Top Customer Reviews
* [Update June 2014 - Autostitch is now in there and produces great results!] Although the software is great, it doesn't yet have the auto-stitch feature enabled, which they stated as a feature.
* It doesn't autocrop the blank space around the photos. [Update June 2014 - use the Doxie software to do autocropping - much easier.]
* It chews through batteries and there's no optional power connector. Admittedly I've been using the heck out of it. So invest in some rechargeables...!
[Update June 2014 -- I've upgraded my review to 5 stars! What a great little product.]
The scanner's max scan size is 4 x 6 which is about what your typical photo is. If you're scanning something larger (say a larger image or pages of text) you can take multiple scans of the object and using Doxie's software, stitch the scans into one image.
The scanner uses SD cards to store scanned images and is supplied with a 4GB card. This will handle about 2000+ images depending on resolution. Speaking of resolution, the scanner can scan images in either a 300 or 600 dpi resolution. 300 is good for scanning text while 600 is good to use for images. You can also adjust the sleep timer of the scanner between 1, 2 and 10 minutes. That's essentially the extent of what's configurable.
The scanner is powered by four AA batteries and you can use rechargeables which may be a good idea as depending on use the scanner can eat up batteries. It is supplied with batteries right out of the box so it's ready for use.
Overall, the scanner takes good scans whether they're in 300 or 600 dpi resolution. I haven't noticed anything wrong with what I've been scanning with it so far. The only gripe is the scanner has limited functionality onboard for editing scanned images. For instance, an essential missing feature is to delete scans you don't want. You can only review what you have scanned, if you want to delete something you have to do it on a computer. Another item is the inability to abort a scan that's in progress. Due to the placement of the scan button it's possible to inadvertently press it and you can't stop the scan.
º Optical/Hardware Resolution: 600 dpi.
º Scan Speed: 7 seconds at 300 dpi; 15 seconds at 600 dpi.
º File Format: JPG at 92% quality.
º Minimal scanning features (a plus in my opinion).
º 110 MB (as of this review)
º Must be downloaded from Doxie site.
º Can only be used with image files created by Doxie scanners (i.e., proprietory).
º Very basic and limited functionality (a plus in my opinion).
Overall, I am happy with my purchase. There really is no another device in the market niche to compare with it since this is the only product in the "standalone, portable flatbed scanner" platform. And I don't think it is useful to compare it with your run-of-the-mill flatbed scanners nor with sheetfed scanners. It would be like comparing a pickup truck with a dump truck or with a utility van. Each has been engineered to excel at certain tasks but--while it's possible to accomplish others with it--will do so less desirably and even poorly at others.*
SOME THINGS I'VE LEARNED
1. Some reviewers have remarked about the scanner's limited features but these really are the Doxie Flip's strong points. The scanner and software are very, very easy to use. Once you've set up the date you're pretty much ready to start scanning. Switching between resolution depths is a matter of 3 clicks. I am confident that I can explain over the phone to my 85-year old grandmother how to "get the pictures into the flashcard".
2. Scan settings on the Doxie are limited to resolutions of 300 and 600 dpi. These are good compromises for cost, complexity, portability, and purpose. My guess is that higher resolution optics would increase the price and overall hardware-software design complexity. Besides, a capture resolution of 300 dpi is sufficient for a 1:1 reproduction. At 600 dpi, you'll have adequate detail for enlargements.
3. There is no option for alternative file formats. The Doxie saves files in only JPG format.** However the JPG file is created at 92% quality so, while you lose a few details, the captured image is more than adequate for your average home user. My long term solution to the JPG file-format is to immediately make all of the images created by the Doxie Flip "Read-Only" once they're saved onto my computer.
4. Scans from my Doxie Flip are "cool" and the colors appear washed out. But basic processing features in the Doxie software can be used to increase the contrast and color saturation (make the colors richer). As a general practice when I'm scanning pictures for archival, I scan using the scanner's hardware defaults anyway and then use image editing software to tweak the captured image.
5. The Doxie software is efficient and runs with a small footprint. I was able to "stitch" together eight 600 dpi scans of separate sections of a DVD cover into a single image. Having worked with Photoshop and other image editing programs, I was concerned about the length of time it would take but, on a 4-year old Intel Centrino-powered laptop, the Doxie app completed the task in under 2 minutes.
* Each scanner platform (flatbed, sheetfed, portable/mobile) has been designed for a specific sector of the document imaging domain. I use an older sheetfed scanner (Fujitsu fi-5120c) when I need to quickly scan a large volume of office documents and a 13-year old flatbed (Epson Epxression 836XL with a transparency unit) to archive pictures and documents. There is an all-in-one HP printer sitting next to my PC that I use to quickly scan a few sheets without firing up the computer. The Doxie Flip will be used for occasions when I cannot bring the media back to my home to be scanned.
** JPG is known as a "lossy" file compression format resulting in degradation of image details with each file iteration. In other words, as you open a JPG to work on it and then save it over itself (the older file) the successive versions are less detailed.
