anyway other details:
I couldn't get Vuescan to show it's Batch feature. So it's useless for this scanner, though it works for the regular scanning features (maybe it'll be updated soon :). Same thing with Silverfast or what ever its name is.
Out of 300 scans I've had 1 jam and 3 failure to feed (could'nt grab the photo but managed with a little help). The jam was simple; just open the lid and remove the photo that's on the glass and pull back the incoming photo about half an inch. In other words, I'm not too worried about it damaging my photos. One anoyance is that dust accumulates on the glass after a some 40 scans (more or less depending on how clean your pictures are). Good luck with your research. Got to go, about 3000 scans to go.
Now on my 2000th scan I can add a few things.
-Some types of Black & White prints fail to feed. So I have to push each one an extra 1/4" for the feeder to grab it; after that all is well.
-You can keep on stacking as it scans but I chose not to do it b/c I'm concerned about overheating something. So I let it rest a minute or less.
-The feeder has a fan that is quite loud. I don't know what it's for but would guess it flattens the photograph to the scanner's glass.
-Warped photos WILL jam inside. Nothing serious, but it interrupts the flow. All of my 25+ year old photos have this problem because they were peeled off albums.
Ok, back to work...
It's about time that one of the big players released a scanner with auto-feed capability to scan photos effortlessly at a reasonable price.
The scanner itself produces very nice scans and is a compitent piece of hardware. The real gem however is the feeder lid which has made scanning my collection of photos a breeze. No jams, no damage to the photos, and no hassle. Just drop a batch of up to 25 photos in the feed mechanism and go have a snack while the scanner does all the work. The included software does everything you need it to do - adjust color, crop, rotate, or remove red-eye - all with an easy to use interface.
Only downsides were that the installation process was a bit messy (it does the job, but seems to be 4 software installation processes in one) and that the auto-feed mechanism can't accomodate 5x7's.
If you have a bunch of photo albums around and want to take your memories digital, this is the scanner for you.
I've been looking for an automatic scanner since I began - one with a photo sheet feeder. I've considered a few, but the reviews all seemed to indicate jamming problems.
When I saw this one for $169, I gave it a shot.
It works incredibly well. The photo feeder will pull in up to 24 pics, scan and eject them. You can define the folders and the scan quality for the process. With photos that are in good condition, I have not had a single jam - very impressive.
A number of photos I have were in albums, and after removing them are curled. The feeder did take these in too, but with occassional jamming.
The automatic feeder in general though is very impressive.
The process is not fast - probably about a minute per print. So this is not something to sit and wait for. Do something else and then come back to add prints, or set it up to do a stack at night.
The scan qualities are very good. Color and sharpness are fine. The quality of the scan is dependent on the quality of the original of course, so expectations can't be too high for pics taken 30 yrs ago on 126 cartridge film. (Remember that?)
I've also scanned using the flat bed - this works very well too. If you put multiple prints on the glass, and separate them with some space, the software will recognize them and scan them in as separate images.
Slide scans are very good - but only 2 at a time.
One note - the sheet feeder is an entirely separate cover for the scanner. To switch between flat bed scanning and sheet feeder, you have to switch these covers. Very simple to do though, and not an issue.
Altogether, this is very versatile, with good scan quality and I highly recommend it.
