slow, but great for 3-D (small sculptures)

rural girl, Amazon

  • Summary: This scanner is slow and it's so slow that I'm looking to buy a newer faster one, but for the original purpose I bought it for, 3-D objects, specifically small sculptures, it works better than any of the others that I had tried. I imagine it would scan things like flowers and whatever else that isn't flat beautifully. I now just want to scan photos and this is way too slow and the software isn't very helpful; few choices.

Disappointingly slow

  • Summary: Unfortunately the very accurate review of 24th Oct was posted after I had ordered this scanner otherwise I would not have. Yes it does take 1 minute per frame so the product description of "digitize and restore stacks of negatives in a few simple steps" though correct, would take a lifetime to actually do. I am going to buy a high speed USB cable to see if that might increase the speed..otherwise can't see myself digitizing anything.

Good but could be better

A. Johnson, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this scanner to scan in my old negatives. This scanner will do that with no cropping required, although it is a bit of a skill to get each strip to load properly at first. I do however have a problem with this scanner, and that is that is isn't as good as it should be in aligning the negative frames with its scans.

Insufficient negativ- och dia-skanning

Europiden, Ciao
5 January 2009
  • Excerpt: Har haft skannern i ett år. Relativtlättinstallerad men ibland måste den installeras om efter att den tappar fysisk kontakt med datorn. Kvaliteten på Photo är ypperlig och vartenda dammkorn går att urskilja om man vill det. Däremot har jag aldrig fått negativ.skanningen att fungera. Jag laddar filmen, den matas in i rätt position, man hör hur den kallibrerar skytteln, programvaran är rätt konfigurerad - men därefter - låser sig hela systemet och ingen skannig tar vid.
  • Pros: Fantastiskt bra återgivning på reflekterande dokument och foton .
  • Cons: Systemet låser sig vid film -  och dia - skanning .
