Good for quick scans

 

Works easily and quickly to scan slides and film. My first run with it images seem to have quite a bit of contrast but for sharing on social media this is fine. Will still have a lab do my more critical work for making nice prints.

Great Negative Scanner

 

Once I got set up, it was easy to use. Quality is decent. Recommend that before scanning, use the tool given with this device to clean the dust particles off the negatives.

Tried 3 others scanners. This one works

 

We have been trying to scan our parents old slides on to the computer. This is the fourth scanner that we have tried. This one is working out great for us. Pretty fast and easy to use.
