1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 22 Jan. 2014

This review is from: 7dayshop Portable High Resolution 35mm Film & Slide Scanner. Colour LCD Screen and 8GB SD Card - Use for your old Kodak, Fuji, Agfa, Konica, Ilford Colour Negative, Black & White and Colour Slide Films! (Electronics)
Unfortunately I believed some of the reviews on this. The results on monochrome were abysmal and with colour variable in the extreme. The definition was only just acceptable on a 10 x 15. It would have been more acceptable if the colour rendition had been a lot better. I compared the results for similar negatives with those from my flat-scanner which has provision for slide copying and the flat-bed won hands down. And it won on speed as well because although the scan took slightly longer the results did not require tinkering with to any extant as much as the ones from this device. My verdict would be on my experience; not for black and white, low contrast and bluish cast; possibly ok for colour if you don't generally hope to get too near the original. Generally slides are high definition with great colours and although they will deteriorate over time a satisfactory result from one copying device seems to point to a lack in the other. Someone less critical than me (and there seem to have been a few of them) might find this device acceptable and I suspect many may think I'm too critical!
The kit itself was well made, the negative holders were a little fiddly but when you got the knack were easy. I have returned it in the hopes of a refund. My gripe is with the kit not with 7dayshop I have always been satisfied with previous purchases and will continue to deal.
