I had to get a scanner for work, and since this was so inexpensive, we ordered it. I was stunned when I found out how easy it was to scan slides -- and I could actually look at them and clean them up before I hit the scan button. It was so simple, and the color quality was excellent, once I made adjustments to each slide (which I have to do with my more expensive scanner, anyway, and not with nearly as good results). This scanner took maybe 2 minutes a slide, including all the color and sharpness adjustments. Maybe it's a fluke that mine worked so well, but I have to say I think it's wonderful!
First of all, the scanner is a plastic box used as a housing for a small webcam. The Chinese did not sneak into your computer and plant a webcam to gain you infinite knowledge.
The webcam is mounted and focused to a specific point where the negative or slide should be. In the bottom of the housing is white LED lights that will shine light through your slide or negative so the webcam can see what to focus on.The other part of this scanner is the carrier. The carrier comes apart and has small plastic spike spaced evenly to match the winding holes on 35mm film. The carrier slides into the side of the main housing between the webcam and the LED lights.
After you install the software and connect the scanner, You need to restart your computer. When it restarts, double click on the QplayCap icon on your desktop.
The first thing the software did was default to my Logitech webcam, so if you have a webcam already on your system it may do the same. If this happens, click on the word "Devices" in the software's menu/Tool bar. A window will pop up with the name of your webcam and something called SMI USB 2.0 WebCam... choose the SMI webcam. It is a 2MP cam produced by Silicon Motion Inc.
You will now see in the window a picture of your slide or negative. Move the carrier back and forth to center the photo you want to capture.
As the instructions tell you, if you don't have steady hands and you depress the button on top of the box it can blur the image. Since I don't have extremely steady hands, I followed the instructions and left clicked on the picture of the camera on the toolbar. If you hover your mouse over this picture a tool tip balloon pops up and says "Snapshot Hotkey: Ctrl-S".Read more ›
The scanned images are distorted versions of the originals and no amount of creative digital fixing can save them. Initially I thought all my negatives were damaged until the slides scanned in the same poor quality, and those show properly in a slide viewer.
I purchased this in hopes of helping my dad with a large project of turning about 3000 slides into digital images. Although I can look at the slides and see they are completely clear pictures, this scanner was only able to clearly scan the center of the pictures. The edges looked awful. In some cases, blurring out people so much that if you had not seen the original slide, you would have no idea who was in the picture. Complete waste of money.

It does copy negatives and slides to your computer. The software that comes with it also handles a video camera which is useless on this unit. Read morePublished on March 8, 2013 by Donald H. Banks
