PERFORMANCE: Scan Times: 35mm

ALL RESOLUTIONS:
Four index scans: 43 seconds
Four prescans: 1:27 total w/ICE, 1:10 total no ICE

Remember the scanner can hold four 35mm slides at a time. The scan times in these tables are for a single scan. If I have let the scanner run and scan a bunch of slides at the same time I also report that total time at the bottom of the table. The single slide scan times reported in the tables are measured as single scans; they are not simply reporting a fraction of the time taken to scan several slides. The total for several slides tends to be a little faster than scanning the slides one by one.
