I have a thousand or more 35mm B&W negs.
There are many companies offering their services to scan them to a disc.

They are expensive to do... Maybe $1,000 or so

I do not really want to invest the time and energy to become a scanning whiz.

The question is whether or nor i should buy a scanner and do them myself. Will I achieve the quality levels and is it cost effective. Once I done scanning these negs I am done and will never be doing any more.


If the answer is send them and get them done commercially, who is the best ie:
Quality consistent with a Nikonians expectations.
Reasonably fast as i have stories of scans taking months.
Reasonable price, ie the best price without compromising quality or delivery time
