Summary: Very easy to use and easy to connect and communicate with the computer. Quality of the copied photo often needs a little tweaking. Difficult to impossible to copy prints that are not the exact standard sizes of the holders. If they are too large they do not fit in and if they are a too small they fall out of the holder and into the scanner! The trays for slides or negatives work well but they only hold 4 slides or 6 negatives at a time.
Summary: My Uncle passed leaving approximately 1000 negatives. The rest of the family just wanted to throw everything out, instead I saved the negatives and put them through the scanner. Most commonly you can blow a 35 mm negative up to 5"x7" and still keep it clean. After using the maximum setting, I got very good prints at 8"x10". Absolutely love this. The negatives that were scratched I now have electronically stored so I can send them to the camera shop to clean them up.
Excerpt: This image converter is very easy to operate and does a great job of converting slides (and pictures - thought I haven't tried that yet). The slides load 4 at a time and slide through very quickly as you get a digital shot of each one. My only criticism would be that you have to manually center the slide - it doesn't have stops to click it into place. Yet it is very easy to do.
Pros: Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality, Lightweight
Summary: This is good for a family to copy from slides, negatives of 35 millimeter, and pictures that are not 8"X11", but smaller sizes. Once it copies to the Sim Card, you can transfer to your PC or Mac easily. To make higher quality copies you must purchase a much higher priced machine.
Excerpt: I've had old negatives for a while which are difficult to get scanned for a reasonable price. I just wanted to scan them for posterity's sake. Not to scan stuff for a gallery exhibition but good enough for old family photos. This is a super simple scanner. Anyone could use it and it does a fine job. If I had to knock it for anything it's that I wish it would connect directly to my computer to scan through Photoshop as opposed to scanning to the SD card.
Excerpt: Bought this image converter to take care of my slides from years ago. At first it was a little stiff to slide the frames thru the machine , but after a few time it slid right thru. Works great with slides. I might add it takes negatives and photo .Great machine , one feature that really is great, you can do this without a PC which means you can use a large table to work with your slides . I am we'll pleased. Delivery was fast packaging was great as usual.
