    I have used a 50' cable - it is just regular zip cord from Radio Shack with mono plugs attached. Little heavier wire than what is used on the 15' phono cords.

    Great piece of equipment. Never had a misfire (unless you count the time I forgot to take off the safety). Also very easy to use in manual mode.

    Its a very very time consuming process. Several years ago, I started scanning 100's of old slides. I ended up returning the scanner and shipping the slides out and having them scanned professionally.

    Obviously, they can be confused on a blind. However, in AKC HT rules, at least, it states "There is no allowance for confusion on blind retrieves". Section 7, page 25 of current rule book.
