  1. Here it is 2013 and these may sound like a crazy questions: 1) Like many photographers in my age bracket I've got many thousands of slides sitting around. Some would seem of value - in some cases only historical. You know like photos of Silicon Valley in the 1980's or countries that are no more (GDR, CSFR etc.) In the past I've submitted successfully a handful of film scans to Alamy. But as best as I recall they were all medium or large format transparencies that were drum scanned. Large and medium format drum scans still outperform digital cameras I think, but not so with 35mm. I no longer have access to a drum scanner. Anybody have any luck with bulk slide scanning? I don't want to waste too much time or money if they won't make it through QC. There are some services that will scan shoe boxes of slides for cheap LINK- I think they get sent off to India and scanned in Nikon scanner (?) But I don't think my slides from the late 1980's through the 1990's might not work as they often were grainy, nor were the lenses they as sharp as my present digital kit. If anybody here has recently submitted slide scans, did they make it through QC? Would they have made it if they were original digital files? 2) I on rare occasion still shoot large format black and white film. I process and print myself, and for that I assume I could get a good scan from a print. Does anybody else out there still submit monochrome analog images? Do they sell? Could a photobuyer find them in the Instagram age of faux keywording with terms like Polaroid, cross processed, Lomo, Velvia etc used to describe digital images?
