I have now experimented with the Epson V700 which scans 12 slides at a time. I 
think the quality is good even at 1200 dpi (I tried 1200, 2400, and 3200) and 
the scanning times (10 - 30 minutes per 12 slides depending on settings) and 
file sizes (700kb - 3,000 kb for jpeg files depending on settings) are very 
acceptable. The Epson standard Dust Removal works well too. Now all I need to 
do is to try and find the best combination of quality, file size and speed!

Incidentally we also had a go at photographing projected slides using a digital 
camera and found the results were pretty good when the camera was mounted on a 
tripod. (The camera was mounted just behind and above the projector). With a 
highly reflective and flat screen (ours has little bumps on the surface) I 
reckon you could get good results and it is very quick.
