5 out of 5 eggs Great for scanning slides 07/19/2011

This review is from: HP Scanjet G4050 (L1957A#B1H) Up to 4800 x 9600 dpi USB Flatbed Scanner


Can scan 16 slides at once, dust removal works very well


Hp software is very very bad, you need to buy VueScan pro software ($70.00 life time licence - will work on many scanners without additional licence) to make it work properly.
Will not work above 2400 dip - but this is all you need

Other Thoughts:

Can scan a tray of 36 mm slides in about 5 hours. Actual scan with dust removal takes about 90 minutes. Just load machine walk away and come back later to reload. I am also doing my 110 mm Kodak slides without a problem. I made a 110 mm mount for the slides from old 35mm slides (cut the center out of the slide to mount the 110 slide and then did the scanning - works perfectly and very nice pictures at 2400 dpi)
