Worked below desired expectations due to the issues below. I sent the unit back due to poor design of the function I needed most, slide digitizing.

Likes:
1) Does not scan, but rather takes a digital picture of the film picture, which is near instantaneous. I have read scanning is better, but it is also much slower. I have a lot of slides.

2) Small and compact compared to large flat bed scanner.

Dislikes:
1) 35mm Slides do not sit flat in the tray. Instead they are pinched at the center from both sides which allow them to be at an angle relative to the camera inside the unit. Very poor design which results in some pics being out of focus. Don't know why they don't have it spring loaded on one side and flat on the other. Although I didn't use the negative tray, it looks like it would work well and had magnets to keep closed.

2) Can't view the image on your computer in real time, instead relying on tiny and low res LCD. The problem is that you can't easily see dust or in my case, part of image being out of focus due to problem above. Dust proves to be a problem that must be identified prior to moving on to the next slide, or at least the next set of slides. The dust has to be cleared and then rescanned.

I am contemplating just sending slides off for professional scanning if I can't find another (most likely more expensive unit) here on Amazon. Good luck!

I have an Epson Perfection V330 flat bed scanner with a negative tray attachment. The flat bed works but I wanted to get something more specialized for my wife to use to scan all of our film negatives. Well the after scanning several negatives the results were not near as good as the flat bed, so I returned it.

While this device may be less cumbersome, it did not give me better or equal results to cheaper flat bed scanner. When scanning negative, I know I want the best results because I do NOT want to scan again. I would rather do them once then store them.

I bought the machine as a test to look into scanning the thousands of film negatives my parents and I built up over decades. I've scanned about 500 images. The scanner was wonderfully simple to set up for negative scanning, and I got to work right away. Everything worked incredibly quickly until I got to image #150 or so -- the scanning process slowed down, taking about twice the time to scan, and then stayed that way for all the other images. I'm not sure if it effected the color or not - I haven't yet looked at each scan.

The main problem I had with it is that in order to get clean scans I had to painstakingly brush off each negative for dust particles -- and even then, dust still managed to get scanned. I'm slowly going through each picture using Adobe Photoshop to correct the blemishes, which is incredibly time consuming. I would imagine that scanning the pictures themselves would result in better quality.

So, I pretty much got what I expected, though I was disappointed by the dust issues. Perhaps if it was built with a dust-blower inside the machine.... but oh well. If you don't mind going through each picture pixel by pixel, this is a great little thing that does as advertised.

Basically, know what you're getting into - unfortunately, home scanners can't compete with professional jobs.

Like many of you, my Dad took all our family photos on 35mm slides. Slides are vulnerable to damage, deteriorate over time, and subject to tug-of-wars between siblings over who gets to keep the slides. The solution was to scan them. I've got approx. 3000 slides to scan. Lucky for me, my Dad was meticulous in keeping the slides clean + in good shape. I started with Innovative Technologies Film & Slide Scanner but had trouble with the drivers and it just stopped communicating with my computer. It appears IT doesn't have any tech support and I just didn't have the time to mess with it. It was a gift so fortunately I didn't waste money on it. I found this Honestech, read everyones' reviews + went ahead and bought one. Here's my experience/review:

1. If the slides are in good shape (clean, undamaged), this device works fine. If the slides are dirty/dusty, you'll get dirty/dusty scanned images. If the cardboard frames are damaged, you'll need to flatten them out so they'll slide into the slideholder. If your slides have metal frame protectors (2x2 "ready mounts"), they WILL fit in the slideholder. It's snug but they will fit. You don't have to remove the ready-mount frames.

2. I'm not creating works of art and don't expect professional quality from a $100+ scanner. I'm archiving family photos and the image quality appears very good. Perfect? no. Professional looking? no. My Dad was not a professional photographer and I'm not a professional photo handler. The images are just fine for family photos + memories. There are controls for brightness, resolution, and rotation to turn sideways photos upright. You'd probably need something like photoshop to touchup the photos, remove redeye, etc. IF you are so inclined. I will NOT be doing photo touchups for 3000 images.
