Scans negatives like poop


For photos, this scanner is ok, but for negatives the scanned images were so muddy, you couldn't tell what the heck you were looking at!

Just try to scan 35mm slides


Impossible to scan 35m slides without a lot of guessing and hacking.You can only do it from within Photo Shop and you have to put in the Transparency Mask upside down.Good Luck!!!

Not a good buy.


I use Vista Home Premium and have gotten the best possible drivers for this thing. It's flaky and inconsistent and the only thing I'd recommend trying to scan anything in with is the color copy, because it negates the photo fixing and is honestly the...

It was somewhat cheap where I got it and it does scan several sizes

The "photo fixing" actually did more damage to the scanned images than I was able to easily repair in my photo editor. I ended up trying to scan them in as a color copy and crop them, THEN work on trying to sort out fixing them. I looked for a way to...
