Q:

I am trying to understand the difference and possible value of scanning my slides to 4000 vs. 2000 dpi. I intend on viewing them using a 1080P plasma TV that is 70 inches diameter. Will the 4000 dpi scan provide additional resolution and picture sharpness vs. the 2000 dpi, or do you only use a 720p DVD which makes the 4000 dpi irrelevant? Thanks.

George G.  asked on  Oct 7, 2012

A:

Hi George! Since you're planning on viewing the images at such a large size, I would recommend 4000 dpi. You will see an increase in the clarity and sharpness at 4000 dpi. Just to clarify, we upload the images onto a DVD data disc which is not intended for use on your DVD player. If you would like to view your disc on your DVD player, you can order a basic slideshow for $10. The basic slideshow is a video formatted DVD.

Q:

What is the maxiumum number of photos I can send to you to be placed on a disc using one groupon deal of $40.00

Lynn H.  asked on  Oct 7, 2012

A:

Hi Lynn! We scan loose printed photos that measure 8'' x 10'' and below for $.48 at 300 dpi or for $.68 per photo at 600 dpi. If you want to create prints from your images, at 300 dpi you can create a print the same size of the original. At 600 dpi, you can print at double the size of the original. You can have 208 photos scanned at 300 dpi with the $100 value Groupon plus shipping costs.

Q:

When you transfer paper photos to DVD will I be able to copy the photo files to an external hard drive and will I be able to edit them and upload them to a printing company like shutterfly? Will I be able to post the DVD copies made from my 8mm tapes on Facebook?

Don M.  asked on  Oct 6, 2012

A:

Hi Don! Yes, you will be able to use your photo files as you please. We just scan the images into standard jpeg files. Tapes are a little different due to the formatting on the DVD. Video DVDs have to be formatted as VOB files to make them playable. VOB files can't be used for uploading. In your case, I would recommend the expert transfer. If you would like to edit your footage, we recommend the expert transfer. With the expert transfer, tapes that are two hours or less are transferred for $29.95. Tapes that are more than two hours are transferred at $29.95 for every two hours. In addition to standard DVDs, an AVI file will be created and will be uploaded onto an external hard drive, which you may provide or purchase from us for $119.95. We require 30GB of free space for every 2 hour tape. The AVI file is ready to edit and is compatible with any software and is compatible with PC or Mac.

I have over 2000 Slides. Do you offer a bulk discount? With or without the groupon? Thanks, Sheila Lee

Sheila  asked on  Oct 6, 2012

Hi Sheila! The $100 option can be applied toward a bulk order (1,000+ photos)—combining the Groupon discount with a $0.10-off-per-photo bulk discount—but only one Groupon may be applied with this option.

Q:

Can I put many random slides on a circular cassette and have you put them on a dvd? How many will I get for $115.00? Joan

Joan A.  asked on  Oct 5, 2012

A:

Hi Joan! It sounds like your slides are in carousels. We scan 35mm slides for $.68 per slide at 2000 dpi or for $.88 per slide at 4000 dpi. You can have 441 35mm slides scanned at 2000 dpi. Thanks for your interest in our deal! Please feel free to contact us at support@scandigital.com with any further questions. Have a great day!

Nicole S.  from  Self  replied on  Oct 5, 2012

A:

This still doesn't answer my question at all. How many slides can I get for $115.00?

Joan A.  from  Self  replied on  Oct 5, 2012

A:

Hi Joan! Sorry for the confusion! The merchant stated the following: "You can have 441 35mm slides scanned at 2000 dpi." This is them saying that you can digitize 441 slides with the $115 Groupon. They calculated this by dividing the value of this Groupon option ($300) by the per slide cost of digitizing 2000 dpi slides ($0.68).

If your slides are 4000 dpi, this would cost $0.88 per slide. If you divide the value of the Groupon ($300) by the per slide cost of digitizing 4000 dpi slides ($0.88), you can transfer around 340 slides.

You can calculate the cost of any digitization service. Click here to find all of their pricing information.
