Scan in Your Negatives to Your iPhone

I don’t know about you but I know that my mum has a whole cupboard full of old photos and negatives from the age before digital cameras. She always wants to make them digital but the cost of doing so at the photo shop (and the effort of taking it down there) is enough to dissuade her, and the negatives stay there, gathering dust in that old cupboard.

Well with the IPICS2GO Negative to iPhone Scanner, not only can you make them digital, but you don’t even need to mess around with antiquated CDs or even USB flash drives. Accepting 35mm negatives, slides, and even 3″×5″ and 4″x6″ pictures, the device will scan your ancient media and send it straight into your iPhone. The app involved even has direct editing and Facebook sharing facilities.

Pretty funky way to scan in old photos, but I question whether it was wise to focus this just on the iPhone? Might have made sense to generalize it a little more to other smartphones too right? Either way though, cool device, and the price is pretty reasonable, compared to the prices at photo shops!

  1. Sucks that it's only for iPhone. I really wish companies would branch out to other makes. It's not like HTC's or Samsungs, for example, are rare anymore.

  2. I have a negative & photo scanner that scans directly to my computer – I'm not sure why I'd want the 1,000s of photos I have on my phone?

    (And same as Mike ^, I have a Samsung – why people don't make new toys for all makes is beyond me.)
