Lowest Price: £68.76SmartPhoto F50 is a light weight and compact 5.0 Mega pixel CMOS film and slide scanner powered by the USB cable (when connected to a PC), with 24 bits per channel colour. It fits into the category of a commercial version of a close up camera, taking pictures of your film in front of a strong backlight. On this scanner the backlight is vertical. One of the main issues with capturing from film is that the enlargement factor reveals foreign matter requiring elimination or camouflaging. As the scanner displays directly to the computer screen, this can be readily identified.
