Great little scanner

 

I wore this little scanner out, but it paid for itself ten times over. I scanned in THOUSANDS of slides and negatives, and the quality was great. I adjusted my settings, and then just had to move a picture over and press a button and the machine did...

easy to use, lightweight, great for slides and 35mm negatives

slow when using digital ice

Pacific Image PrimeFilm 3650U (film scanner, 35 mm)

 

Consumer review by:

It's relatively good.

 

This is great for people who want to transfer their slides/35mm films on to digital formats. I recommend.

Came with semi-pro software like Photoshop Elements, it's high resolution, it's a clean design, it works easily

Kinda slow

Consumer review by:

average and compact

 

easy to use and learn

it has difficulty scanning black & white images

Consumer review by:

Good Value, weak resolution

 

A method of scanning multiple slides (like you do film strips) would be helpful

Easy to use ; Good Value ; Photoshop Included ; Small Footprint

Poor Dark Resolution ; Slow ; Tedious Loading

Consumer review by:

Good making digital photos from 35mm

 

So far this has been a great little investment. I have been able to scan old 35mm film and have digital photos. Not the highest resolution on the market, but it does a really good job.

Small and portable

Decent scanner for the money

 

Very nice entry level scanner at a great price (~$50). No moving parts to break is a benefit. However, I feel the sharpness of the images could have been better. My Nikon Coolscan III (rated at 2700 dpi) produced much higher clarity images than this...

Good entry level scanner

Lacks Sharpness

Product Specifications

The PrimeFilm 3650u is a value-priced film scanner with high optical resolution and Digital ICE3.This film scanner is a high resolution upgrade to the company's basic model, and is designed for the hobbyist or photography enthusiast who is looking for image enhancement features and easy handling of large image files. The inclusion of Digital ICE3 by ASF (Kodak Austin Development Center) allows the user to digitally clean, correct and restore film images to optimize the image quality. The PF3650u operates at 3600dpi optical resolution, which produces a digital image of approximately 17.9 million pixels (3, 456 X 5, 184). An LED light source is used, versus a CCFL (cold cathode florescent light) to assure consistent and exact color conformity in scans. With a 3.2 dynamic range, 48-bit color capability and 3600 X 3600 dpi optical resolution, the PF3650u is capable of producing a high quality scanned image of up to 10" x 14". The unit, which is lightweight (2.2 pounds) and measures just 2 3/4 X 6 5/8 X 11 inches, connects via the USB port to any Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows XP or Power Mac G3 or later system. The PF3650u is equipped with a USB 2.0 interface and back-end support for USB 1.1, the system used for both PC and Macintosh. The USB 2.0 interface allows data transfer as fast as 480MB per second, which is comparable to transfer speeds using an IEEE1394 interface.
