    Very convenient product if you want you're old negatives and slides digitalized, even scanned a couple of negatives the lab thought were too dark to copy
    The Magig Touch feature comes in handy.
    The photos had great quality after scanned, but some of the negatives had to be retouched with ps for colour adjusment.
    The fil holder stop in the film slot was slightly (milimetrically) displaced, I had to adjust it myself with the possibility of breaking it.

      I purchased the scanner to scan pictures of my son for his wedding video. The scanner was perfect for that application. As others have said, the instructions are not that great, but it didn't take long to figure it out. Haven't tried to scan slides or negative, but I intend to.

        Comments about Pacific Image ImageBox 9MP Standalone Scanner:

        After my fathers death a couple of years ago i became the beneficiary of all his travel photos/slides/negatives which spans decades and was contained in storage boxes. I thought about sending out all of the photo items to have them digitally scanned but found it to be too expensive and i would lose possession of them for several weeks. My decision was made to do the scanning work myself, a daunting task made easier by the ImageBox 9MP Standalone Scanner. This scanner does not require a computer so it can be used anywhere...in my case next to my recliner and tv. Also, it has a slide holder that will accommodate up to 4 slides at a time which speeds the process up considerably. This ImageBox scans photos, slides, and negatives onto a sd card so there is no need for separate devices. Because it is portable, stand alone and multi-functional i have almost completed my task of digitizing the memories left behind by my dad.
        This product met all of my needs, and exceeded my expectations all within a great price point.

        Nice scanner

        By Dwayne L

        from Baytown, TX

        Comments about Pacific Image ImageBox 9MP Standalone Scanner:

        Used this scanner to covert some old family photos from slides to digital JPG files. Worked well, and fairly quick. Scanned 120 slides in about 30 minutes after figuring out how to use the scanner. The instructions are not very clear. Touched up photos on Lightroom after scanning. If original slides are good it makes a decent scanned photo.

        The ImageBox 9MP Standalone Scanner By Pacific Image is quick and easy to use. I have only used it to scan 3 x 5 or smaller photos. I have not used the slide or negative attachments. I am converting old family photos so the stand alone feature makes it easy to organize the photos using different memory cards.

        If your color slides are in perfect condition, this scanner will make quick, sharp scans. BUT - if your slides are old and faded, with purple grass, green faces, blown out highlights, and blocked shadows, this unit does not have enough software capability to correct problems (a mid-range all purpose scanner does). A second pass thru Photoshop will help, but will not recover detail never picked up by this scanner.

            Good product. Easy to use even though instructions are minimal. The scanning process that erases scratches take 45 seconds per slide. Don't use it unless necessary. Normally takes 3 seconds. I would purchase it again.

              Comments about Pacific Image ImageBox 9MP Standalone Scanner:

              My first review is below. I scanned about 25 slides yesterday very quickly and was very pleased with the results. I scanned to a card and then attached the unit to my Mac. The computer saw the card in Finder, and I imported to iPhoto. I did some testing of the defect removal option and did not see any noticeable improvement for extra 40 seconds of scan time.

              As I mentioned, the manual is very limited in helpfulness. Using a Windows computer might be much more difficult since the OS is poor. I think I will scan all of my slides directly to the SD card. Load from the card into the computer. I will spend more time labeling the image in the computer than anything else!!

                Comments about Pacific Image ImageBox 9MP Standalone Scanner:

                I have only scanned a handfull of slides and did it to a memory card so I cannot comment on the use with a computer. The documentation with it is very limited so it took a few minutes to learn how to scan and to correctly position the slide. I did not try a photo but will. The slides have some dust on them so I will try the option to correct.

                The reproduction on slides appeared to be quite good. The slides were taken 40 years ago and are best for focus or lighting.

                I have ~300 or so slides from the 70's and 80's to scan. (Down from 1500; used a projector to sort) This will be very cost effective when compared to having a photo shop do it (if you can find one).

                Right now, I would purchasse again. As I scan more, I may update this.

                    Stay away from these camera type scanners.

                    Better to go with the flat bed Photo scanners for any decent picture quality.

                    So far I have only used it to scan slides. It seems to capture a lot of detail. I need to do some color correction in Photoshop. Overall, I would buy it again.

                      Comments about Pacific Image ImageBox 9MP Standalone Scanner:

                      I had 7 boxes of the old circular slide trays to transfer (about 600 slides). My husband started in on them and in 5 hours with some breaks in between he had transferred all of them onto a memory card! We had anticipated this taking long hours but he was done that day. Part of the fun was seeing the slides again on the little screen as he was working with them. We were very pleased. They were old slides of my kids that we hadn't seen in years. We transferred the pics from the memory card to cd's and sent them off in the mail. Everyone is very happy.
                      He also used it to turn some old 35mm negatives into prints. He scanned them to the memory card and as it scans them in they were automatically turned into a positive. He was able to print them out from the computer.
                      Then he lifted the top and used it to scan in some old 4x6 prints and transfer them from the card to the computer.
                      We are very pleased with the ease of use. My husband is a photographer and we are now so happy with this item that we are now including "turn your old slides into prints" in our repertoire of services!

                            Very unhappy: crude box like device with a very poor ability to transfer slides; my beautiful old Kodachromes were too-bright, washed out, and worthless. While I usually hate printed user guides, I really went over this one, which gives only the most threadbare info on the device. Well--I guess because this is a threadbare device. Maybe does better with prints...

                              Easy to set up and operated. Use it to scam my pre-digital slide collection some of which go back 40 years. Results more than satisfactory

                              I love how easy it is to copy pictures, slides and negatives. Anyone can figure out how to use it. The instructions are basic. I have not tried to clean the scanner glass
