Anybody who has tried scanning a photo knows that it isn't as easy as you would assume. The process generally entails taking your photo and putting it on a scanning device, downloading some type of photo scanning software, waiting, and waiting and some more waiting, then cropping the picture and then taking the remaining bits and sticking them into a folder somewhere.
Well the smart minds over at Pandigital have just developed a new photo scanner that will help to cut down on the painful process of photo scanning. The new Personal Photo Scanner/Converter allows you to feed documents up to 8.5 inches by 11 inches in size through the scanner and then have them written straight to a memory card at a 600dpi resolution.
By doing this you can certainly speed up the photo scanning process by letting you run streams of photos without dragging the old family album to your computer. You no longer have to connect via miniUSB and do it the old fashioned way, but you still can if you want to. This thing is completely wireless except for one thing. In the specs there is no mention of a battery which would make this device truly portable.
The Personal Scanner/Converter is definitely a step in the right direction for home photo scanning. With being able to scan photos of up to 8.5 inches by 11 inches directly to an SD card or any other type of memory card via the 5-in-1 card reader and saving them as 600dpi jpeg images, you can make home photo scanning much easier. Full specs are out now on Pandigital's Personal Scanner/Converter and you can pick it up for a retail price of $149.99.
