Hey All,

I've been looking at getting one of these to scan in all the old negative photo slides they have into a digital format:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Veho-VFS-001-Negative-Slide-Scanner/dp/B000XFTQ5M/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1196691186&sr=8-1

Does anyone know of a better price or maybe even a better make/model?

-thanks,

Lewman

Don't waste your money on that junk, how much you got to spend ?

I've got an Epson 3590 flatbed scanner which does negatives as well as the norm.. Not sure about slides tho'. Think it cost about £50 squid and it's been brilliant.

The Veoh is pretty great though still takes a while to do how much you after paying as will be getting rid of mine when finished scanning the negatives?

I'm looking at getting it for my dads xmas present. He has 100s of these old negatives that he wants to put into digital format.

If i was looking at a 2nd hand one it would need to be in excellent condition. Would be prepared to pay around £45 for it.

As you might guess, image quality isn't all that great, with plenty of noise and a distinct absence of detail. If you want to preserve your shots for posterity or blow them up on magazine covers, this isn't the scanner for you.


Judge for yourself. Anything advertised as a "5 Mega CMOS (1.174
million pixels) image sensor" doesn't sound particularly promising or
even legal.

What exactly is a "5 mega CMOS image sensor"? Is it a CMOS sensor with
5 megas, whatever they are? Perhaps its an image sensor with 5 mega
CMOS's? Perhaps its a new image sensor technology entirely, based on
mega complementary metal oxide semiconductors and this unit has 5 of
them? ;-)

It sure as hell isn't a CMOS image sensor with 5 mega pixels, since even
the highly misleading advertisement explains that it only has 1.174Mp!

And as for "interpolating to 3600dpi", lets see: 3600ppi on a 35m frame
is around 17Mp. Just stick any image into any viewer application and
view it 400% scaling and the resulting poor image quality you see is the
BEST that such a route to 3600ppi can achieve.

Even at 60GBP, the lowest I have seen them, you are still being ripped
off. I've seen more useful items in packs of breakfast cereal!


It's your money !
