If you’ve got a large stack of old photographs that you’d like to convert into digital pictures, scanning them with a conventional scanner is going to take a lot of time. This is where the Desktop Photo to Digital Picture Converter comes in. Essentially, it is just a digital camera with a tray, and instead of scanning your old photographs, the Converter snaps a picture of the photograph using a 5 megapixel CMOS sensor. So while the quality won’t be as great as a good old fashioned photo scan, if you’re not too picky about detail, the 600 DPI image you get from the convertor should be sharp enough for you. However, its fixed size really limits its usefulness to 4R or smaller sized shots. So while it can be really useful, it won’t be for folks who have larger prints to convert. The Desktop Photo to Digital Picture Converter is available now for $99.95.
