I agree with the reviewer who said it's not a scanner, it is a cheap colour camera with an LED backlight.
I am not throwing away the original slides just yet.
The resolution of the scanned images is 2400 x 1600, but the picture is not pin-sharp, particularly towards the edge. I don't think the optics match the digital resolution.
It claims to be 5 megapixel scanner, but my sums says 2400x1600=3.84 Megapixel. I have never had any more pixels than this so I'm not sure how they justify the higher number.
The LED backlight works well and gives good colour rendition in my opinion. The contrast is sometimes a little higher than the original, but this often seems to happen when you copy slides. It is a dust-magnet, and although a special brush was supplied to clean it, I found a good blast of air was more effective. You can't see bits of dust on the little screen and a whole session of scanning can be ruined if there is dirt on the sky area, as it appears on every scan.
It was supplied with a power adaptor and a USB cable which is too short (1.2m), necessitating the use of an extension lead to reach a table at a convenient working height. The adaptor that came with mine seemed perfectly safe.
It scans in just a couple of seconds, and the slide holders work well. The negative holder is also good, but it has pegs to engage with the sprocket holes, and this means the frame does not always line up with the image perfectly... it probably depends on what camera was used to take the picture, and could be as much as half a sprocket hole out (2-3 mm). I may buy a spare holder and try "modifying" it with a pair of wire cutters to remove the pegs!Read more ›
Got it and within 2 mins was scanning negatives from 20 years ago and the quality of the images that came out was excellent. 2GB SD card with it as well. Only thing I had problems with was trying to use the more modern 4GB cards did not work but that is not a great pain as you can transfer from the card to your PC when done or put another 2GB card in and fill that up. Pictures come out at 2520x1680 and 712K ish. Speed of scanning is quick and with practice can get though a fair volume of slides in an hour.
If youve got old negatives and slides and need them digital but dont want to spend £5000 for professional kit this is the one to go for. ION FILM2SD FILMSCANNER
I had some concerns after going through the reviews but i was really amazed.
Firstly it was very easy to set up (might of been a little harder if my mum had done it lol) less than a minute and she was scanning her first batch, most of these slides were from the 60's and 70's so we had no photo equivilant. The results depended on the slide not the machine.
It couldnt be easier. load the tray, turn it on click to veiw and click again to save, move the tray along one and repeat. its that easy.
This makes the difference of having a digital picture of your treasured memories or not.
My mum spent 2-3 hours christmas day scanning and then we watched them through the TV as a family. it was one of the best family times i had spent in a long time and its all thanks to getting access to images through the slide and film scanner.
