ION Deluxe Film 2 SD Negative Holder

• Spare negatives holder for the ION Deluxe Film 2 SD Scanner

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I ordered this scanner mainly to copy slides and was very pleased with the results. The mark 2 version was supplied complete with a 2GB sd card. Some reviews mentioned a dust problem (which shows up as black specs when copying slides or white specs when copying films). Dust is inevitable but to minimise the problem I used a hand blower once the slides were loaded in their holder and to remove any dust from the internal screen I used an antistatic wipe wrapped around the supplied cleaner. Some very old slides had faded or suffered from bad colour casts so editing software was needed to improve these. The majority of slides however were bright and vibrant and the contrast and colour was better than some of the commercial prints that had been done some years ago. After a few weeks I had copied over 4000 slides and this device was worth every penny just to see photos of our children taken almost 40 years ago.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Item works well but a major problem is dust particles attracted by static. These stick to the internal glass screen and produce white marks all over the scanned image. There is a brush provided with the unit but this does not remove the dust specs and just redistributes them. I have tried all sorts of things but the glass screen is simply a dust magnet. This will ruin any image scanned and I think a dust free scan is possible.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am not throwing away the original slides just yet. The resolution of the scanned images is 2400 x 1600, but the picture is not pin-sharp, particularly towards the edge. I don’t think the optics match the digital resolution. Ion claim it has a 5 megapixel scanner, but my sums says 2400x1600=3.84 Megapixel. I have never had any more pixels than this so I’m not sure how it justifies the higher number. The LED backlight works well and gives good colour rendition in my opinion. The contrast is sometimes a little higher than the original, but this often seems to happen when you copy slides. It seems to be a bit of a dust-magnet, and although a special brush was supplied to clean it, I found a good blast of air was more effective. It was supplied with a power adaptor and a USB cable which is too short (1.2m), necessitating the use of an extension lead to reach a table at a convenient working height. It scans in just a couple of seconds, and the slide holders work well. The negative holder is also good, but it has pegs to engage with the sprocket holes, and this means the frame does not always line up with the image perfectly... it probably depends on what camera was used to take the picture, and could be as much as half a sprocket hole out (2-3 mm). I may buy a spare holder and try "modifying" it with a pair of wire cutters to remove the pegs! The scanned area is less than the image area of a standard 35mm slide. You lose about 13% of the width and 8% of the height – so I frequently find the tops of heads have been cut off or sometimes even a whole person when there is a large group photo, and certainly messes up the composition of a photo. The negative holder only traverses one way, which makes it harder to slide the holder to and fro to get the bit of picture you want in frame. It copes well with black and white negatives, and it is nice to be able to see a positive image on the little LCD display, even if it is tiny. The file size is just less than 1Mbyte, so you get about 1000 images on the supplied 1Gb SD card. (I haven't tried any others, but I understand it will take up to 4Gb) The built-in software adjusts the colour balance of colour negatives automatically. I was really impressed with the colours from some ancient Agfa negatives, that were a peculiar shade of green instead of the more usual orange colour. I have had one or two little "funnies" with the software, occasionally it won't display a very thin B/W negative on the screen, although it scans alright. once or twice it seems to have not picked up the edge of a frame correctly, and again once or twice it has adjusted the brightness incorrectly, but each time, pressing the button again to re-scan seems to sort it out. It is certainly quick to use. And is getting my slides and negatives into a useable form on the computer. As long as you understand its shortcomings it is a useful photographic tool. I bought mine on special offer, and think it was reasonable value for money considering how much digital camera you could buy for the price. It is essentially a cheap digital camera and an LED backlight.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I was left disappointed with this item. I also was unable adjust any quality settings etc in order to be able to improve picture performance. Could not recommend.
