      I am archiving my family's slides and photos. I did over 700 slides, and the results are good; if the original slide is good, the detail is great. The process is simple, and controls are basic and work. One review commented that part of the slide was "cut off". This is really not correct. If you took the photo in "portrait", then you have to turn the slide sideways ("Landscape") when you scan it. It does not scan in "portrait". If the slide is very degraded in color, you might lose a bit more in the scan. I have not done prints yet. That is coming. If there are problems, I will make a new review.

      This scanner works okay for 35mm, but the 120 film modes scans at a very poor low resolution. So, if you're looking to scan 35mm film or slides, it may do what you want. However, if you're looking for a 120 film solution, don't get it. Anyway, I returned it.

        I purchased this scanner to convert prints and 35mm film. The scanner is super fast and produces excellent quality images.
        It also works as a stand alone device by saving scanned images directly to an SD card.

        **Can be used to convert dental bitewing xrays with the 120 film template.

              Comments about Pacific Image ImageBox MF 4-In-1 Slide, Film & Photo Converter:

              Bought this machine with great expectations. Did a trial run with a couple 35mm slides which turned out OK, then went to photos which didn't work.
              As is so often times the case with goods produced in the far east, the instructions were pitiful in at least 2 of the four languages included. Despite having
              A solid technical background I could not get this device to work as advertised. Where is their Quality Assurance?

              Tomorrow it goes back.

                I got this for my dad to use to scan a life time of 35mm slides. I tested it before sending to him. As a designer, I would not be able to use this professionally, as the scan quality isn't sharp and the color was off a bit, but I compare that to an expensive drum scan. But, for transfering old family shots to digital it does a good job and is very easy to use. I found the samples that I did still needed cleaning in Photoshop. They had some noise artifacting but at the highest setting the scan came out at 22.4" x 14.2" - 180dpi. I was able to do a quick clean and color correct and reduce the file to smaller size, 8x10 and 5x7 and it tightened up the image pretty well. It'll be great for family photos.
                I also didn't read the directions, cause who does that. It is exactly what I expected, a really good, not great, scanner for a good price.

                  The scanner arrived in good condition, but there was a musty smell to it, which went away in a few days. I was debating whether to send it back for a replacement because there was a pinpoint chip in the scanner glass. But after I scanned 120mm and 35mm negatives, and color and black/white photos, from the early 1900's to the turn of this century, I didn't see any negative effects from this chip on the scans, so I decided to keep it. It took a while to understand the sparse directions, but after trial and error, I finally figured them out. I wish there was at least a more detailed manual on line that I could have referred to. Also, I noticed that I have to be diligent to remove the dust that collects on the scanner glass. However, overall I am happy with this purchase.

                  I have quite a few volumes of photos spanning marriage until the digital age made film cameras disappear. My goal is to scan these in to post digitally and to archive. I have an Epson printer that takes about 10sec to scan in a single photo.

                  I needed something fast, reasonable resolution, and simple to use.

                  What's great:
                  Simple. My wife does not deal with "expert friendly" tools that well. To put this another way, the use model has to be simple to keep her interest. From this perspective, the tool is a winner. The normal settings seem to be working great for this purpose (not using the options to brighten/darken).

                  Not so great: The menu system is a little strange. I have problems navigating them as you seem to be able to get into a mode that is not recoverable. I have to cycle the power if I get here and start over.

                  Other than a slightly cryptic use model, I don't have complaints.

                  I have scanned in 35mm film. Loading the holder is time consuming so I won't do this often, if at all.

                  I used it to scan 35mm films. Film loading into the tray was a little difficult. takes some adjustment. Also learnt that the scanner would not work without a memory card. But the results are really good. Have not tried anything else yet. Have scanned 2 35mm rolls thats it.

                    I did research to find the correct machine for my needs....great for 4x6 and 3x5 pics, and wonderful for slides...I use adobe to really spruce up the pics online and they look like new...would be nice to have a cutout for the really old 2x4 inch black and white 1930 pics....but the machine works as it says and ordering was no problem...

                      This works exactly as described. Simple directions, fast imaging, and it does not need to be attached to a computer, saves to an SD card. This makes it perfect for a busy computer art class.

                        Easy to use, gives a good copy of 135 negatives and 4x6 pictures, not so good with 12o film (as expected)

                          it is easy enough to use, but no matter how you turn the slides it will not copy full slide. I will be returning it.

                            A quality product for a reasonable price. My experience is that it was easy to use right out of the box and is everything that it claims to to be. It was a gift to myself for Christmas but thought that I should give it a try before I wrapped it. Tried scanning an average photo and 4 slides from the 50's. Did a great job.

                                As a retired video producer (25 years experience) I was a bit sceptical as to its image quality claims. The 35mm slides that I chose for my test were quite typical for their age, the 50's, and with my iMac I was able to make some slight colour modifications that were required because of the film type as well as the slight colour shifting that takes place over the years. This is an excellent product and am looking forward to working with some 120 negs. Patience is the key, enjoy the process and the memories.
