I'd read horror story reviews of this type of viewer with faults like stuck slides or slides won't go in so I thought pay a bit more to hopefully get a top quality one and get it from an official Kodak source. So glad I did! Accepts every type of 35mm slide, paper and plastic mounts. Eject mech. works faultlessly and nice big bright image. Fab viewer for sorting good from dull slides prior to the main slide show. Ticks all my boxes. Thanks Kodak!
I bought the Kodak Slide N Scan to scan boxes of old 50mm slides, as I'm currently emptying my (deceased) parents house. Unfortunately, only "thinner", cardboard mounted slides fit in the tray. Plastic mounted slides simply don't fit in the slide tray. There is NO SUPPORT offered anywhere on the Kodak websites for the Kodak Slide N Scan. I am so disappointed that I purchased this next-to-useless product.
5 weeks and still haven't received. Don't bother.
Still haven't received so no idea
Still haven't got what I ordered. Not sure if I've been ripped off.
Literally they could have tried any less to help solve the issue or even keep me as a customer. Pretty disappointed!! Cancelled the order. Will probably buy elsewhere.
Image smaller than I was expecting - can be difficult to identify people (or places). Slides get stuck if you don’t realise that the exit bin is full (which doesn’t take many slides). Quite a disappointing product
Traveling the world so brought it to scrape book. Only down side to ot is the prise of the papper I later found that the ink is stored in the paper that's how it's inkless. very clever!
I just opened the Kodak Slide n Scan. I am trying to scan 135 mm slides. My issue is that the whole slide isn't showing on the preview screen. I am only seeing a narrow view of the slide. People are cut off on the sides. Could someone tell me what I am doing wrong?
My son has been saving up for this camera for months and was so excited to receive it. The packaging was sleek and everything was accounted for. The L.C.D screen is exactly what he was looking for. It creates amazing photos and videos. Highly Recommend!
Will it show the obsolete 828 (Bantam) aperture size which is slightly larger than the 35mm aperture.
It would be great if the app would allow to select the camera on smartphones with mutltiple cameras with different focal length. This would alliw to capture the 35mm film with better resolution.
I just unboxed it today and I can tell you that it’s well designed and well put together. The ball head is smooth for panning and overall seems very solid, as does the rest of the tripod. Don’t be tempted to buy the cheaper plastic models. This is money well spent. Should last a long time. The shutter remote works great, too. NOTE: When you first unbox it, the spikes are sticking out; just screw the rubber feet down until they cover over the spikes. Nothing extra to carry, You always have both feet pre-installed at your disposal. A smart design choice by the engineers.
This is the best tripod I could find in this price range and I would definitely buy it again. Especially good for beginners and someone who’s not sure how serious or long they’ll be interested in photography. An experienced photographer would not be disappointed with this tripod. You could easily spend $100 more on a tripod that’s not much better made than this one. KODAK lived up to their long history of good products!
Je viens d'acheter cette visionneuse pour trier mes anciennes diapos j'en plusieurs centaines
Fonctionne très bien Il faut penser à se munir d'une pince car parfois ça coince !
On va pouvoir faire des projections sur écran en famille
This scanner is perfect and helped me restore thousands of my grandparents' memories from 40-50-year-old slides! It's very easy to use. I edited the photos on my MacBook so I didn't really use the device's editor
When been able get remote kds tore up one
I happy with mini scanner - been digitizing boxes of 135 negatives. Easy to use and upload the pictures I want to my laptop. Question: is there a way to clear the gallery? I'm not using an sd card. Thank you.
I love my Printomatic! Is easy to use, to manage and I have fun using it!
I just bought this unit about a week ago. My first impressions is the build quality is pretty good and it's straight forward in operation. The large screen is a big improvement over the other scanners of it's type, although I've never seen any of the other ones in person. I've had some trouble with film frames sticking or jumping occasionally while transferring. I've managed to resolve this by not necessarily following the designated film path on the take up reel side. It's seem to vary with the film I'm scanning. You definitely need to keep an eye on the unit when in operation as it will hiccup every now and then, especially if there are splices in the film. The scan quality is not what you would get with a professional scan, not that you should expect that. I find transfers a bit on the grainy side and the color seems over saturated. I adjusted the sharpness and tint down a notch which seems to help. Overall, I think it does a pretty decent job of scanning film for the price and good way to view your old 8mm/Super 8mm movies.
I have absolutely no experience with film. My late father-in-law has a number of various 8mm and Super 8 film I wish to digitize, with the intent to show my mother-in-law. The current firmware is 1.0, and so far my biggest issues are with the film itself: loading it, getting it processed and wound through the unit. And then monitoring it. I am fairly well versed in many operating systems, devices, gadgets, etc. Not an expert, but can hold my own, and have dove into esoteric systems before (HP48SX, various PLCs, Linux, yadda yadda). The GUI is decent - gets the job done. Transfers are fine. Could use a bit more software automatic tweaking to framing the film. Maybe some more GUI handholding guidance. The basic firmware does the job. I just got the unit, wanting the larger screen and the Kodak backing. So I am not yet sure what to suggest as improvements. Dealing with old film I am finding out the software itself isn't a limiting factor compared to the film.
I will also say I looked at the competitors for a while, and jumped on this unit when it came out. The larger screen and overall ergonomics and button interface was much more of what I needed and wanted. Buttons on top, screen near the top, well out of the way of the film. Compared to the other offerings, this impressed me more.
The few films I've done so far met what I expected in resolution, clarity and focus. I reiterate, the film will be the biggest variable here.
I'll review again once I've accumulated more time with it, learning as I go. There were no reviews I could find, so thought I'd do one. The unit, for me, meets my current expectations and needs. Its doing the job. For someone with far less computer or device experience, I think the GUI would be fairly self explanatory. I cannot underscore enough how much the real job is simply managing the old film most people may try to put through it. Those quirks and learned skills will matter more than the unit itself.
Overall, glad I purchased. Compared to Wolverines and a few others, I do recommend.
Werkelijk goed apparaat! Gebruiksvriendelijk en het leert snel te gebruiken. Alleen, ... diaraampjes tot 2mm dikte gaan er nog soepel door, maar de veel gebruikte 3mm dikke raampjes niet echt lekker. Lukt wel, maar die moeten dan één voor één ingelegd worden, maar doorschuiven gaat niet.
Trying to scan slides that are in plastic mounts and they don't fit in the slide adaptor, as the lid won't close. Is there another way, or a slide adaptor that can accomodate the plastic mounted slides?
Really it's a great product. We enjoyed like a cinema in our home. Just connect a Home Theater to it and its amazing.
I've read the guides about the camera but I haven't seen anything about the folders that appear in the ad card you insert in the camera. There's two folders named "PRINTED" and "PRINT_ME" so I'm wondering now if you could somehow print a photo by moving a picture into one of the folders or something and I have tried but it doesn't work so is there a way to reprint a photo off the SD card that wasn't the most recent photo taken?
I recently bought this and im so glad i did! i am very happy with this projector it works well & the speaker is quite loud too and for the price you’re paying i think its very worth it! its compact and very stylish too.
