Works well enough with the right App!
on April 5, 2014
I am a professional photographer who is used to using pro scanners that cost thousands of dollars. I received this as a gift to scan personal old vacation photos.
I was incredibly disappointed when I tried using this product with the Lomo Scanning App. Low quality, hard to control the app, awful pixelation, no focus, I could go on and on. I was tempted to blame the device. But once I read other reviews, it occurred to me to search for a different iPhone app. 4 apps later I found...
FPS (Film Photo Scanner) for FREE!
Compared to the Lomo app, this app is fast, simple, effective, and most importantly, my photos were not pixelated and they were also in focus. I could care less about color correction because that is something you can always fix with another app (I recommend Pic Tap Go) or in Photoshop, but this app's ability to fix color was also impressive.
So while this review may seem less about the Lomo product than the FPS app, all this is really to say that it's a neat little gadget if you just want simple scans for a backup or posterity or to share on Instagram easily!
But definitely only use the FPS app with it on iPhone (also used all three spacers with the iPhone 5).
