Product Description

The Flip-Pal mobile scanner enables you to effortlessly collect precious photos, important documents, fragile records of personal and family history, detailed coins, jewelry, medals, hand-drawn art, and other keepsakes. Now they can be safely stored digitally rather than scattered, lost or unable to be found. Then create your story and connect with family and friends. Take advantage of the patented flip-and-scan technology to scan photos while still in the album or frame, treating fragile personal records gently. The Easy Stitch software quickly and automatically reassembles multiple scans into their larger original. Unlike alternative solutions that don't have the combination of mobility, simplicity, accuracy, versatility, and keeping the original safe, the Flip-Pal mobile scanner is compact, simple to operate, has high resolution, quick scan time, battery power, SD memory, and a computer is not required to scan. When it really matters, like your children's early years of precious memories, preparing for natural disaster, creating a high quality scrapbook, or collecting one-of-a-kind fragile documents for your family history, Flip-Pal produces the accurate image quality you will need in the future. With 600 and 300 dpi resolutions and colors and textures that are true to original, your important documents and images are safeguarded forever in digital format, protected from loss from disasters and misfortune.

I ordered one of these 2 months before they were ready to ship. I had been looking for something like this for at least two years to take with me to the library to scan references. I am 64 and have problems with the nerves in my hands that make my handwriting degenerate quickly - and I hate standing in line for the scanner when I could be doing more research. My Flip-Pal takes care of that and more. I scan the references, take them home and put them into the computer with the micro card, and then... the trick ... I run it through my OCR program, and it's typed automatically into my file. With a little comparative editing, I'm done.

It is possible to use the wand scanner in a similar fashion. I have one, I've compared them.
The Flip-Pal allows you to see what you are scanning. The Wand doesn't.
The wand type will do an entire letter size sheet at once. The Flip-Pal only scans 1/3 to 1/2 a page at a time, but you can fix that in the computer.
The Flip-Pal has a little screen that lets you see that you got a good scan. The wand type doesn't and lets you go home thinking you have a load of material only to find that much of it is bad.
The Flip-Pal scans every time, just like a big scanner. The wand type sometimes has to be used several times just to get one to work.

I found the wand frustrating and have found the Flip-Pal a joy.
And it has all those other uses, too. And Pictures that aren't distorted. I'm quitting. I would be here all night telling you how great it is.

I got my flip-pal scanner last week in the first shipment of this wonderful new product! I have been using it this week while on a visit to out of state family. I have been able to scan over 100 of old, old family photos in less than an hour while they were still in the frames and matting! It is so fast and easy I could not believe it. The scanner is light and portable and fits easily in my airline carry on. This scanner has allowed me to save and share family photos that would otherwise be lost to most of the family. I am thrilled with this product that can also perform normal scanning and can scan 3D items too.

No, I am not affiliated with the company in any way -- I wish I was though since this venture is sure to be a success! It is the best! They market it for family history scanning but it has a million business and personal uses too. Scan old recipe cards or favorite recipes in cookbooks so you don't have to type it in the computer. Make a record of your family jewelry, medals, important documents for insurance and legal purposes and whatever you choose with ease. I love this thing!

I read several reviews of the Flip-Pal on various sites. I started scanning old photos as soon as it arrived and the FlipPal is as easy and as great as everyone said it was. My dad was a tail gunner in England in WW2 and kept a mission diary. I am putting together a book of his experiences by incorporating his photos with his text. Many of the pictures were faded, but the color restore feature made them much easier to see. The "stitch" feature is amazing. By making several scans of a large photo, the easy to use program "stitches" them together seamlessly. It helps to leave a good size border around the multiple scans so it makes a crisp edge on the final picture. I will watch to see if this company makes any other products in the future because this one is amazing.

I saw the info on this in August at a Genealogy conference and wanted one immediately. I finally talked myself into waiting to see what the reviews were and all the "kinks" were worked out. All the reviews I read, both here and in other places were nothing but positive so I decided to take the plunge!

I LOVE that the Flip-Pal is ready to go right out of the box! I was scanning within a minute of opening the package! I had 3 albums of pictures that I had attempted to scan at various times over the past couple of years but gave up because it was SO TIME CONSUMING--take them out of the album, line them up on the scanner (3-4 at a time), wait for them to scan, open the file up in Photoshop, align them properly, crop, name and save them, rinse and repeat! UGH! With the Flip-Pal, ALL I had to do was take off the cover, flip the scanner over onto the album, hit the button, and repeat for the next picture!

The included USB adapter was a lifesaver I didn't even know I needed! Since I mainly shoot with an SLR that takes Compact Flash cards, I had forgotten that my SD card reader had stopped working. So after scanning all of my albums I went to load the pictures onto the computer and realized that I couldn't--I didn't have a working reader. JUST before I panicked, I suddenly remembered the little usb drive that I had so casually tossed aside when I opened the Flip-Pal--DUH! I was back in business in no time!

I have used the stitch program on a 16x20 photograph that I scanned and it worked EXACTLY as promised! Since I have Photoshop, I will probably use its stitch function instead, but its nice to know that the included program works well (and I can use it when I'm away from home on someone else's computer).

I have "sold" 3 of these to friends and family already and will continue to toot the Flip-Pal horn! I'm a shopper and this is my BEST PURCHASE in quite awhile! I hope they make a larger version soon!
