3.0 out of 5 stars Rollei DF-S 120 SE 7 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase
I read the reviews which were available on the website of a number of scanners. I eventually chose the Rollei DF-S 120SE based on the reviews and the fact that Rollei was always regarded as one of the better camera manufacturers. I have thousands if slides and both colour and black and white negatives.
Scanning the negatives was easy and only required minor Photoshop Elements adjustments to make them printable to A3 size. However, I have yet to produce a decent scan from a slide. I have chosen many different slides with various subjects and exposures and all were a little better than useless. The problem has been that all the dark colours i.e. blacks, browns, dark greys etc. turn out as very dark magenta. I have been unable to modify in Elements and I am very disappointed. The instructions are no help at all and the controls on the scanner don't seem to help either.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed experiences 7 Aug 2011

Hmmm ... It is possible to get digital images of a reasonable quality using this scanner but there are a few things to watch out for.

Firstly, I was unable to connect it to a computer despite the fact that it has a USB connection. It takes too much current and I don't think it declares itself as a high current device to the computer. My systems were unable to recognize it, that is both Windows XP and Windows 7 failed to connect to it properly and recognize it as a scanner. It comes with a power supply with a German plug and a British adapter, you plug the USB cable into this. The PSU is rated at 1 amp at 5 volts.

Secondly, the light is dim, thus your slides have a dark appearance unless you turn the light up to full brightness.

Thirdly, it crops the image around the edges, but then most slide scanners do this to some extent.

Fourth, it is not compatible with SD cards above 2Gb. There was a change in the standard for SD cards to accommodate higher capacities so you have to get an old (2Gb or less) SD card to use with this scanner. If you can still get hold of one then this is not a problem, a 1Gb card can hold an awful lot of pictures.

So it is possible to get reasonable quality pictures from this device but you have to use it as a standalone scanner with an old SD card and with the brightness and resolution turned up to maximum and accept the fact that the edges will be trimmed.

By printzz
After much head scratching on which film/neg scanner to buy i decided to go for this rollei,to be honest its a great
bit of kit!.Easy set up,saving your images onto sd-card in no time,have tried all formats ie colour negs/slides and black and white negs,all with great results.you can adjust the brightness in :stops: and it does work.Comes with 3 carriers for slides and 3 carriers for film.For the price its very good
with a reliable rollei name (they made some of the best german cameras!).Would recommend to buy.
Quick delivery from Soletek too!

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and relatively cheerful 23 Aug 2011
I bought this to copy a huge slide collection in a reasonable time at a reasonable cost. Undoubtedly this Rollei device is very rapid compared to my flatbed Epson scanner, but the trade off is quality. The quality of slides copied is not great - OK for "snaps" but the definition and colour rendition are quite poor and subtleties of the originals are lost even if time is spent playing with the limited exposure settings.

Colour negatives suffer even more, blue skies becoming muddy and detail disappearing.

On the other hand, reducing the copy time to maybe 10% of what it would take on the flatbed is bound to have a trade off and "professional" slide scanners are astronomic in price, so provided the material is not required to be absolutely faithful and you can afford time to clean things up afterwards on the few images that you might feel really deserve it then this is probably as good as it gets at this price point. The alternative is a slide projector, screen and digital camera on a tripod in a darkened room.....

You get what you pay for and the device is well put together and very convenient, it does not need to be connected to a computer to do its job and that is a big plus for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rollei Film Scanner DF-S 120 SE 15 Feb 2011
By caramay
Well packaged with both Slide & Negative holders,and easy to understand instructions.
All settings are managed on the small screen and the menu is simple to navigate for selecting Film Mode,Resolution,SD or PC capture,TV Viewing,Editing/Deleting and Exposure adjustment.
The EV mode for lightening or darkening the picture did not seem to make much of a difference through it's range.
The process of capture was simply pressing a single button and takes about 10 secs. in total. I chose to put all my slides directly onto an SD card (not supplied), and edit on my PC later.
The small flaps where the slide holder is fed through are a bit flimsy and I accidently broke one after inserting the cleaning brush the wrong way around.
Other than that I am very pleased with the results that have been achieved.

2.0 out of 5 stars not so good 18 May 2011
By Richard
On delivery this appeared to be a well made item but it did not work if plugged into my PC. there did not appear to be enough power from the USB port to power the scanner up, if the scanner was powered using the 240volt adaptor(supplied) it did power up but I was unable to transfer any scanned pictures to my PC or onto an SD card as the on screen menu system did not functon as stated in the instruction book. A great shame as this seemed to be the ideal solution to scanning my many hundreds of slides, perhaps I should have simply spent more money (that's always the way!)
