Lost memory recall.
on 13 January 2013
This was a Christmas present and one which has kept me busy since. I cannot get over the fact that such a small item
could give me so much pleasure. It is simple to use and its performance belighs its size. I have already salvaged 1250 -
30 - 40 year old colour slides, of which over 90% have been successfully copied onto a SD card. The rest had suffered from being
stored and forgotten about. The quality of the pictures if printed are not as good as one one get today using the modern camera,
but when the card is used on the computer screen then the quality becomes almost equal, to my amazement. I can now look at my
family when young, so clearly and without having to find a projector and screen.
I have now tried to copy old colour negatives (150 so far) on to a SD card and again cannot believe the simplicity of doing that
as well. Again when seen on the computer screen the photos are as good as the prints which were produced at the time.
I timed myself when doing the colour transparencies and the films and managed over 100 images in 1 hour with short rest periods.
I look forward to going through many more old slides and films to do the same thing.
I cannot recommend this item enough to anyone else to do the same thing, but remember to keep the screen inside the unit clean
regularly using the special brush provided because old transparencies sometimes loose small particles of emulsion and leave a
white mark on the next image. Have fun to all who wish to try it.
