Taking pictures and capturing memories isn’t what it used to be. Now it truly is a snap to look back — no more taking film to the photo shop to have it developed and no more negatives to store and take up space. But there are still truckloads of memories we had before digital cameras and smartphones took over that need preserving — and you can get those memories back, thanks to Amazon!
If you have a shoebox full of old slides and negatives, here’s your chance to relive those memories at a discount. In a special deal for Father’s Day, Amazon is offering up the Kodak Scanza scanner for 20% off.
This Scanza is super easy to use and works to convert all your negatives and slides into digital files that you can share with a click of a mouse!
The Kodak Scanza scanner can convert film from 35mm, 126, 110, Super 8 & 8mm negatives. You can look through the negatives with the LCD screen and store the images on an SD card so you can easily transfer them to your computer. More than 5,000 five-star reviewers have converted their priceless negatives and slides into digital memories to share.
“Made my mother cry on Christmas seeing pics not seen in 50+ years,” a wrote. “Great little unit. A bit time consuming as each slide (obviously) has to be scanned but with practice, you can process nearly 100/per hour. The time is well spent.”
“I discovered a box of 60-year-old slides that my deceased father took when the kids in the family were young,” a shared. “I got the Scanza to recover the slides and digitize them in preparation for a Celebration of Life for my mother. Despite my nearly complete lack of technical skills, I quickly figured out the system and converted 235 slides in just a couple of hours. The digitized photos were faithful to the original shots and my siblings and I really valued resurrecting a five-year slice of our distant pasts. I was really pleased that I bought the Scanza.”
“Brings old memories to life in a snap!” a wrote. “Growing up my father took many pictures but had them developed as slides rather than actual photos. Their slide projector is over 50 years old and didn't work properly to be able to view them. I purchased this to be able to convert all the slides to computer so that we can print off for my parents upcoming 50th wedding anniversary. Very simple to use! I did not use any of the editing functions of the scanner itself as I can edit the actual images on my computer. I went through 6-7 carousels in about 4 hours. Will be using this to convert all of my own photos (negatives) to files so I can create a digital photo album.”
