KODAK FD300 Advanced Photo System (APS) Scanner

 

Despite its quirks and annoyances (see below), it works very well. I'm chuffed to bits to resurrect these images into modern Photo editing applications! The unit along with the quick scanning software does a pretty fantastic job of scanning APS ...

FD-300 cool if cheap

 

I've had this scanner for two years and scanned many rolls

Magic in the Box

 

I absolutely love my APS cameras and have dozens of film cassette holders full of film cartridges to prove it. They take great photos in 3 different formats. The problem was that I was suddenly getting hip to web page design and wanted an easier way to...

Kodak FD300

 

The Kodak FD300 is an APS film scanner. The quality of the images scanned is great. The new upgraded software for batch processing of film is a needed improvement. Also it is a steal compared to the prices of the other APS film scanners. The draw...
