Superspeed Scanner

a scanner that works like a xerox machine
  [vote for,

I would really love a scanner into which you could put multiple photos to scan, just as you would a feeder on a xerox machine. Somehow you would have to create a system so that the photos would not get bent, but it has to be possible.

Dependent on the image size, you can do multiple images on most of these economy models, though none incorporates a true sheet feeder. [jurist, Jun 07 2002, last modified Oct 17 2004]

       Yes, so possible in fact that there are several of them in my office building. To put it another way, baked.

       Amazing what you find when you type "photo scanner feeder" into Google!   

       But if you're scanning large number of photos you should use a film scanner (or possibly a transparency scanner) rather than scanning prints; many film scanners come with feeders for rolls of 35mm or APS film.

       Or you could get a digital camera, perhaps?

       No good if you have a backlog of old 35mm work to digitize (unless you plan to re-photograph the prints / negs / transparencies).
<aside> I've recently started using a digital camera (Sony Mavica) after years of 35mm stuff. I reasoned that I wasn't using my camera to its fullest extent (because it was a drag getting films developed) or to its fullest capabilities. The loss of features (manual focus, exposure control) in the Sony is not really a problem.</aside>
