35mm Slide Converter
A 35mm slide converter — also often known as a
35mm slide scanner — is a device that gives users the ability to make copies of their slides and
transfer them into digital copies. It is an essential product for people who have important slide collections at
their home or work that they would like to convert to a different format.
Advantages of 35mm Slide Converters
There are many obvious advantages of utilizing a slide converter
to transfer the format of your slides. The first and most obvious is that they will allow you to change the format
of your existing slides.
Since these slides can only be presented or viewed in one way, the
slide converter gives its users a variety of new and interesting formats. For example, the slide converter can help
you print out your pictures if you want to compile a photo album or you can simply store them digitally on your
computer or a CD for later use.
Another advantage of using a 35 mm slide scanner is that it can
save you a lot of money. If, for example, you were to take all of your slides to a photo shop and ask them to
convert them for you, it could end up costing you a fortune. But by simply buying a converter and doing the job
yourself, you can save a lot of money.
Also, as with most electronic products, as the technology
improves, the prices drop. If you simply do a little bit of research online, you are sure to find a quality 35mm
slide scanner at an affordable price.
Scanners also give you the added benefit of creating a backup
version of your slides. You can simply store them in a digital format on your computer hard drive or CD or zip
drive for safe keeping.
Why worry? If these slides contain priceless family memories, do you really want to take the chance that they get damaged or lost? With 35mm slide converters, you
don’t have to worry. You'll have a record of the pictures electronically, and if you wish, you can even them
print them out in hard copy and perhaps display your memories in a nice photo collage frame in your home or
Buying a 35mm Slide Scanner
Once you have made the decision to buy a slide
converter, there are many places you can shop for one, or just a slide viewer, for that matter. You can always
look for a model at a nearby electronics store, or on any of the thousands of online stores.
You should ask about specific shipping instructions and methods,
and make sure that the seller promises to properly package them before they send them to you. As examples
of two specific slide converters, we discuss both the SVP 3 in 1
scanner, and the Canon CS5600 scanner and
converter on the next pages.
