This scanner is just what we neded and it works great. In the 70's we took mostly slides of our kids. We wanted to share these with the family so several years ago we bought a VuPoint Digital Scanner. It was so slow that we could only copy about 30 slides an hour. We lost interest and stopped using it. We got a new computer with Windows 7 and tried it again. It only worked with XP. Our new ION PICS2SD scanner is fast using both slides and photos. We are now putting together DVD's of our slides and pictures for our daughters.
Very happy with this unit. It pays to shop around for the best price. Ours was new and in the factory box. about half the price of retail stores.
This scanner has a real problem with glossy photos. It puts a dark shadow in the center of the pictures. My photos are so old that it is still an improvement. You will not make prints from them. Keep the special prints you may want copies of for another process or find the negetives. Slides and negitive are great. I have done over 4000 prints so far.
I looked at a lot of scanners and as a video engineer, I was pretty picky. First I realize you are not going to find an affordable professional unit like the ones used by the commercial photo houses, but this device comes pretty close.
I am impressed with the corrections you have for slides and photos, and how quickly it scans the image. The SD Card is included and very handy and you can easily add a larger size card.
The ION scanner will help me reduce boxes of photos and slides that are fading and some almost not visible.
I also bought an ION Scanners for my daughter and she was equally thrilled with the performance.
I also reccomend a slide viewer to sort out your slides before you load up the 35mm ION sliders. This will save you time in the process. You will find many that just are not worth scanning.
I leave the ION set up and scan photos and slides when I have free time. This is a very handy and a well done product for what I needed to do with all the old photos and slides accumilated through the years.
Over the years I have accumulated thousands of photos between my travels and family milestones being documented. This Ion PICS2SD was exactly what I needed to digitize all of the photos from the past. The instructions were a little difficult to understand, but the scanner itself is extremely easy to use. I was able to figure it out just by playing with it for a couple of minutes. I thought it worked rather quickly, I was able to get through over 100 slides in an hour. The scans were sharp, clear, and they looked like there were very high quality once I uploaded them on to my computer. I would suggest putting a thicker piece of paper behind pictures to scan because occasionally the brightness of the scanner takes away from the pictures. I also like the fact that I don't have to use my computer to upload the pictures, I could use an SD card if I wanted to, so it's nice to know I have options in case I need a Plan B. I am impressed with this item's quality for the price that I paid. There is no need to overspend on a high end scanner when this piece of equipment does a fantastic job.
I used this product to transfer slides from the past onto the provided SD card, then to my P.C. and finally to a C.D. I created an awesome picture library to keep, develop and/or send to whomever I desire. The Ion Pics 2 SD was easy to use along with upgrading the picture quality. I had fun reliving old times transferring slides/photos to digital and am now able to enjoy those time whenever I wish with more convenience.
