    I don't know if you've seen this, but...

    That thing looks really cool! A little pricey, but I'm sure it will go down...

    I saw something similar at PMA and laughed at it.
    Maybe I shouldn't have.

    5M CMOS sensor?
    It may well be lower resolution than your current camera.
    I remember the old slide duplicators for the Pentax 42mm screw mount.
    Something like that for today's DSLR or even a P&S in macro mode would be an improvement, I suspect.

    But it's on USB, and so it's simple and quick to use.
    Like the USB turntables and USB cassette decks, it's a convenience vs quality trace-off.

    Scroll down to the Sports Forum and post your sports pictures !

    It's definitely lower resolution. A max scanning resolution of 1829 dpi means that a one inch square negative could be printed at just under 6.1 inches square (@300dpi).

    Stretching that to 2100 pixels square so that you could crop a 5x7 out of it would be an increase of 14.8%, and would probably be ok. Anything larger though, and you have to lower the print resolution.

    I see this device as useful for scanning old negatives to use on the web, and for 4x6 prints. For anything else, there are better devices out there. And it would seem to be kind of spendy for a device with those kinds of restrictions.
