Phew! I can now start scanning again as my new scanner has arrived.
I wasn't actually sure that it was the scanner when it arrived - the box was big enough to hold at least half a dozen...
But after digging through all the shredded cardboard packaging inside I only found one box!
It's a Cannon 9000F flatbed and film scanner all in one, so I've been able to replace two separate scanners with just the one. Meant I had to tidy up my desk... duh!
So now I can scan not only my 35mm negatives and slides but the 120 roll film ones as well. And (pauses to let you get a bit excited) Miss Jeannie has given me a box of her father's 120 negatives showing Blackpool properties from the 1960s.
I might work my way slowly through those and take some photos from the same places for comparison with today! But of course I did have to have a go to see if it worked, so to compare yesterday's shots of Marsh Mill, Thornton, with the same place before the craft village was built, here's a shot from 1983/84.
Oh yes! It works!
