My son Robert scanned this on an Epson V700 in 2009 using the native Epson software. All the family negatives and most of the prints that did not have negatives were scanned by the end of summer 2009. We're working on my slide collection with a Nikon Super Coolscan 5000ED.

Robert did an excellent job with a variety of negatives from 110 (13 x 17 mm image, 1972-2009) to 616 (70 mm wide, 64 x 108 mm image, 1932-1984) film.

This 127 size film was produced 1912-1995 by Kodak and is still available in 2011 from Fotokemika in Croatia.

Richard's Father used an old family 616 camera from 1951-1957

I have used the following:
--127 Brownie from 1958-1962
--35 mm from 1963-2003
--110 Canon 1978-1978
--DX Nikon digital 2003 to present
----2003-present D100
----2007-present D200
--Kodak DX4330 digital 2003-2003
--Olympus C-750 digital 2003-2006
----(the boys used these in 2007 for the Alaska trip
----Mary Beth's brother now has the one that still works)

Mary Beth has used the following formats:
--110 Kodak 1973-1981
--35 mm from 1993-2003
--Olympus C-750 digital 2003-2006
--She and her brother have also used a D100 Nikon (we ended up with two)

I commonly use these AF Nikon lenses with the D200:
12-24 f/4, 18-200 f/3.5-5.6 VR, 80-400 f/3.8-5.6 VR
and these less frequently
35 f/2, 85 f/1.8, 105 f/2.8 micro, 180 f/2.8, 500 f/4.0 P, TC-14b Varioflex/Schneider 65 f/6.3

I commonly use these AF lenses with the D100:
24 f/2.8, 60 f/2.8 micro

The family usually uses the 24-120 f/3.5-5.6 VR on the other D100
