Love it!!

I recently bought this and im so glad i did! i am very happy with this projector it works well & the speaker is quite loud too and for the price you’re paying i think its very worth it! its compact and very stylish too.

Backwards wording can only be seen in a big PC screen. It takes forever to find the slide to rescan

You claim: "Mistakes No More: If you accidentally load film upside down or inverted, flip and mirror tools fix the problem—even backwards wording—in a flash." How do you do it? I'm about to return this product! I'll wait for your answer.

I believe our Support Team already reached out to you about this.

For basic scanning it works decent but it has issues...

I have a small (ahem, probably 30 years worth) of photos and slides that I have wanted to scan to digital, and earlier this year I received the Slide N Scan as a gift.

Since then, I have worked (on-and-off) scanning in pictures (on my flatbed scanner), slides, and negatives where I don't have pictures in order to catalog them. I have scanned in and cataloged about 5 years worth so far. I have started on slides and gotten a few batches, but I'm concentrating on the pictures right now.

Pros:
It is fairly easy to use... you turn it on (with an SD memory card in it), select the film type (50mm slide / Color Negative / B&W Negative), select the format (135 / 110 / 126) and then insert your media and scan away.

There are RGB controls where you can adjust the color settings (Red / Green / Blue) but I need to learn how to adjust them properly.

Cons:
You have to set the Time and Date each time you turn on the scanner. I can understand if you need to have the EXIF data correct, but I would be happy just to have it stay the 'current date' so I can see what order I scanned them.

In the past couple of weeks, I have started getting a 'red' tint to everything... the background color and some of the negatives. If I move the negative strip back and forth it sometimes clears up the red, but it's becoming harder to get rid of it. I will get in touch with Support to see if this is something that can be fixed.

When using the cleaning tool, you can only reach the 'light bed' not the lens (as far as I am able to see through the slots) but the instructions say to clean the bed and the lens. Not sure how to clean the lens when I can't get to it.

Slide scanning... I have run into a similar situation as Schmink has with some of the slides being tight in the slide tray. I have measured some of the slides that I have trouble with, and they are about 1/2 mm taller than wide (50.5mm vs 50mm). I did some troubleshooting and discovered they are tight due to the hinges on the slide tray... the hinges protrude a little bit into the slide 'run' and that's what makes then tight. Not sure if anything can be done about that. If I run the slides though sideways they go through fine.

Now, due to the above problem, maybe? When scanning Kodachrome slides (at 126 Slide option selected) (50mm x 50.5 mm, center window average 27mm x 27mm), the scanner is cutting off the edges of the 'pictures'. If I put them in sideways, the sides are cut way off. If I put it in up-and-down, then the top and bottom of the slides are cut off. I have tried this with the 135 setting also, in case, and it gets a little more of the 'picture' but still not all. Something is not set right to allow scanning of the entire slide. This seems to be an issue with the scanner design not allowing more of the 'picture' to be scanned.

It would be nice if the different adapters would have been longer (about the same length as the 135 adapter). It is hard to find the correct spot to insert them if you don't have enough light on that side.

It also would be nice to be able to power the scanner without having to have it plugged in to the computer all of the time. I like to do some scanning when I'm doing something else (either on the computer or not) and would like to be able to do so without having to unplug the scanner from the computer to use, then plug it back into the computer to transfer the scans. A separate power port maybe?

This is not a professional scanner and isn't meant to be one, and I understand this. However, there are some 'small' issues that should be addressed (Time and Date and the slide feed tray) that would make it better.

Thank you.

Perfectly Portable if you DONT USE HULU

Perfect picture, satisfactory sound, and I agree with what other positives purchasers have said. HOWEVER, Hulu and Kodak need some sort of a compatibility agreement because Kodak is providing the Hulu app on a portable projector while Hulu has blocked usage on all hotspots so unless you are on your home network or a standard WiFi Hulu is useless on this projector. My husband travels weekly for work and this is the only reason we bought a projector.

i love it

it takes amazing pictures better than i few others ive bought through out my life but wish the photo paper wasnt so expensive to buy more i love taking pictures

Wishing to buy this camera

This Camera is perfect but i can't pay.

Great hardware and a very intuitive Software Interface

I purchased the Kodak Digital Film Scan Tool from a retailer.

After downloading the software from Kodak's website, I was up and scanning slides and negatives in minutes.

For those of you who remember Kodacolor prints, the negatives have an orange filter built into the emulsion. The Scanner recognized the negative, removed the orange filter, and reversed the negative into a positive. All in one easy step! (I thought I would have to Photoshop (tm) the scanned image, remove the filter, and then reverse the negative - - - this saved a lot of steps).

Scanning was very quick, and I'm only using a USB 2.0 interface.

Lots of resolution options:
Standard jpeg = 388 kB (OK for e-mails)
Interpolated jpeg = 947 kB (yawn)
Standard TIFF = 16 Meg (OK, you've got my attention - should be good for a 4x6 print at least)
Interpolated TIFF = more than 59 Meg (looks like I will need an external hard drive!)

At its present price point, I think this is a great scanner. It works as advertised, resolution settings seem right for "snapshots" or more serious work, the software is quite user-friendly, and the whole thing is in a nice, compact form factor.

I think the Kodak scanner is a real winner, and I will be looking forward to securing my old slides/negative into easily shareable digital formats.

Thanks, Kodak!!

Good but...

It was easy to set up and get going. I was not happy with the clarity of the print a little blurry and skin tones were dead looking. I tried the collage feature and it would not print. It kept saying preparing to print and it never did. These are my first attempts to print so I will try more prints tomorrow.

Performed Decently Enough

I purchased this init a couple of days ago and so far, it has performed well enough, even the 110 format was satisfactory. The insert was a bit tricky but it once figured out, it worked. The only thing that concerns me is after the configuration and brightness is set, after the exposure button is pressed, the settings are all wrong (too blue, too bright, etc.). Going to try a Wolverine scanner and see if it has the same issues.

Scanning slides from mid 1960's thru early 1980's

My parents had several loaded slide trays for viewing on a projector from mid 1950's thru early part of the 1980's. Many of these slides were of my younger years growing up on the family farm and I wanted to convert them to digital. I had projected the slides onto a projector screen and took a picture of the screen with a 4K camera, then enhanced in PhotoShop. This worked, but still not the greatest results so I began an internet search before selecting the Kodak Slide-n-Scan.

The difference is quality was unbelievable. I had 3 or more pics that I couldn't digitalize satisfactory without converting them to black and white using the projector. With Kodak's Slide-n-Scan having easy accessible light/dark and red/green/blue controls, I was able to make minor adjustments to almost every original slide before scanning it. I ended up a nice colorful, digital copy of every slide! I still ran the scanned image thru Photoshop as I think removing the haze or dehazing the pictures can make a big difference along with other minor tweaks. (I even dehaze most of my 4K or 3D pictures that I take now before using them in Shutterfly or making a stereo card out of them, etc.) I couldn't believe how great the color came out in some of these old slides. Or how I could lighten or darken them up before scanning. And love the big 5" diagonal viewing screen!! Very easy to use.

FYI: One disappointment, nothing to do with the workability of the scanner, but worth noting. I had two different sizes of slides. The Kodak Slide-n-Scan only accepts slides 2" in width. The frames on my 60's - 80's slides are 2" square and they worked wonderfully. Had just a few that took a little more pressure to slide them thru the guide. But my older slides (from the mid 50's to mid 60's) are a Drewry Photocolor slide that measure 2 3/4" square on the frame (actual viewing area of the slides are 2" square inside the frame). These bigger slides will not fit/work in this scanner. Now I'm searching for a scanner to handle these bigger slides.

Instan Dock Printer

This Printer may work well but Heaven Help you if you need any questions that don't seem to be addressed. Customer support is a 0 out of 1-10. You can't get anyone on the line and when you are put on hold by a computer, the line goes dead after about 1 minute. Now I will try to get the info I need to send it back.

Love it

I bought the printer so we could print out our pictures for my Mom’s memorial service. It works great and I’m so glad I got it.

Doesn't work well with 110 film negatives

The unit worked ok with 135 negatives, but the feeder-guide (which is about 4 1/2" long), and which you need to insert an adapter for 110 film, is too wide for the negative strips which are usually 4" long or so, and they don't guide or push or pull through, so you can capture the image, as intended, but get hung up inside the unit. I called Kodak tech support and they suggested I might "file the guide down with a finger-nail file". It just wasn't designed to work with this size negative, and you'll be in for hours of frustration if you get one for that size film.

Great projector!

This is the best projector I have ever seen! Great quality!

Easy to use

Works well for slides.

Superb product as expected. I searched through many products and watched videos on many brands. Finally was satisfied with this.
User friendly, with the 4 step printing, i doesnt take time at all. Technology is so good . will give 5 ***** for the quality.

Photo paper is hard to find.

I like the camera a lot, but
can't find the photo paper for this camera in any local store. And I have looked.
Yes, you can order it from Amazon or Walmart, but it takes longer then normal. I bought the camera for a certain occasion. I ordered a 40 box of the paper from Amazon only to find the package hadn't been sealed properly and fell out somewhere along the way. Amazon is replacing it but its going to take 6 days. Would have been great to be able to go to Best Buys, Target, or any other similar store to buy some, but nobody carries it.

Not fully satisfied

Easy to setup and scan.
Even though we have option to scan at 14/22 MB, it scans at a max of 4.2MB. Not sure why.
Also for negatives when you push it through the adapter, it is not smoothly coming on opposite side.
Cleaning brush quality is not good.
Good to digitize your negatives but don't expect excellent quality.

Really?

Recently bought this printer for a VERY important purpose and needed it pretty much as soon as it arrived.
What wasn't told to anyone? The app used for Android phones is NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME. We called. They know there is a problem and might have it fixed by the end of this week.
Sure hope their product is better than their warning about issues.....and their slow time fixing it.
I'd like to say it's worth the money....don't know!

Worst purchase ever!!!

This printer started destroying prints less than a year after purchase. I contacted customer service, going back and forth multiple times over a 6 month period before they replaced it, only to have the new one not even work from the get go! It ruined several brand new cartridges, wasting all of the money I spent on the printer, the cost of shipping it back to them to get a replacement, and the box of cartridges it wasted! I have also read several other similar reviews on the accompanying app.

Great product but showing its age.

Bought this back in February. It's used about 12 hours a week for the kids. USB jack often powers a 1st gen Chromecast for ultimate portability.
Plugged in 80% of the time to a Roku but when we do go wireless it doesn't hold a charge like it used to.
A few dead pixels later and a more finicky focus wheel but we still love this thing.
Onboard apps don't work half the time but with the Chromecast and Roku it isn't a big deal.
World but it again in a heartbeat
*some limited 3D functionality when contacted to a 3D source

It cant read the files on the SD card to print photos

I read reviews and Kodak said that it can. I don't know what to do! Why isn't it reading it?!

Works differently on different O/S's

Recieved the scanner yesterday. Works fine on my old XP but on my W7 PC there is no "Live View" being displayed (same scanner & same install disk). Have yet to try it on my W10 PC. Results are as good as can be expected from old slide/negative originals so photoShop is a must.

Negativos

No tiene forma de adaptar negativos de rollos de Advantix?? Ya que si es así, me interesa sobremanera este producto... tengo muchos rollos de Advantix que quiero digitalizar.
