Ok. I use a flatbed scanner (it can do slides as well using an adapter).

Just don't look at the scanning light when the lid is open, as it will need to be when scanning photos still in albums. I just hold the album in place, look away from it and click the button.

This would probably be a lot quicker than setting up for each photo from a camera - although the scanning takes longer you will get a better result in my opinion with no fear of reflections or light interference corrupting the image. I have done hundreds like this myself - it's still on-going, my wife is a shutterbug!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
