Taiwan manufacturer Pacific Image Electronics, specialists in designing and manufacturing color flatbed scanners since 1993, recently announced the launch of a new USB 1800dpi film scanner aimed at the home and SOHO market. The PrimeFilm 1800U is expected to sell for an unprecedented $199 street price when released in the first quarter of 2000.
Here's a preview look at the PrimeFilm 1800U - possibly the most affordable way to get digital images yet!
The PrimeFilm 1800U does not use a film holder. Film strips, positive or negative, in either color or black and white, are simply placed under the 35mm transparent viewing window, then with a simple touch of the scan button, you are all set to go!
