Today you can buy a desktop scanner, such as an Imacon, hook it up and
scan away. These old drums require a temperature controlled room
(68f), a lot of space, and specialized training to operate. In
addition there is some maintenance involved by a trained technician, if
you can even find one. The company that took care of our stuff, went
out of business when we cancelled our $30k annual contract, just no
demand for his service. We even offered him our units for free which he
declined because he had three in his garage already. So compared to
what you can plop down on your desk today, they do suck, but you could
scan a 12"x20" neg on one!
