Many videos these days are picture heavy. Tribute videos are an example of this. To tell the story of someone's life, you need pictures, and the older the person , the more arcane the media. Slides, negatives, prints, even photos from books like yearbooks and scrapbooks are all fair game to fill out the video with meaningful moments. The same is true for corporate videos, where pictures can fill in the historical blanks that more current video or film can't provide.
A number of companies have made scanning products that can make your job easier. Not everything can be easily scanned on a flatbed scanner. Slides and negatives are a good example of this. Slides ruled the roost in photography for their excellent color and projectability from the late 1940's to the the mid 1990's. It was only then that digital cameras started appearing. The products I will feature here all add something new to the picture acquisition job, from versatility to image quality to speed!
There are slide and negative scanners, a photo batch scanner that puts the flatbed to shame, and even a motion picture scanner that puts most homemade solutions (camcorder recording projected film off the wall) to shame. I've chosen items that are a bit higher end-- I'm assuming you are a pro and need efficiency, quality and speed and these items will save you time, and time is money.
