Rapid Feed Slide Converter
from western Masachusetts
I use this device with paper-mount 35 mm slides. The images and the exposure control are excellent, but the "Rapid Feeder" is just a clunky manual feed that often tries to feed two slides at once. The feeder is poorly designed and quite frustrating.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Hammacher Schlemmer Response: Thank you for your feedback. You will have to choose the correct slide size on the slider and slide the button to the correct thickness. If the wrong size chosen, it will jam. If you are ever disappointed with a product - for any reason - we request that you return it to us. Please call our customer service hotline at 1-800-321-1484 and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you.

Works as expected
from N. Illinois
The slide converter is what I suspected. It works good but is still time consuming as I expected. Being able to stack slides instead of putting in a tray of 4 or 5 at a time speeds things up somewhat. I have hundreds of slides to go through and have been able to go through about 300 so far.

needs tweaking, but saves time
By semi picky
from Tenino, WA
I have thousands and thousands of slides to digitize and have been slowly doing it for five years with a 4-slide frame design that is connected to my computer. Using this HS converter, I have been able to convert a thousand slides in days...while "watching" TV!Problems: Different film processors use different slide frames, and my Ektachrome and other cardboard frames with sharp corners (not rounded) are a tight fit. They don't fall down the "chute" freely and must be tamped down every other slide. If they are not tamped down evenly, a corner can get caught and they jam when you try to forward a slide. Slides processed by Fox Foto are plastic with rounded corners and work well.It would really be nice if there were an output containment shelf like slide viewers used to have. You can tell this model this was just a tweak to the old frame style converter--nothing was changed except to add a large capacity tray with the ability to forward slides. If it had been a true re-design, there would be integrated instructions--instructions are only for the 4-frame type trays. Supplementary instructions are in the box that holds the large capacity tray (not that you really need instructions to operate this converter). Also, the main instructions are not accurate. The buttons functions are slightly different from those indicated in the instructions.Summary: This needs a Generation II model, but the current one is way better than a 4-frame!

digital slide converter
from Port Angeles, WA
It is fast and reliable for slides haven't tried negatives yet but really happy with the ease of use. unfortunately I was unable to clean out the small line which may be lint but could blend it out.

Quick and versatile
from Summerfield, FL
I have a collection of slides that I copied in very little time which made the purchase very worthwhile. I find feeding the film carriers is not as smooth as the slides, but it functioned well, and I am pleased with the overall performance.
Simple and easy
I am not a computer expert but I can use this. It is quick and easy and the results are printable pictures.

from Buffalo, NY
This is awesome. I've converted old negatives from 110, 126, 35mm and slides we have never even seen before from years ago! Loving it. Wish it would accommodate the old box camera 818 negatives as we have a lot of those too. But this is great! Best purchase I've made. Worth every penny.

Good 35mm slide reproduction
from Essex, CT
The Rapid Feed Digital Slide Converter did a really good job of converting slides to digital images. It was far better than the unit I had used some years ago. There were two problems: 1) the slide holder is slightly too small. The slides will not drop down automatically. After experimenting, I put in one slide at a time. As it takes a couple of seconds for the image to be transfered to the SD card, little time is lost loading one slide at a time. Certainly far better than the unit that requires loading three slides into a holder; 2) the screen that shows the image is not tilted up enough. Sitting in a standard chair and looking at the picture on a card table from a normal distance, say roughly 12 inches, the picture is distorted. When backing off, the picture is OK, it is just too far away. This is solved by putting an object under the front of the converter. Overall, I'm pleased with the Converter.

from Norfolk Ne.
Take your time in setting up the slides for exposure. Check from time to time as you may have a slide to dark or to light.
