Firebox's USB Negative Scanner

I don't have a non-digital camera anymore, but I do have a lot of old photos in boxes in the hall closet, and a lot of negatives to go with them. My mom even has boxes of slides in her hall closet.

Wouldn't it be good if there was a way to turn old negatives and slides into digital photos? Enter

Firebox's new scanner, which you plug into your computer via USB and then feed negatives or slides into. They are then transformed into good-quality digital images which you can crop, save and upload to photo-sharing sites (or whatever else you like to do with your digital pics).

Plus you can get rid of those old boxes of pics and finally have some room left in your hall closet: it's win-win!

Buy it for $141.50.

I love the idea of an easy way to scan negatives and slides. They are the hardest. However from a preservationist point of view you should never throw away the original pics and negatives, especially if they are the only copies. Digital is still not considered permanent. How many of us have files that are now unreadable due to software or hardware changes? Digitize YES, but keep the originals.
