- — 28 January, 2011 11:44
Maybe you have a dusty shoebox of old slides, or perhaps you're an aficionado of film photography and have a pile of negatives. If you want to digitise these memories you can either pick up a multifunction device with a slide scanning attachment or, if you want a way to do it simply and quickly, pick up the US$99 iConvert.
The iConvert negative/slide scanner captures images at 1800dpi — and, according to the manufacturer, it takes less than a second to perform a scan. The iConvert features a 2.4in LCD screen to view pictures as you capture them, and the files are saved to an SD or MMC memory card.
You can also connect the iConvert to a PictBridge-compatible printer or PC via USB.
The iConvert lets you adjust exposure as well as rotate and flip images.
