800 (see page 62). But for slides, a film scanner may be the best choice for maximum detail and tonal range. Two excellent ones: the Konica Minolta DiMAGE scan Elite 5400 II ($570 street), which has a holder for six-image filmstrips or four slides in cardboard mounts, and the Nikon Coolscan LS 5000 ($980 street), which accepts an auto-feeder (the SF-210, $450 street) that can take stacks of 50 slides at a time.
