Product Highlights
  • 600 dpi
  • 8.27" Scan Width
  • 98" Maximum Scan Length
  • Scan Almost Any Flat Surface
  • Battery Operated
  • Stores Images on microSD Card

The handheld Magic Wand Portable Scanner (Purple) from VuPoint scans documents, photos, newspapers, and virtually any smooth surface onto a microSD card. With a scan area of 8.27 x 25" (or up 98" inches at lower resolutions), the scanner can store any letter or legal size document or image. Take the portable scanner with you to the library and scan what you need for later, no need to waste paper or money on photocopies. When you get home, simply connect the scanner to your computer with the supplied USB cable to transfer your scans. If you scanned a text document, once your file is on the computer, you can use the included OCR (optical character recognition) software to convert any printed material into editable text (Windows only; not compatible with Mac OS).

The scanner runs on 2 AA batteries so you can easily replace them when they run out; no need to carry a charger around with you. Using standard AA batteries, the scanner can perform at least 180 color scans or 200 monochrome scans. The LCD displays the device's status and other important info. The scanner weighs only 6.9 oz (including the batteries) and is only 10 x 1.2 x 1 inches, making it a great way to store documents and photos on the go.

Please note that the Magic Wand requires a microSD card to operate

            Comments about VuPoint Solutions Magic Wand Portable Scanner (Purple):

            How have I lived this long without this? I had heard about a magic wand from fellow genealogists and was a bit skeptical. When it came I was stunned at how simple it was to operate. I was using it within 15 minutes and loving everything about it. I think every serious genealogist should have one.

            I was happy with this because it was much easier to use than a bulky printer/scanner combo!! The one-step process works well.
