Pandigital Announces a Computer-Free Photo Scanner


Even the most stalwart supporter of digital photography is bound to have some pictures around that aren't available in digital form.  Whether it's pictures you took with a film camera or old photos from your parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents, you need a scanner to get it onto your PC.

Pandigital's new Personal Photo Scanner/Converter is a slick setup in that it doesn't require a PC at all.  You can simply enter your photos, hit scan, and let it go to work.  After you're done, take the included SD card out of the scanner and put it wherever you need.  You can even skip the computer altogether and pop it into a digital picture frame.

The Pandigital Personal Photo Scanner/Converter is compatible with photos as large as 8.5" by 11" and can handle anything from wallet size on up.  It utilizes twin rollers to push your photo through so it can be scanned at a resolution of 3800 x 7200 and at 24-bit color depth. 

If you like, you can connect the scanner directly to a computer, or use one of a number of accepted memory cards. You can pick it up now at an MSRP of $149.
