it works! : )

Does it work[edit]

So far so good using Windows 7 (x64) - Although it appears I'm having sharpness issues. It could be me though. More testing needed.

What does it scan[edit]

35mm film loader will scan 12 frames per batch!

Where does it live[edit]

In a brown paper bag (with my face)

What belongs to the scanner[edit]

  • Scanner!
  • AC/DC adapter
  • USB cable
  • Film Guides: 35mm (negative/positive), 35mm (negative/positive mounted slides (may be missing enclosure)), & 120 roll film strip


Loaders are black and straight forward to use(compared to HP - which I tried, but to no avail). Also, I used the CanoScan Toolbox software too (link below). NOTE: Don't forget to take off the white protective plate located on the underside of the scanner bed top (door?) - It won't work without this piece out!!

It appears there are Linux drivers as well, however they have not been tested.
