We have a LOT of old photographs (and negatives) stored in boxes. I'm talking about thousands and thousands of pictures taken with 35mm of my family, and some heirloom photos from extended family that have passed way. Years ago I bought a fairly expensive Epson V750 Pro scanner and tried to star scanning a few times. I frankly haven't had the time to really do it because scanning with a high quality scanner is very slow and time consuming... although the results are very good. It is much quicker to take pictures of old photographs with my iPhone. What I'm curious about is what is the real quality/resolution difference between using the iPhone vs. scanner... assuming I scanned at 600DPI for example with the scanner (its capable of much higher resolution). I'm at the point of thinking it would be better for me to have them captured by the iPhone vs. procrastinating for another 10 years (or forever) because of the time involved of using the scanner. Anyone done any comparisons or have any thoughts on this? What apps have you tried on the iPhone?
