One of my favorite holiday memories as a child was dusting off old photo albums, flipping through the pages, and making sure all those loose, irreplaceable negatives didn’t get lost in the shuffle. Modern family photos look a little bit different—we can quickly pull them up on our laptops and smartphones, broadcast them on our televisions, or share them across social media in an instant.
Today on Amazon, you can score devices that finally let you marry old family photos with modern technology—and they’re 30 percent off! Kodak Digital Film Scanners take negatives and easily convert them into digital JPEG files that can live on your computer and the cloud, so they’ll never get lost or damaged.
With a digital scanner, you keep the nostalgia alive and make sure those precious photo albums are never forgotten about.
These devices can handle film negatives, 35mm slides, Super 8 and 8mm negatives, and lots more of the memories you’ve been saving for generations. And you don’t have to be a digital dynamo to operate these little machines. Intuitive user interfaces walk you through the process of converting your entire photo library.
They’re even lightweight and portable enough to carry from house to house, collecting images from relatives near and far. Today, you can create a brand new family tradition for a steal.
Below is a run-down of this Kodak Digital Film Scanner mega-deal—any one of these next-level devices would make a unique and heartfelt holiday gift.
This trusty little sidekick lets you scan, view, and edit photos from seminal events like your parents’ wedding or your ancestors’ holiday get-togethers. Then convert and save old 135, 126, 110, Super 8 and monochrome negatives and slides in crisply detailed digital files. This baby is loaded with modern technology that lets you greatly enhance the quality of each image.
One reviewer shared: “I have thousands of slides of trips dating back to the 1970's. I would like to get rid of the slides, but don't want to lose the memories. Searching for an answer, a friend told me about this scanner, what a God send. All the slides are in labeled carousels. I have been scanning various trips, saving them on my hard-drive, setting the trips-up into slideshows with background music and watching them on our large flat screen TV. The scanner is easy to us, the colors are fantastic, and I have a long way to go but I am having fun.”
This scanner lets you convert 35mm, 126, 110, Super 8 & 8mm negatives and slides into convenient JPEG digital files easily. Its digital interface and one-touch buttons make the process a no-brainer, and let you share images from your high school graduation or your great aunt’s going away party in time for end-of-year Facebook montages.
“The quality and speed of this scanner was very pleasantly surprising,” one shopper raved. “Not only was it fixtured for all the slides and negatives we had in our ‘legacy box’ but it went through them as quickly as you could press the scan button...We scanned all our legacy slides and negative, all 3,218 photos in a couple of nights while watching TV. Now we have the images for our family to peruse and are backing them up in the cloud instead of squirreling them away in a box in the closet. It has brought back many wonderful family memories.”
Take a walk down memory lane as a family this holiday season with this personal slide viewer. It doesn’t actually convert your old negatives and slides into digital photos, but instead projects them into a vibrant digital slideshow.
“My father was an avid picture taker and so I have hundreds and hundreds of his slides,” a happy shopper shared. “The Kodak slides from the 40s, 50s, and 60s really come to life with this excellent slide viewer! The quality of the slides after so many years puts many digitally taken photos to shame.”
