4.0 out of 5 stars I really liked this machine once I got used to the way ..., 29 Jun. 2016

I really liked this machine once I got used to the way it works. I've used it to digitise mostly hundreds of 35mm slides but have now discovered a box of old 35mm negatives which need doing too. Dust management is key throughout - and that applies I suspect to any similar machine. Vacuuming the whole working areas before starting each session and wiping each slide with a clean microfibre cloth seemed to work best. Microfibre didn't scratch nor appear to leave any static on the slides. Any dust bits can be removed from the scanned photo using the software but obviously it's best to try to avoid the need for that where possible.

The thing that took a while to get right was the exposure. 90% of slides scanned very well with the automatic setting but a few were overexposed and had bleached-out sections or were underexposed. I found the best bet with those was to repeatedly scan the slide changing the exposure setting by one mark each time and then choose the best when viewing on the computer. The screen on the front of the device unfortunately does not really give a clue as to how satisfactory the final image will be - it's only use is to make sure the slide is correctly lined up.

The slide hopper was also slightly too tight for the cardboard mounted slides and it was a bit fiddly pushing each one down firmly whilst being careful not to touch the slide or get dust on it. But with practice that became less of a problem.

The results, with care, were very clear and professional - very satisfactory indeed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very happy with this product, 29 Jun. 2016

Does what it's supposed to. Software and connections easy to set up and it works faultlessly on Windows 10. Quality is just as good as the original video which of course is limited being, well, Hi8 video in my case. Very good value for money considering the price of other similar sounding products so pleased I got this.
