Anyone know about the Sharper Image film scanner?

Discussion in 'Scanners' started by David Nebenzahl, Feb 21, 2009.

  1. Saw a TV commercial tonight for the "Sharper Image Converter", a film
    scanner being offered for $100.[1] Does anyone have any knowledge of or
    experience with this device?

    They say it scans "up to" 3600 dpi at 10 bits per (color?) channel. I
    wonder what the actual optical resolution is, as well as the image quality.

    [1] OK, it's $99.95. I'll *give* them a goddamn extra nickel if they'll
    only call it what is, 100 bucks.

    Personally, I like Vista, but I probably won't use it. I like it
    because it generates considerable business for me in consulting and
    upgrades. As long as there is hardware and software out there that
    doesn't work, I stay in business. Incidentally, my company motto is
    "If this stuff worked, you wouldn't need me".

    Offhand it looks a lot like one of the Plustek offerings.

  4. You mean it's the innards of a regular digicam, and it's not a scanner?

    Could you be a little more specific? You seem to know something about
    this thing.
