However the machine did work and the colours were true to the slides. The cartridge to insert the slides in was practical and it enabled a soft brush and or lens blower to remove any dust from the actual slide just prior to insertion in the machine. Storing the images on to a SD card was straightforward and these could easily be accessed or transferred to a computer.
I very quickly unpacked the scanner and was pleased with its appearance and feel - it seems to be sturdier than some that I have seen. Within a short time I had scanned in almost whole 120 slide magazine. The scan is very quick and the slide holder takes four slides.
The slides that I scanned were about forty years old and most required a little 'freshening up' in a photo editor but I am well pleased with the results so far.
Being a standalone unit, you don't need a computer to scan your slides/films - it stores your results on an SD card, which I think is quite a useful feature.
Early days yet, but I am very happy with my choice of this scanner, it suits my purposes well at a reasonable cost.
Negative Points:Dust and fluff build up on light source very quick.(will somtimes show up on new image)Can be cleaned/removed with tool provided or air spray canister.Mains lead very short.
All points considered very please with product,managed to transfer some 40 year old slides to PC and photo prints,some had started to deteiorate to badly to use.
