Photo & Negative Scanners from Firebox - Great photo & negative scanners available from Firebox.
Rediscover long-lost photos, slides, and film negatives and make digitising a doddle with these one-touch, super-fast 5.1MP scanners. Simply slip in your 3x5, 4x6 or 5x7 inch photos, negatives or slides and clever electronic tomfoolery will scan and pixellate the trapped images – up to 3600 DPI - in seconds, leaving you to archive them, burn them to CD, upload them to Facebook or blow them up to cringe at your appalling lack of dress sense. Both compact scanners feature auto exposure and colour balance, and boast a high quality optical element, enabling you to see zits and bits in all their digitised glory – and those are just the holiday snaps from the Nineties. Think of all the ancient slides and negatives you haven’t held up to the light for years: Nan scoffing Spam sarnies, Dad dressed as Sonny Crockett, you playing Swingball in your Dangermouse undies…hang on, best bin that one. Choose from the below two versions which are both Mac & PC compatible:
Pics 2 PC - £119.99
The Pics 2 PC whooshes cherished snaps into your computer via USB. You can then edit, crop and resize them using the included software.
Pics 2 SD - £139.99
As well as doing everything the Pics 2 PC can, this cunning converter lets techie Tims digitise pics on the fly and drop them straight onto any SD card via its built-in slot. No computer required. You can even check out the results on its integrated 3.2-inch colour screen. And if you do decide to USB it into a computer, it doubles up as a handy SD card reader.
