1) The software doesn't like Windows 10 (I couldn't get it to work at all) and on the Mac it randomly closes without warning. Thankfully you can resume where you left off (just remember to update the info.ini file first or you will lose everything).
2) The film gets 'stuck' a lot. Old film isn't perfect and sometimes the alignment is a little off, but the software thinks the film is stuck and forces the scanner to stop. When you restart you end up missing a few frames as it tries to realign. Then it gets 'stuck' again. There is no override for this, you are stuck with whatever tolerance is built into the app.
3) It is slow. A single roll of film (50 feet) takes about 2.5 hours to scan. Generally this would not be an issue if you could set it and let it scan but because of the issues stated above, you have to check on the scanner every once and a while. Or baby it when the film constantly gets 'stuck'.
4) No options to overscan. After comparing the output to the original film, there is (what I would consider to be) a significant portion of the frame cropped off. Generally this won't be an issue for someone just wanting a simple digital conversion, but if you're picky about quality, this scanner is not for you.
Overall, for the money you pay, I would expect a device with a lot less problems and options to override/manually adjust the tolerance or frame size. In general I am happy with the videos I managed to convert. With all the issues I definitely would NOT recommend to the casual user. You'll need to be good at problem solving and patience.
Results are mixed.
The Reflecta will stick on some aging splices which is to be expected I guess. Most troubling is the final results that have many long periods of frozen frames. Closer inspection shows maybe hundreds of frame that are identical in the jpg folder. (You need to copy these folders before combining if you want to save for later use or review, the combine process deletes the individual jpg frames)
It appears you can only adjust the frame once, if it gets out of sync in progress of capturing you have to force a stop to try to correct.
Reflecta will respond to emails asking for troubleshooting help and we might be able to repair.
I have noticed many times there is apparent disconnect between the hardware unit and the software running on the PC. Resetting, calibration and so on sometimes takes many trials of power recycling and removing the film. There are sensors and micro switches that seem to get stuck and flags then set in the software that are hard to clear even if the hardware has been cleared and only a complex pattern of powering off and removing the film to clear the sensors seems to work. I was advised on one occasion I needed to return the unit for calibration of a frame sensor only to learn after a few more attempts to reset I got past the assumed hardware problem.
I am going to have to invest a lot more time quality checking these results. I may have to redo many of them which puts more strain on fragile splices that may have worked once but might fail on repeated attempts.
I found no other product to do the same and to pay someone for this would be highway robbery due to the extensive labor and time it takes to process just one reel, let alone I have almost 15.
I am not saying don't buy it, just be prepared for a massive investment of your time. I'd like to see upgrades in the software hardware handshake. There needs to be added ways to reset or clear flags without all the gymnastics of trial and error that are needed now. More quality check utilities are needed. A tool to find duplicate images will be helpful. Ability to auto contract auto brightness in the combine steps might help, I assume those things are now done in the capture process. More help seeing into this "black box" would help too. You see I am making assumptions that may be wrong but have no way of knowing except after extensive trial and error.
