Honestech Film Scan&Save digitises your old snaps

Slides and photos get a new lease of life

If you’re anything like us, you’ve got a drawerful of old photos and slides that never see the light of day, but probably contain some of your best shots. After all, in the pre-digital photography days, film was expensive and rolls of it finite, ensuring each photo was composed with care. Products such as the Film Scan&Save make light work of digitising images you’d love to see again.

This Honestech box even has a lightbox on the top so you can see what those dusty negatives contain before pressing Scan. The device captures images at up to 1800dpi (maximum detail is 3648x2432 pixels) or the equivalent detail of a 10Mp digital photo. Auto image-correction and transfer to either SD card or to a PC via USB options are provided, The Film Scan&Save also works independently of a PC. 

The scanner costs £79 inc VAT from online gadget stores.
