If you were born in the last decade, digital photography could be the only form picture-taking familiar to you. Though digital cameras have effectively led to the gaining endangerment of film photography, a full century of images recorded to film negatives, photo paper and slides contain too many precious images worth ignoring. Hammacher Schlemmer has added a device to their product catalogue targeted at saving great individual or family moments to one of the world's most popular smartphones, the Apple iPhone.
Called the One Step Photograph and Slide to iPhone Converter, this scanner dedicated for use with a Apple iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S device has the ability to digitally perserve some historically popular methods for storing images. Photoographs 3x5 inch and 4x6 inch sizes, 35mm slides as well as 135 film negatives can be quickly converted to an Apple iPhone attached to the One Step Photograph and Slide to iPhone Converter. Prior to being stored as a JPEG on an Apple iPhone, a user can utilize a free app to adjust attributes such as colour and size of the digital image.
Powered by 4 AA batteries, the One Step Photograph and Slide to iPhone Converter can operate without a computer or the need for an AC power supply.
The One Step Photograph and Slide to iPhone Converter retails in the Hammacher Schlemmer catalogue and through their on-line store for $59.95 US.
