Ion’s “Film 2 SD” Negative Scanner Digitizes Old Snaps In A Snap

Buy Now at

A company called ION have produced an ingenious little negative scanner that should make preserving all your old photos a little easier. Called the Film 2 SD, it quickly scans negatives from your film camera and either stores them on an SD card you pop in the top, or transfers them directly to your computer over USB.

The Film 2 SD includes an LCD display on the front so you can preview and flip your images and will scan them in at up to 5-megapixels in resolution. Ion claims each scan takes one to two seconds and with one-touch operation, the hardest part about using this gadget will probably be the loading/unloading of film strips.

Including a 1GB SD card, the Film-2-SD Negative Scanner can perform and capture up to 700 5-megapixel scans right out of the box, without needing to be connected to your computer – plus will also accommodate up to 8GB SD, micro SD and SDHC cards for extra capacity.

The ION Film-2-SD Negative Scanner is available now from for £99.95 or for $129.87.

This is a great little SD film scanner. I really like it! Lots of old models don’t have a way to scan onto memory cards, which makes scanning so much easier when you’re at your computerless nans house and stuff.

I’ve just bought aFILM 2 SD and I’d like to buy two more slide film holder.
Please could you let me know where I can get these items.
Kind regards

Hi Santosh, Firebox deliver worldwide with overseas shipping handled by TNT – so it shouldn’t be any trouble for them to get the Film 2 SD Scanner to you in Pakistan.

I just bought this scanner ion FILM2SD and thought it was also to be for slides. Well the slides reverse and look like negatives. So, it does not work for slides but just works for pure negatives.

Je l’ai acheté a Noël. Il était défectueux et je l’ai ramené au magasin. Depuis, plus de nouvelles!…
