Default Microfiche

I came over hear from the Onan portion of Smokstak. Looking for some help. I maybe coming across with a large amount of microfiche. I would like to convert these to .pdf . Does anybody know an economical way to do this? Could be 200 or 300 sheets.
Thanks, Mike

Sadly isn't a really cheap way. There are services on web that will perform conversion, but they are pricey. Cheapest is just get a 9600dpi scanner and do it yourself. Scanner produces jpg files. You'll need software to convert jpg to pdf.

Another way to do it is to check with a local library. Some have scanners that are. incorporated into their microfiche readers. You could print out the pages and go from there or some have it set up so you can send the image right to your email. You may have to talk to the history or genealogy department as that is where they are usually located at.

An Epson V600 is a fairly cheap (~$200 or so) flatbed scanner capable of scanning film (it has a backlight integrated into the lid). Microfiche cards might be a little tricky, but doable. Microfilm would be no problem.
