Reflecta DigitDia 5000

Rating: 4/5 ★★★★☆ 

Price £1175.59

The Reflecta DigitDia 5000; successor of the 4000 model (almost identical bar a 20% speed increase), is capable of producing great quality results but it is a fairly specialized product.

If you have a collection of mounted slides, like most people with 35mm format and you have a lot of them, this will be very well suited as it is almost mechanically identical to a slide projector which means automatic loading of up to 100 slides is extremely simple.  Be aware that it is unable to scan film strip. This specialization is not a bad thing as the built in auto feed system is very robust and compatible with most of the common slide magazines (listed below) making it even more handy if you happen to use one of them to store your slides.

The quality of scans is very good and with the digital ICE technology and Silverfast ai software you can expect very good (and quick) results. However it is not up there with the resolution of top professional scanners on the market, although with its quoted 3600 dpi scans it is enough for all but the professional requirements.
