The Kodak Scanza is a simple, non-professional film scanner. Opening the box you're greeted with HDMI, USB and video out cables, an AC adapter, user manual, the scanner itself in bubble wrap below , a toothbrush shaped surface cleaner and a handful of plastic film holders. Pretty much everything is plastic and feels a little cheap in its construction quality.

In terms of film format flexibility, the Scanza is This is not for scanning a whole reel of 8mm film, this is specifically for scanning individual frames of 8mm or Super 8 slides. The biggest thing the Scanza has going for it is ease-of-use. Even if you've never scanned film before, you can expect to be up and running in around 10 minutes.

To operate it, plug in the power the scanner uses a widely available micro-USB to USB cable for power either to an AC outlet or your computer, insert an SD card this is where scans are saved , press the power button, select your film type, load the holder with your film, insert it and press the capture button. If you're plugged into the wall and the 3. This additional connectivity feels like a bit of an unnecessary feature, but I'm not going to count it against the Scanza because connecting it to a TV reminded me of using a slide projector and that is the most Kodak thing about this product.

The scanner is 14MP but offers a 22MP scan option that interpolates the images and ups the resolution from x pixels to x pixels. In use, we found the 22MP mode entirely unnecessary. Also, the scanning area ends up slightly cropping your photos, mostly horizontally - if you're a perfectionist, this may bother you.

Unless your film is severely expired and has a significant color shift, I'd stay away from these settings to keep your scans as accurate as possible. The scans in the gallery above are from a 35mm roll of Fujifilm Natura Below is an example of an image scanned using the Scanza left next to the same image scanned by a local photo lab here in Seattle right.

Scan quality isn't terrible, but a quick comparison to a professional lab scan shows the limits of the Scanza. For simply preserving memories, or scanning to share on social media, the Scanza's quality should be good enough.

This is not a bad product, it's just an overpriced one for what it is. For similar cash, you can invest in a decent flatbed scanner with film trays - like the Epson V - which offers higher-quality scans and greater versatility, but at the cost of speed and ease-of-use. For those simply wishing to painlessly make digital copies of years of photos, the Scanza is a decent option. But we have a hard time believing it is much better than this similar option with no Kodak label, priced half as much.

My objective is to scan to post to Instagram and maybe Flickr. The quality is decent enough for that. And I have lots of those 2. The scanner serves my objective. It is quick and convenient to use. If I decide to make prints I have a Dimage , which is obviously better, but slower and more tedious to use. The colour correction capability, limited as it is, is useful for 40 year old Agfachrome. Once uploaded I can make fast corrections in Photoshop or, on my iPad, with different apps.

I am shooting some negative film again, but no longer have access to a colour darkroom. It will eventually pay for itself in savings I make by no longer having the camera store scan to CD or the web for me, and I have more control over those.

I'm disappointed with this review. It has overlooked a very important factor in its evaluation, and that is colour depth And that value is critical when evaluating quality. I have an old Nikon CoolScan that renders bit colour depth. Sure, it clunks along, but nonetheless produces good results.

Can be useful items. A bit long in the tooth but still giving acceptable results, which of course also relys on quality of media being scanned. But any scanner is better than none if you want to preserve some of your old film based photos yourself, though for small quantities better to pay a professional to do it. I used my iMac 27inch screen as the light source using a range of full screen colours from pure white to slightly warmer to suit the image, set the camera on a tripod and rattled through heaps of 35mm slides with good 21mp results.

I could make the exposures as long as was needed and also do triple bracketing when needed for better dynamic range results, shot in raw. This worked out really well for me. The hassles of old faded warped scratched mouldy slides dating back to was another story Did a search and nothing 'came up'.

The reviews on Amazon vary and would like an objective review from DPR. Sure the technology is 20 years old, but it still does a better job than most. Please Fujifilm! For the amount of money needed to purchase this scanner, better add a few more bucks and get a decent Plustek scanner dedicated for 35 mm format and call it a day.

For medium format or larger, a different scanner type is needed with much more money to invest. Ease of use would be it's main selling point. Looking at the examples, scan quality is not doing 35mm film any justice, unless you want to look it like this.

Like mentioned in the article, for example an Epson V-series flatbed with filmstrip holder offers much more flexibility and way higher image quality based on the examples of this little Kodak scanner. Scanning film just takes quite a lot of time. For those who want to get their developed pictures quickly digitized, just let a lab do it for you and pay more per roll of film. What a waste of space. Ironically it will take you longer to scan on this than a decent scanner for a far worse result.

There's no quick way to get a good result unfortunately you need a reasonable machine and software to get good results from negatives especially. It's a shame the real Kodak doesn't fill this gap in the market with something more useful and simple for the average person to use just like the old scanners they used to make. If you have slides you can just take the pic and crop - it will be infinitely better than this piece of c p.

Anyone here remember Kodak RFS? This one reminds me mentioned device, and - believe me - these memories are not very nice To inform us. The article contains useful information regarding product choice. This is exactly what I want from DPReview. Agreed with the above reply - even I dislike this product, it is a good idea to have it reviewed. This might motivate the manufacturer to improve in the future and customers to compare with other existing products. I encourage dpreview to do more film scanner reviews including those for larger film formats since this is again a growing market!

Fair enough. Nikon only downside is shadow depth of film especially affect slide film mostly. Plustek doesn't have autofocus and that is a negative point for slide film where as you need auto focus due to film curve. Those two can be so expensive. It serves its purpose, it's a basic scanner for people who aren't into extensive image manipulation.

My guess is that this isn't a film scanner but instead a digital camera that takes pictures of film with software to do a proper inversion from negative to positive. I wish there were a different name for these things.

While they will serve most people adequately, It's a bit like calling a Keurig an espresso machine. With a slide duplicator, or macro lens in front of a light box, you can photograph your negatives of any format, with raw capability's, in fraction of time.

The results surpass any of the above. I was looking at film scanners a year ago to digitize thousands of my parents' 35mm frames, but I ended up buying a macro lens.

It was about the same price as a decent film scanner, but figured the lens was much more useful after the scanning was all done. With a custom bracket for 35mm film mounted to a light source, a tripod and a mm macro lens on an APS-C body, I got excellent results: bit raws at about MP after cropping.

The workflow to create positives can be a little finicky, but it's worth it for the better native resolution of the scan IMO. Cheaper than a macro lens and less prone to optical issues than slide duplicators. I built myself a cardboard contraption that holds a film strpe hiolder and covers the lens from stry light. Works just great. But what do I know? It's not what I understand as 'scanner'. A scanner take information slice by slice, or line by line.

The thing just takes a picture of a slide or negative. I doesn't scan line by line. Better than a total loss of you film material. But for that price you can probably give your film material to a professional film scan service. Due to it instantly take picture not scan line by line. A lot of this stuff is made by a company called Winait. I posted a link to their website about a week ago but it has since disappeared.

It's essentially just a cheap small-sensor digital camera with a fixed macro lens inside. Yea this one has an LCD and better resolution but it's still the same old same old. Which scans slides great, if slowly, as I jut discovered after years of neglect. Oops I see I screwed my previous comment up, blindly typing the ridiculous price.

A brief history of… Kodak EKTACHROME film

This past summer I came into possession of my grandfather's 15 Kodak photo slide trays. They were neatly boxed, though collecting dust, in the closet beneath the stairs at a family owned cabin in Grayling, Michigan. They had been there for at least a couple of decades. For some reason this was the summer I decided to pull them out and take a look. As I started to view these slides, with only a magnifying glass and some harsh fluorescent light, I quickly became transfixed.

We are thrilled to contribute to the APPO blog to talk about rare format slides. We scan a million slides a year at EverPresent and they are a fun and easy way to relive your old family trips and special occasions.

Ektachrome has a distinctive look that became familiar to many readers of National Geographic , which used it extensively for color photographs for decades in settings where Kodachrome was too slow. Ektachrome, initially developed in the early s, allowed professionals and amateurs alike to process their own films. It also made color reversal film more practical in larger formats, and the Kodachrome Professional film in sheet sizes was later discontinued. Whereas the development process used by Kodachrome is technically intricate and beyond the means of amateur photographers and smaller photographic labs, Ektachrome processing is simpler, and small professional labs could afford equipment to develop the film.

But that is not all that makes Kodachrome unique among 35mm color films, as many of you who have collections of Kodachrome slides know. Besides reproducing the color of reality with a unique color palette, Kodachrome has also proven to be much more enduring than other color films. Any collection of Kodachrome slides stored in reasonably good conditions will have its original color and density very much intact, like some of our slides that go back 60 years.

Беккер постоял минуту, уперев руки в бока. Затем поднял коробку, поставил ее на стол и вытряхнул содержимое. Аккуратно, предмет за предметом, перетряхнул одежду. Затем взял ботинки и постучал каблуками по столу, точно вытряхивая камешек. Просмотрев все еще раз, он отступил на шаг и нахмурился.

Сотрудник лаборатории систем безопасности схватил ее за руку. - Мисс Флетчер. У нас вирус.

Колеса неистово вращались на рыхлой земле. Маломощный двигатель отчаянно выл, стараясь одолеть подъем. Беккер выжал из него все, что мог, и отчаянно боялся, что мотоцикл заглохнет в любую минуту.

Офицер подошел к столу. Кожа на левой руке загорелая, если не считать узкой светлой полоски на мизинце. Беккер показал лейтенанту эту полоску. - Смотрите, полоска осталась незагорелой.
