too good to be true & a waste of money"If it seems to good to be true, it probably is. This isn't a true film scanner but is essentially a digital camera/light combo- the backlight shines through and the sensor just photographs the image (not a true scan).
I was hoping it would give me ""okay"" quality of some old vacation snapshot negatives but it wasn't up to it, even when negatives were properly exposed. It creates a grainy final image, and isn't worth wasting the time on if you want to create a digital archive from your negatives.
Spend the extra money and get a real scanner. I can't believe Henry's is even selling this item it's the kind of low end consumer item you'd find at Walmart, not at a respected photo store. Disappointing. Returned for a refund and bought a flatbed scanner which was well worth the extra money."
