The set-up is easy and easy to use. I had hundreds of slide taken in the fifties and have kept them all of this time wondering how to convert them. Then I found this machine on line. It converted all of the slides without any problem what so ever. The only thing it needs is a magnifying cover to go over the 2 1/2 inch viewing screen. I was not able to tell if the slides were in backward until I moved them to the computer and viewed them full screen. Because of that I had to convert some of them again with the slide turned around. This machine couldn't get any easier to use and accurate. Very pleased.

I thought this would be an economical alternative to the somewhat more expensive photo, slide, and negative scanners produced by HP and Epson. I wish I'd spent fifty or a hundred dollars more and bought one of those other scanners. That said, for the home user who doesn't know DPI from ISP and doesn't care, this scanner works fine. It's dead simple to set up and start scanning your film and slides. It takes a snapshot of the film and produces a digital image that is probably adequate for most people. I used it to scan a large collection of family slides and film negatives from the sixties to the eighties, and I am not personally satisfied with the results. Unfortunately, the actual photo contained within a 35mm cardboard slide sleeve was not always a standard size. I had some slides in a weird format called "Pana-Vue" and I could not scan those with the included slide adapter because the frame cut off the edges of the picture. I also had some slides with pictures that were much smaller, probably shot with 110 film. I couldn't scan these, either. Even more standard size 35mm slides often had the problem where anything at the edge of the picture was cut off by the frame. Sometimes that means a person looks like they were the victim of a terrible photographer who cropped half their body out.

Another problem was the inability to tinker with the picture quality settings. DPI is fixed and immutable. Also, many of my slides had blue or red tinting due to age. It would have been nice to be able to fix that using the hardware, rather than having to go to a software solution. It does have the ability to rotate or flip images, which is useful.

To make this product better I'd suggest the following: a slide and film adapter frame with a thinner edge, so as not to crop non-standard formats; a more robust control panel for those who want to change the scan settings; and perhaps the ability to select from several different DPI settings.

      • Hard To Open Slide Tray

      Best Uses

        Comments about iConvert® Instant Slide & Negative Scanner:

        This Scanner is very easy to use and produces images that are of the same quality as the original slide.
        The Scanner screen tends to display some images more sharply than others even though the quality of the slides being scanned are of equal sharpness, but the ultimate scanned image is fine.
        The slide tray is a bit difficult to open, which slows the whole process down.

          Comments about iConvert® Instant Slide & Negative Scanner:

          I have boxes of old Extachrome slides which have a larger slide area than the standard slide. The scanner cuts the heads off people or leaves out the people on the sides. Also, the final saved picture quality is not as good as the slide or as it shows on the scanner. It looks better as a slide than it does as a computer saved picture.

                Bought this for my retired father, to give him a project while recovering from an illness. For a not-so tech savvy man...he had 500 of our old negatives and slides done in a few days!! He even took the SD card to CVS to print some of the photos! It's fun to see those old memories come alive again.

                              good quality digital pics from slides. but with only doing 4 slides at a time, it's a bit labor intensity. well worth the effort though.
