This is the portable device that preserves cherished slides and film negatives at 9 megapixel resolution without being tethered to a computer or electrical outlet. Slides (35mm) and negatives (110 and 135) are placed into a tray that aligns each properly when it is inserted into the converter. The touch of a button captures the image in 3-5 seconds as a JPEG file that can be immediately previewed on the built-in 2 1/2" TFT color display and stored onto an SD memory card (8 GB card sold below stores over 10,000 pictures). You can transfer images to a PC running Windows 7, Vista, or XP, or a Mac via the included USB cable (or remove your SD card). You can also connect it directly to a TV to view the conversion process or your converted images. Its 9 MP CMOS sensor provides 3328 x 2216 resolution, automatic exposure control, and color balance, resulting in clear digital images without loss of quality. Its rechargeable battery provides up to three hours of operation from a three-hour charge using the included AC adapter (or a six-hour charge via USB). Includes photo editing software that allows optional manipulation of converted digital photos. 6 1/2" H x 4 1/4" W x 4 1/4" D. (1 lb.)

I ordered this as a Christmas present for my elderly parents, with the understanding that I would do the slide processing for them. I have processed about 200 slides so far and I am very pleased with the device's performance. The resulting images are remarkably clear, and the simple-click editing possible with the included software is good enough for our purposes. (And I'm sure there are many more complicated editing options that I have not explored!) I haven't used it enough to really know if it will prove to be durable or reliable in the long term. On the negative side, placing the slides in the tray is fiddly work, and requires a fair degree of manual dexterity (older, arthritic fingers would probably have difficulties). The slide tray feels flimsy, and even though it has not broken or jammed I keep thinking it is about to...
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Simi Valley, CA
Easy to set up and use; resolution is good. Very happy with how it converts old slides to digital to share with family on cd!
good copies some color correction needed
from Auburn, CA
Makes fast sharp copies but, at least on my old slides it has a purple tint. Color correction is easily accomplished with photo program. For the price and my usage (archive old family slides) it works great. I bought the extra slide package but things go so fast with just the one set that so far I have not opened the package. Not perfect but better than my old scanner and much faster and easier.
Better than expected!
By Best Daughter-in-Law Ever
from Stoughton, MA
I purchased this item to convert my in-laws' old slides to CD. They lived in southern Africa for several decades and have done many presentations about their time there however haven't viewed most of their slides for quite some time. I was very happy to see how quickly it captures an image as they have literally hundreds! It is very easy to use and quite small. I know other reviews noted that it seemed flimsy but it does what it claims and I appreciate the light weight. I LOVE IT!!
First review I have ever written
from Sacramento, CA
Really easy to use. Great way to preserve memories from old family slides. Once I downloaded to my computer, I used my photo software to clean up, crop, lighten up, etc. Well worth the money.
Directions are poor. Even trying to open
from Canton. Ma
I am very disappointed in this product. Bought it so my husband could view his slides of his service time in Korea thought it would be simple. To operate. It is anything but. Simple. Very. Disappointed
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

not suitable for Mac as advertised
By Desert Joe
from La Quinta CA
Screen is too small to view for editing or selection without computer connection which is not possible with a MAC. System appears to be configured for PC only.
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for your response. The Cordless Slide And Negative To Digital Picture Converter can transfer images to a Mac via the included USB cable or via your SD card.

Simple,efficient,easy to use.
from Kingwood, TX
Decided to digitize a sizable library of slides and negatives and write them to DVDs as a gift to my family. Around 5000 images plus or minus. The final product is for display on a computer screen or TV and did not need extreme resolution. It will probably be a 2 year project. This converter certainly makes the project simpler and faster, with very acceptable imagery.
Great product. Far excedes others.
By God's servant
I would prefer being able to view slides on a computer screen before editing. I don't have a TV monitor available and it is difficult to see dust and smudges on the slides in the small viewing screen of the scanner. But it still excedes, by far, what I have tried before.

Hold the slides when closing the lid as they sometimes get pushed forward and then the lid does not fully close on one end or the other.
