HP Scanjet G3010 Photo Scanner


The HP Scanjet G3010 Photo Scanner is aimed squarely at home users. It does its best work when scanning photographic prints.

Handles photographic prints reasonably well. Scans 35mm slides and strips of film as well as standard documents.

Limited to two 35mm slides or two frames of 35mm film at a time. Slow.

Review: ScanJet G3110 flatbed scanner


If you're in the market for an affordable photo scanner with the ability to capture accurate color and detail, along with the occasional slide or film scan, the HP Scanjet G3110 is worth considering.

The G3110 has a dark gray body and a shiny and curved, off-white lid. Four buttons built into the lid allow you to scan to file, PDF, to email or to a printer (copy). The transparency adapter allows you to scan a single 35mm filmstrip or four...

HP G3010 review


The HP G3010 scanner offers 4800 x 9600 DPI resolution, enough for slides and negatives as well as photos.

Reasonable reflective scans, well constructed

Extremely slow film scans, awkward control software

Works also with Windows 10


Robust and sturdy, it's been working for more than five years. The installer, as well as the scanning software, also works on Windows 10.

Good Value; So-So Features


Product is reasonably priced, easy to set up and recommended for those reasons. Scanning software features not as easy to use as those of my previous Scanjet 4400c, which is not supported by Windows 7. User Guide is inaccurate for adjusting settings,...

Best thing for preserving 35mm Kodakchrom slides


I have hundreds of old 35mm Kodakchrome slides that capture precious family moments for decades going back to the 1960s. This is the best device I found to save them electronically. It is a little awkward to use, and the process isn't quick. It can...
