This scanner has been great for having old family slides on my computer and being able to view them again. I have also been scanning the negatives from my old pictures. It does a great job with both and I have compared the scanned negatives to the photos I scanned on a flatbed scanner and they generally come out much better. My only issue is with some darker slides, when I try to increase the brightness some of the brighter parts of the picture end up with a distorted colour. This is minor compared to the overall results.Len R 4
I was looking for a converter that would give good quality conversions from slides. I have over 10,000 slides that i want to digitize and i am happy to say that this unit does the job easily. The quality is not scanner grade but i needed machine that would convert the slides to view on computer or television without losing to much quality. This Magnasonic FS71 does that.James R 4
The amount of time to convert a slide is a few seconds versus minutes with a scanner and that would take more time than i have . Feeding the converter is quick and easy. I am very happy with this product.
I bought this scanner to be able to scan in a bunch of size 110 negatives that the Epson scanner I previously owned could not do. I'm happy to say I was able to scan those 110 negatives along with a number of 35mm negatives and am very pleased with the results. The scanned photos from those old negatives dating back to the 1980s really turned out well. I was thrilled to be able to view them on my computer screen, edit and organize them after scanning them onto a memory card with the Magnasonic.Dan D 5
The Magnasonic is easy to use with all the control buttons being easlily accessible right in front of you and the screen being angled up so that viewing the picture you just scanned is also very easy. I also like the 5" inch screen for viewing the pictures compared to several other brands of scanners that have only a 2 or 3 inch screen.
Scanning a picture is as easy as sliding the negative into the slide insert, centering the picture in the view screen, pressing the scan button and you're done, then onto the next photo in the film strip. One note I will add is that because some of my 110 film strips were about 2 inches or shorter, I had to come up with something to push the film strip through the scanner to get it positioned under the viewer to where I could scan the photo. I ended up cutting a half inch strip off an old plastic card which was thin enough to slide into the film strip holder and push the film strip into the correct place.
I used a 32GB class 4 Sandisk memory card with the Magnasonic to scan the pictures onto. I tried using a class 10 card which would not work. The Magnasonic simply wouldn't scan onto the card. I had experienced the same issue with another scanner I had used so for anyone considering purchasing a Magnasonic, make sure to buy a class 4 SD card. It works perfectly with this scanner.
Overall, I'm very pleased with the Magnasonic scanner. It's easy to use and the quality of the pictures it produces is excellent. I also like that you can scan to a memory card and then put the memory card in your computer for any photo editing you need to do versus having to connect the scanner directly to a computer to do the scanning. I highly recommend this scanner.
Easy to use, captures a good image, allows one to see and save on your computer and to view on tv. Covers all of the formats that I need.Pete A 5
So impressed with this product! I have been waiting for a month for all of the negatives from my old travel photos to be sent over to me from Australia. The negatives finally arrived and I'm having a blast making them all digital. The machine is super easy to use and I'm barely even having to edit the photos. It would be great if the photo files were dated the date the photos were taken, but not a big deal that they're not. Not using the photos for anything professional, simply my own enjoyment and keepsake, but Iove this little machine and would definitely recommend!Nicole T 5
