      I have a ton of slides I need to convert to digital. I used to love using slide film and want to preserve all those images. I just up loaded 140 images to my computer and I'm thrilled to finally get to edit and share right along with my other shots. I still have much more to work on and have not yet tried converting my other pictures or negatives . The pic2sd is easy to use and the process is quick(and quiet). I have no negative things to add , it's working out great for me!

      I use the converter to tranfer slides,of which I have thousands, to my computer. Also copy some old family photos. I have not used it but 3 time, but seem to work as expected.
      The only time I used it for photos it reversed them. I hope this can be corected by folling directions.

          It works great. It is very easy to use. I took it out of the box, scanned through the instructions and immediately started scanning my neighbor's slides.

            Comments about ION Audio PICS 2 SD Image Converter:

            I was looking for a scanner to take to my moms( no computer access)father has thousands (really)of slides from the 50s on up. needed to save. Could not believe how wonderfully easy and good quality this scanner has. Pics that were great scanned great some pic had degraded from the 50s fixed up a bit with the adjustments better. but you can only do so much. if the pic is not good this is not going to work with bad shots(my dad was excellent)very simple and quick.I also bought the scan cards worked great. I tried the photo scan and did not like cause you see the outline of the holder holding pic. I think over all this is a great product and feel anyone who needs to save slides worth using.

                      I had a large number of both personal pictures and slides from many years ago, and this image converter made scanning them all very quick and easy. Worked very well with 4x6 and 5x7 prints, but cannot handle smaller size or large ones. Those I will scan on my flatbed, but this made the bulk of the job easy

                            Scanning 50 year old slides and prints to put in digital frame for grandmother - it is working great - she has not seen these slides in years - this is making a very special gift and is so easy to use. I recommend it.

                              I use this primarily for converting slides to digital images -- who has a slide projector anymore??! It's very quick and relatively simple. It's nice to be able to color correct slides from the same batch (if they happen to still be in that order) and get very decent results.
                              Its light weight makes it easy to transport or just pack away in storage when it's not being used. It's a fast transition and the resolution is very good.
                              The plastic holders are a little bit of concern since one side of the hinges likes to come undone during the loading and will sometimes almost jam in the unit because it hasn't closed all the way. As long as I pay attention it's not that big of a problem.

                                I have been surprised and delighted with my new portable scanner. Only problem, is the slide sleeve is for the traditional slides and I have 100s of the 1/4 inch border slides too. Sure made my mother in law happy.

                                      I had an older film scanner and it was not user friendly and was also starting to put lines through the pics. The PICS 2 is great! Its easy to use and does a good job of scanning pics, negs and slides. As I am the family geneologist, I seem to have collect many pics that I am going to put on my computer so I can share with the family.

                                      Thanks

                                      We are using this to digitize several hundred slides that are forty years old. Loading the slides is the slowest part of the process. The scanning is a snap.
