I'm lost...
Author: hartrick24

    I have about 150 slides that I would love to have put on some discs. If Wolfe Camera was around, I wouldn't be writing this. Is there any companies that do this? I wouldn't have a clue what to do and wouldn't want to buy any equipment for this. This would be a one time thing and would rather pay for a company...

It's amazing what the 'search' function in the upper right corner of every TO screen can yield.

Doing a scan for: slide scanning service  turned up the following:

Looking for top notch service
Sam's Club scanning service
Poor girl needs ideas transferring slides to digital
Digitizing large film collections - Suggestions?

The above are just a couple of threads that answer your question more than adequately.  You'll have to read down a ways in each thread, some of the respondents in each thread provide a list of commercial services.

I don't think he intended to be an ass, sometimes it just comes out that way in text. I know I've typed things only to reread it later and think wow I sounded like a colossal jerk. However, he did give you links to view and you did respond back like a giant turd. See how easily it is to be miss understood.

Digmypics. They use top of the line Nikon scanners.  I've used them in the past and they do exceptional work.

Just make sure to ask for their best quality scan. Don't go cheap if these are truly special slides. Scanning is part one - color editing is part two if you want truly good results.

I recently ran across AMB Media LLC. They operate under at least three brand names: southtree.com, legacybox.com, and kodakdigitizing.com. Two interesting points: (1) they licensed the Kodak name, and (2) they seem to have built a business very short on niggling details such as scan resolution.

Have you considered using your digital camera to digitize your images? See attached photos of the two machines I use. The Beseler was found on eBay, the other one I made. 
I've been doing this for about ten yeras now. I was faced with the problem of scanning odd sized formats and glass negative larger than 4x5.
I bought a Besler slide duping machine and instead of using a film camera to make dupe, I used my digital camera. I've done many publishing projects using this method. I can scan difficult subject matter with exposure and color issues and get good results. You will need a program like Photoshop to be able to sucessful in color correction beyond what you can do with the Besler duping machine.
