Still got boxes of slides and negatives gathering dust in a cupboard? Why not digitise your collection using the Reflecta x 9 Film Scanner. Battery or mains operated (batteries included), it can be used anywhere and at one second per scan makes for a speedy and convenient way to convert your images, automatically changing negatives to positives.
Conversion from film to digital is very simple. Just load your slides or negatives into the appropriate carrier and slide into the slot on the scanner. Two carriers are supplied – one will hold a strip of six negatives and the other will accommodate three mounted 35mm slides. No computer is needed, as the scanned images are saved to an SD/SDHC card (not included) which slots into the back.
The film is illuminated by a built-in white LED light and images can be viewed immediately on the 2.4 inch LCD display screen on the scanner, or you can connect the scanner to your TV or computer for a larger view. Exposure and cropping is automatic, but compensation of up to +/- 2EV is available if needed. If the images need a bit of tweaking, you can then edit them on your computer using the image editing software supplied.
A 35mm slide will produce an image size of 2592 x 1728 pixels. Although this is a lower resolution than would be obtained using a camera and slide copier or flatbed scanner, it is fast and inexpensive and the images produced are more than big enough to display on any computer screen, HDTV or output as a 10x8 inch print.
Included with the scanner: USB and TV-out cables, holder for three mounted slides up to 3.2mm thickness, holder for film strips (up to six images), lithium-ion battery, AC adapter, cleaning brush, image editing software (compatible with Windows and Mac) plus full user instructions.
