I have a two year old Canon FS 4000 that is slow but I am happy with.
The new rage are the cheaper Konica scanners that are very well reviewed by the photo mags. Like the
You'll load up a hard disk space pretty fast.
at 4000 dpi a 35 mm slide has 6K x 4K = 24000000 pixels
each pixel has three bytes of info for 8 bit (3 color channels rgb) resolution
The scanners can be pushed to 16 bit resolution.
My thought is that slide film has about 4000 dpi resolution and maybe 12 bit resolution.
Thus expect each scanned slide to be over 50 Mbytes file size at 8 bit and over a 100Mb possible per image at 16 bit res.
No wonder it takes an acre or more of high end servers to render professional CG movies.
