Busbi BUSIMG001 Negative and Slide Scanner Front View

We´ve all got a box of old negatives or slides inherited from our parents or grand-parents languishing un-loved and unseen in a dark corner somewhere. Images of Great Uncle Bulgaria on the fabled ferret hunt of 1954 in Upper Basildon wait eager to be discovered, yet rarely seen.

Wouldn´t it be great if we could bring those images of familial times past into the digital age for future generations to share? Or at least have a good laugh at if nothing else…

Well now you can with the Busbi BUSIMG001 Negative and Slide Scanner. Just connect to a laptop/PC using the USB cable (no power connection required), install the Arcsoft Media Impression 2 software (Windows and Mac compatible) and you´re ready to start.

The included slide carrier holds three slides and will scan at resolutions up to 5 megapixels (2592×1944) using it´s built in CMOS sensor. This is a scan resolution that equates to a conventional scanner at 1800dpi.

The slide holder is a little fiddly to use, but will probably ease with use. Scanning is quick taking only a few seconds at the highest resolution setting. Detail is also good, but do bear in mind this is also dependant on the quality of the original slide – if it was a rubbish image you´re going to get a rubbish scan!

Verdict

The Busbi BUSIMG001 Negative and Slide Scanner is a great way to digitise your old family slides/negatives and preserve them for posterity in the digital world. No more fiddling with slide viewers or projectors, the scanned images will be on your PC with your other photos ready to be viewed however you choose. So come on, Great Uncle Bulgaria deserves it!
