About:I'm an Electrical Engineer by training and profession. I got into digital photography about 3 years ago when my wife and I started a home business that digitizes photos, slides, and negatives, and home videos. When I discovered that it takes approximately 10 min to scan 4 slides with dust correction turned on, I knew there had to be a faster way. This led me to research the use of DSLR cameras and equipment and software to speed up the digitizing processes. I found that there are much faster ways (seconds vs minutes) to convert photos, slides, and negatives using a digital camera & specialized, but low cost, conversion software. The Instructables that I post are intended to share the fruit of my research efforts to make it easier for you to digitize your memories.
