VuPoint Solutions FC-C520-VP Digital Film and Slide Converter, Black


This product is a pile of JUNK. I've been trying to get it working since last Christmas. The software installs, but doesn't work. This is the 2nd one I've had (a replacement). The display doesn't come on half the time when plugged in. Don't waste your...

Unsure of product


I have a couple hundred very old family slides I wanted to convert to digital pictures. The slides were converted to negatives and stored on my SD card. I was unable to convert the negative pictures to positive pictures either due to my not knowing...

Does the job


Does a pretty good job of inputing the slides. Software supplied leaves a lot to be desired. Picsa from Google works well with the imported slides.

A fly in the ointment


I thought this was working very well, then I noticed that 18 of the 100 slides I'd scanned had a colored band near the bottom. The VuPoint people were very helpful, but said nothing could be done. This especially happens with Kodachrome slides. So, I...

Great Idea, marginal results


This product may be okay for you if you only want "amateur snapshot" results. Pros: Uses standard SD card, good color reproduction, scans mounted 35mm slides into standard jpeg file. Cons: Crops original image on right and left sides, position #1 of...

Much better than a scanner


I have copied several hundred old slides and it did a very good job. Following the instructions was hard at first but after using it for a short time it became eaiser. The only problem is that the instructions tell you to clean the lens periodically...

VuPoint FC-C50-VP-BX2 Digital slide converter


I purchased the VuPoint digital slide converter from Bed, Bath, and Beyond for less than $90 with a coupon. My plan is to convert about 560 slides to digital images as part of a historical archiving project. The instrument comes with software by...

Simple to use and reasonable cost, images are very comparable to projected images

1st position on the frame is sloppy, not so easy to load/unload the frame

Using this product to convert all my old photos to digital. It works great. I'm putting together a 'memories' digital album for all my kids. It's a time consuming process, but the VuPoint works as fast as you do. I recommend buying additional trays so...

Consumer review by: asby (



It is fast but the quality is a lot worse than a flatbed scanner. I was not able to use it with ArcSoft PhotoImpression software because it is very limited. All colors are off (unless you like purple). I accidently discovered that it works FSViewer...
