The Photograph To Digital Picture Converter


I have a box that moves with me to every apartment never getting smaller, it holds all my old print photos and a few albums. I get very romantic over this box, because so much of my past is tucked away inside. But, I find myself increasingly worried about losing even a single item or damaging a precious photograph. I also find myself taking photos of my photos to share with friends (as you can see here).

Hammacher Schlemmer’s Photograph To Digital Picture Converter efficiently converts photographs into digital images faster than a conventional scanner. I'm giving it the mom-safe seal, meaning that if my mom can use it so can anyone!

Photographs are placed into a tray that slides into the converter, you just press the button and the image is recorded. The entire image is captured with a 5MP CMOS sensor (just like in your own camera).

This device currently works soley with PCs, so I’m out of luck, but I like the concept and the functionality, so I’m keeping my eyes open for a similar Mac-friendly device.

Price: $149.95 at Hammacherschlemmer.com
