Super-simple slide and negative scanning with iConvert

The iConvert is a swift and easy way to scan slides and photographic negatives

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.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
