Convert Slides and Negatives to digital images easily
July 3, 2007 | In: Scanning Equipment
The Digital Picture Converter offers one of the easiest ways to convert old-school 35mm slides and film negatives into a digital format.
There are other alternatives to do this task, like using a normal scanner or a commercial service, but those are expensive and/or take a lot of time.
How does it work:
Slides and negatives are placed into a tray that aligns each properly; the touch of a button scans the image instantly.
It has a 5MP CMOS sensor that provides 10 bits per color channel for data conversion, and uses fixed focus and automatic exposure control and color balance, resulting in clear digital images without loss of resolution.
Of course it uses the USB power from your computer as power, and it also works to transfer the photos to the PC. Additionally, it comes with custom software that lets you edit the images.
