Product Description

Introducing the latest SVP Model PhotoScanner PS-6800 is an innovative standalone film scanner that instantly converts 35mm film negatives, slides and photo prints into digital images without the need for a computer or application software. Now you can preserve all their photo memories by turning the millions of photographs now stored on slides and negatives into digital images to preserve them forever. We have created a very simple-to-use device that works right out of the box and produces a 22-megapixel digital image in five seconds at a push of a button. Unlike similar devices currently on the market, the SVP PhotoScanner PS-6800 does not require a computer or learning a new software program, and it takes very little space to operate, store or transport.

5.0 out of 5 stars Multi-function scanner Dec 31 2012
This scanner scans 5 megapixel image resolution, which isn't the clearest, but for the price I paid, it is quite a nice deal. This one plugs directly into to the computer and you can view the files after scanning. It scans films, slides, and photos, it is actually more than I needed. My order arrived quickly with no custom issues.

I have scanned my slides but, the driver was not very stable and I haven't see the support from the company.
I hink that the one ho can operate without the computer is better.

1.0 out of 5 stars Works Poorly Dec 28 2012
Verified Purchase
For the amount of money it cost, I did not expect much. But I did expect it to at least give reasonable results when scanning slides. However, the quality of the scans are so poor that they are not useable at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars Has good features, but also some serious flaws April 25 2012
By G. Vozzo - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is my second scanner for mounted slides. I returned the first (another product) because it wasn't handling high-contrast pictures well (washed out, with no shadow detail) and had blotches on the lens or CCD camera that could not be removed through cleaning. It also had a lot of bad pixels on the LCD. This scanner is more expensive and has better features. Here are the pros. First, according to the manual, its native resolution is 14MP, with an ability to interpolate to 22MP. Second, its slide loader, which holds four slides, is superior in build quality to some others, opening and closing easily and holding the slides without difficulty. Overall, it operates pretty well. But the cons outweigh the good qualities:

First, this scanner also washes out high-contrast pictures. Compared with the previous scanner I tried, this one reveals a little more detail and has somewhat better color fidelity. However, multiple scans of the same slide yielded different degrees of detail. You might need to play with the positioning of the slide in the scan slot in order to get the best result.

Second, just like the first scanner, this one also has blotches that cannot be removed by cleaning the lens. They show up in every scan. The problem is worse with this unit.

Third, and worst of all, like some other slide scanners I've read about, this one crops at least 10% of the left and right edges of each slide. That's a significant amount of picture (4 mm or more of a 35mm slide). The previous scanner I tried didn't have this problem.

The LCD has at least one stuck pixel.

I'm weighing my options. First, I will attempt to see if the manufacturer can correct these problems. But I know to be cautious. I could be told to send the unit in for repairs, only to get back something refurbished and still broken, with a note saying that it's operating within tolerances and according to factory specs. I've been down that road before, multiple times, and don't want to go there again. Hopefully, this won't happen! But I want to point out that it can.

If you want to see if your scanner has blotches / bad pixels on the CCD, just set it to scan slides and scan an empty slot (no slide). The image should be white or gray and fairly uniform. Dark or light spots will show up on regular slide scans as well as this test, always in the same positions. Larger spots will be visible on the LCD screen as well as in the final image.

*** UPDATE - June 8, 2012: SVP / Slim Sharp's customer service via e-mail is very responsive. However, handling of defects and returns has been extremely sloppy. Despite written agreements, no attempts were ever made to fix the problems I reported. Apparently, no one read the correspondence I was told to send in with the defective scanners. Responses by customer service also tended to be very impersonal. The end result: I've returned the product twice, have had to work to get my money back in full, have wasted over a month on this, and am now giving up on slide scanners altogether.

1.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, poor image quality. Dec 15 2010
By Burke L. Storti - Published on Amazon.com

While the SVP PS9000 black Digital Film 35mm Negative & Slides Scanner is easy to use, I judge the image quality as poor. Ease of use was the main reason for purchasing this item. It was extremely easy to use. The basic design is very clever. While it is not actually a scanner but a digital camera mounted inside the product enclosure which results in quick image results (compared to a traditional scanner). I believe this product needs further development to improve image quality. Especially for reproducing images of glossy print photos. The glossy surface of such photos act as a mirror which reflects faint images of the interior of this devise. I noticed a dark rectangular shape in the center & diagonal lines on the upper corners of the "scanned" images. I believe the image sharpness & color reproduction is also of poor quality. The ability to reproduce quality slide images was also unacceptable. With the "crop" settings for 3 sizes of print photos, resulted in eliminating about 10% outer edge of the image. Poor image quality was my reason for returning this item.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Value for price range June 24 2010
By Jean Lancaster - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This product is a good value for the price range. It allows you to easily copy negatives, slides and various sizes of pictures. Quick, easy, and very simple to figure out how to use. For the home user wanting to preserve large volumes of negatives, slides or pictures, I would recommend this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great scanner, fast, good quality Feb. 25 2012
By globaljewels - Published on Amazon.com

I did a lot of research here before finally choosing this unit, which we got this for my mother-in-law for Christmas. We added a 2GB SD card (about $10 from Walmart), the instructions were easy to follow and we were scanning within minutes. My husband and I work as a team and we scan 200-230 slides per hour. It's fast, you can see images on the screen, and the quality is good! I was able to edit/lighten darker slides in iPhoto. We've scanned in over 1,000 slides and 300 photos so far. It's priceless to have old memories in digital form. We are delighted with it - great buy for the price!

Bought this for my parents. They have boxes and boxes of negatives and old photos that they are scanning into this machine and it's very user friendly and helping them successfully tackle a huge project! It was a great gift and they love using it.
