VuPoint Solutions FC-C520-VP-RB reviews

FC-C520-VP Digital Converter With Display is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 40.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from jury still out I am a professional photographer looking for a quick cheap way to scan old family slides and negs since my Nikon LS-2000 died. For the price it is fast, but I found the multi-function buttons annoying. The color is not so great, but...well, some of these negs are 35 years old anyway. The black and white negs scan well. I experimented with some ancient 110 negs and-not surprisingly, the results were marginal. To its credit it is fast and makes a decent sized scan. The negative carrier is kind of hard to pry open, but will probably loosen up with use. If quick and dirty is acceptable, then this machine is probably fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for savy user to save old memories Easy to use. Automatic exposure and color. Fast capture pictures. Good resolution 1800 / 3600. Picture has 2M resolution and can print 8 x 10 with good quality. But Take time to put film inside the holder. The film holder can hold 6 frames. In most case, film developers cut them in 4 frames per sheet. The holder lock is hard to open due to its locking mechanism design. It take 70 % time to load and unload the film in the holder. However I was able to capture 160 frames in 15 minutes which is not too bad. The automatic exposure and color set is slightly toward blueish color which can be adjusted which photoshop or other software

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Product Exceeds My Expectations I am converting both slides and negatives. The product does a great job and the supporting software is very good. It is tedious when doing large numbers of slide and/or negatives but for the price I will accept the manual operation. The memory is not large enough but adding an SD chip is easy and inexpensive. Unfortunately the converter cannot be hooked directly to the computer for the purpose of converting photos. If I could improve this product I would make it such that the operator could see converted files directly to the computer while performing the conversion. This is probably the only complaint that I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Something that finally works and great I fooled with scanners and attachments way back and nothing worked for beans. This unit works. It is on the one of the best things I ever bought. Got the job done quick enough but with quality. I'm happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product does everything it is supposed t This product allowed me to retrieve years of stored slides that were lost in an attic for 30 years. What a great way to digitize your old negatives and slides!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I would recommend this to anyone I am using this to scan some slides and negatives from as far back as 40 years ago. The product is easy to use and does a quick job of scanning both slides and negatives. If you don't need the ultimate quality of scanned image this is for you and you can't beat the price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for I used this to scan old slides.- You need to watch for dust or a hair getting inside the scanner and when this does happen, it is not that easy to clean. You need an air bubble blower and have to squeeze it in at an angle to remove the particle- The color of the slides was definitely better when viewed through a typical view finder. There is no way of changing the default setting for scanning, so plan on spending quite a bit of time with your editing software. This was especially the case with close up slides we had of beautiful flowers. Bright red roses with deep green leaves would scan as unvibrant orange. I've not tried to fix them yet using software.- Speaking of software, I did not use what came in the box as I have photoshop.- On darker slides, a blue line showed accross the bottom of the scan.- Overall it was easy to use, scanned quickly, and was good for preserving some old memories. If the slide is you as a child on a beach, no one will care if your red shirt is now slightly orange. But, if you are looking to reproduce slides for sale or some other professional use, then you should be investing in a higher quality device.- the instructions were poor. The biggest flaw is lack of how to load a slide, so find one you know is right (such as someone driving) to scan first and thus be sure you are not inversing every image : )- Worth the price for quick preservation. I would recommend it for this purpose.Tracy, Author/Photographer@

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slip Sliding Away! That I am using this converter to turn old-fashioned slides into digital images is testimony to my being of a certain gray vintage. I found therefore the print on the manual extremely small, and the directions themselves more suited to the 'point and click' generation than to my own. That being said, once I figured out how to use the scanner I have been very happy with it. The images transfer onto the memory/memory card very quickly and easily. The built in screen is small, but certainly larger than the original slides themselves. I have not used the display on TV feature. I have transferred the images from the scanner to my PC. That process has also been very easy and painless. The Photoimpressions software included with the scanner is also uncomplicated. It has enabled me to produce images on documents and on Powerpoint demonstrations which are of a good quality and true to the images captured on film by my camera. For me, as an amateur photographer, the scanner delivers on the results its advertisements have promised.
