The USB Negative Scanner Allows You To Digitise Your Old Negative PhotosWritten by John Thompson on December 4, 2011 · Filed under Gadget Gift Ideas, Gadgets
If you’re like me, you will have boxes and boxes of old negative photos that are never seen because they aren’t on your computer, and often get forgotten.
If you want to take all those negatives and make digital copies of them, it’s as easy as putting them through this USB negative scanner, which will transfer them to your computer for you! Simple.
When you put your negatives through the scanner, you can change various settings for importing them, such as the colour depth and dpi using the supplied software.
You won’t need to worry about using batteries or the mains to power the scanner either as it can be fully powered via USB, no alternate power source necessary.
The kit comes with film and slide holders, the software CD, a brush to clean any dust off your negatives before you scan them and the scanner itself.
If you’re interested, you can buy the smaller VFS-002m for £49.99. Alternatively, the deluxe VFS-004 is available for £79.99, both from Firebox.
