Excerpt: I have just begun to use the scanner. First I had to search for the power button. ~1 out of 3 times the "cannot connect with scanner" box comes on and I have to re-press the scan button. I haven't figured out the trick to make the pictures scan separately every time, so I have to pay attention and cancel, if need be, before I press scan on the computer. The quality of the scan on these old pictures is really good.
Pros: Ability To Scan More Than, Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Quality Of Scanned Photos, The Quickness In Scanning
Cons: Doesn't Always Scan Separ, Have To Re-push Start But
Summary: As with any product purchased for a singular purpose, you want it to satisfy your needs, both ergonomically and functionally. This unit is lacking in location of on/off switch and clear precise cropping lines to satisfy my needs. Others may find this of little bother. I like to quickly crop within documents to extract only what I need. You have to go through too many steps to achieve this.
Summary: I scanned a family photo from 1936 which had some scratches on it. Couldn't believe the difference after scanning using the restore color and Digital ICE feature! Other than that I have not tried any other features, but was very impressed with how easy it was to get a great reproduction of this family treasure!!
Summary: I thought I would write this review in an effort to help others who may be in the same boat as me. Specifically, someone who's foolish enough to continue to shoot film in 2014! I actually started shooting film about a year ago, and it's been a slow learning experience for me. (I continue to work in digital as well and don't get to designate that much time to film.) I cannot comment on how this scanner performs as anything but a negative scanner.
