This is the only portable digital slide converter that quickly preserves a vacation’s-worth of photographic memories without being tethered to a computer or electrical outlet. Unlike devices that can only handle a single slide at a time, this converter’s removable tray holds up to 25 slides for smooth, fingertip feeding (includes standard trays for film negatives). With the touch of a button, the converter’s 14 MP CMOS sensor—the highest available on models of this type—captures a 3200 dpi JPEG image in 3-5 seconds. Images can be immediately previewed on the built-in 21/2" TFT color display and are stored on an SDHC memory card up to 32 GB (not included; 16 GB card sold below). The converter provides automatic exposure control and color balance, resulting in clear digital images without loss of quality. Images can be transferred to a computer via USB cable or viewed on a TV (cables included). Its rechargeable battery provides up to three hours of operation from a 31/2-hour charge via AC or USB (adapters included). Includes photo-editing software. 5 3/4" H x 4 1/4" W x 4 1/4" D. (1 lb.)

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

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.

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.

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!

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.
very unreliable. would not buy nor sell
from Coral Gables, FL
It is a cheaply constructed product that constantly jammed. It did not perform as advertised.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

give this item a good look
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.
from CHICAGO, IL
QUICK SET-UP GUIDE'S PRINT REQUIRED A MAGNIFING GLASS TO READ & WERE PRACTICALLY USELESS. TRIAL & ERROR YIEDED BEST RESULT. BUT, THE TRAYS AREN'T EASILY IDENTIFIABLE FOR EACH FORMAT (TRIAL & ERROR). THE USER GUIDE (CD ROM) REQUIRED 5 ATTEMPTS TO GET IT TO LOAD. YOU CLAIM PG. 28 TELLS HOW TO HOOK THE DEVICE TO A TV VIDEO TO SEE SCANNED ITEMS - DOES'NT WORK! THIS DEVICE IS NOT AS ADVERTISED. IT NOW HAS A PERMANENT PLACE ON MY CLOSET SHELF.
