Do you have an impressive collection of old films taken with your archaic cameras that are sitting there, while the only camera shop in town has long stopped developing negatives? Enter the VuPoint FC-C520–VP Slide & Film Scanner to save the day – it is equipped with a 5-megapixel sensor and a 2.4″ preview display that lets you see what you’re about to scan, while the 32MB internal memory can be augmented by an SD memory card. Strangely enough, it connects via USB 1.1 – somebody at the engineering must’ve missed the memo on USB 2.0 eons ago. Unfortunately, this $129.99 device won’t automate your scanning process completely, so get a hot cuppa if you want to spend an afternoon with it.
