I'd be using a new iMac, and have about 80 rolls of B&W film, and 20 or so boxes of slides.

a) am I crazy to try scan that myself? Do I need to join a monastery to accomplish it?

b) What kind of scanner ---- flat bed or strip feed?

c) The new USB 3 has a great IO speed. What brand of scanner uses this new technology.

d) I would like to get an 11x14 inch B&W printer with the multiple greytone cartridges. I would use it a bunch for a short time, then it would be idle for months. Does that usage suggest having a pro shop do the printing because the inks would dry up? (I retired from FedEx and get a whopping discount at all FedEx office shops for printing services)
