The images are not clear. Spend a little more money and get something better.

Does what is says but get the memory card with it. Next time I would buy one with a larger viewing screen just because my eyes aren't as good as they use to be.

This device was a replacement for an Ion slide scanner for which I could not get a Windows 10 driver.

It works well for slides and for B&W negatives that are properly exposed, and reasonably well for colour negatives. In each case it is superior to the Ion scanner. My colour negatives have all needed post-processing, as the built-in colour correction in the FS52 is not sufficient. However, with any decent photo editing application it should be fairly easy to get results that are more than acceptable.

When I had a minor problem with tracking (Canada Post were slow in providing a tracking number), Dawn in Customer Experience was very kind and helpful, kept on top of the status of the order, and got back to me as soon as a valid tracking link was available and a delivery date set.

I appreciated her engagement on the issue, and that she followed it from beginning to end. (In contrast, another company that I recently asked for support from has had four different individuals all responding at different stages.)

Thank you, Dawn!!

I did not expect the resolution, colour control and creative workability to be this good! Garbage in garbage out eh? I will have good fun reworking my boxes of slides and neg's. If I find a gem I can have it scanned professionaly.

Does what it says. Easy to use, scans quickly. Images are a little pixelated when zooming in but it is great to have digital copies of old photos.

The scanner is easy to use. Needed it for 8mm film. Actual frames of 8mm film are too small for this machine in my opinion. Freezing 1 frame is useless. Better to digitize the whole film with other products out there.

Was not easy to use with my older negatives that it started curling. They get stuck in the machine and over and over again I’d had to remove the trays and put them back in again. The Tre’s are also made a very flimsy plastic and need to be handled carefully. The color changes are rudimentary at Best

Easy to use

Not happy with the quality of the result from negatives. Very poor quality image. Will try a couple more different negs to see if result any better. I am pretty disappointed, especially for something that purports to be High Resolution, 22 MP. I got a better result using my scanner to scan 4x6 prints than what I got using this to scan the negative.

Un mode d'emploi devrait venir avec l'appareil. Il est facile à utiliser. Au départ il faut y aller en faisant différents essais en manipulant les boutons sans savoir si on va briser quelques éléments de l'appareil. Après un tâtonnement il est facile à utiliser et de grande performance. Il demeure fragile.

I’ve been waiting for a reasonably priced film scanner with at least 20 megapixels. I was hoping this would be it, but after testing with a few negatives, I found the quality to be terrible. There’s no way this is 22 megapixel.Looking at the user’s manual (which I had to look up online as it was missing from the box), I found it has a 13.2 megapixel sensor. The description doesn’t mention anything about interpolation so I thought it was a true 22 megapixel scanner.In addition to this, the scanner crops the edges significantly.The only nice thing about this product is that it’s easy to use.I haven’t returned a product purchased from amazon but this one I have to.

I almost never write reviews but this product exceeded my expectations. I purchased the FS52 to scan 2500 old slides in order to share the images with family members. I was pleased with the speed and ease of scanning slides. This review is based completely on scanning 35mm slides, I did not try scanning negatives or movie film. Image quality was good and looked fine on a computer monitor and on a 50 inch TV. Some of my slides seemed to fit tightly in the adapter and required light force to feed them through but I believe this was due to some of the slides being warped slightly. I did not experience this with the vast majority of slides. One thing to remember is the last slide you feed into the adapter will not scan unless you follow it with one additional slide to push the last slide into scanning position. I scanned my slides one box at a time so I needed to do this at the end of each box. The adapter also had to be removed after each box to clear the last couple of slides. I tried the brightness and color adjustment but decided to forgo this in exchange for speed of scanning and planned on performing any adjustments post scan using PC software. The only slides that required any adjustment were slides that had poor image quality to start with. Although you can scan without additional memory in order for it to be usable with more than a few slides at a time a memory card is a must. Overall I am very pleased with this product and would recommend it especially for creating digital images of old family slides that can then be easily shared.

I really want to like this photo scanner as it is easy to use and quick. The results are not worth the effort though and I can't recommend this for scanning color negatives.The scanner is easy enough to use. Just stick in an SD card and find the right slide holder for your film or negatives. Then it's just a matter of positioning the negative and pressing scan.The problem is the resulting photo. I compared a 35 mm negative scanned with this Magnasonic to the same 35 mm negative scanned on my 2009 model Epson V600 flatbed set at 2400 dpi. There's about twice as much detail in the Epson as in the Magnasonic. The colors are very yellow on the Magnasonic where they come out just about natural on the Epson. If you plan to scan a lot of photos you don't want to have to retouch every one of them in post.I like the idea but the image quality is just terrible.

Super easy to use. Even able to scan glass slides, just remove the slide feeder.
