I did my first real test of the slide scanning apparatus… and my first real pass at scanning slide in bulk wound up going at around 300 slides per hour. I got one stack of slides in my 12×12″ box scanned in around 45 minutes. This is around what my expectation was going into it.

All told, this is starting to go pretty well.

Next up is to write some software that collates these slides, including the images of both the front and back of the mounts, uploads thumbnails for initial post processing, and then actually processes them.
