Default Kodak Carousel scanner?

I sent this idea to Kodak, on hearing somewhere they were discontinuing Carousel projectors.

How about a slide scanner which accepts Carousel trays, and burns a CD-R (or DVD-R if that's what's needed for a whole tray)?

Anyone heard of a scanner which accepts Carousel trays? Using a service to convert all the trays we inherited from older relatives who travelled the world in the 50s and 60s would be cost-prohibitive!

An update to this.. I got e-mail from Kodak who said they have not current intentions to produce a slide scanner that accepts Carousel trays. Has anyone seen a product that will?

Have you been able to find a scanner for Kodak Carousels. It is incredible to think that with the BILLIONS of 35mm slides out there someone would not develop a method to scan them. Even using the mmechanics if the projector with a ccd somehow.

Has anyone solved this? I want it badly too. I have found ..

Pacific Image PowerSlide 3600

butwon't buyit after reading the reviews. The next best solution seems to be ..

Nikon Super Coolscan LS5000 & SF-210 slide feeder

but this is still not the same as being able to directly use my carousels, and with 50 of them, that's what I really want to do.

I saw a post somewhere recently where the person replaced the high intensity bulb in a carousel projector with a lower wattage one, added a piece of white translucent plastic between the lamp and the slide holder as a diffuser, removed the lens of the projector and used a digital camera with a close-up lens to photograph his slide collection. He even went so far as to build an electronic device that would index the carousel every 5 seconds and remotely trigger his camera. He could set it up with a full carousel, push a button, and walk away while it did its thing.

If I find it I'll post a link.

Here's the link:

Has anyone developed a product for this yet?

Is it true that the Pacific Image PowerSlide 3600 will not take Kodak trays?
