ROCHESTER, NY & EDISON, NJ — Eastman Kodak Company has released the Kodak Scanza digital film and slide scanner, which is now available from its North American brand licensee, C+A Global. The versatile film-to-JPEG converter digitizes a variety of formats, including 35mm, 126, 110, super 8 and 8mm negatives and slides into optimized 14-megapixel or interpolated 22-megapixel digital files. Images can then be transferred to any Mac or PC via an SD card for editing.
The all-in-one package comes ready to go with everything needed to start scanning slides and negatives: various film adapters and inserts, a built-in LCD color display, an easy-to-use operational interface, plus multiple cables for device hookup.
"Kodak has a steep heritage in film and, perhaps more importantly, helping people preserve life's precious memories. Many folks have boxes filled with Kodak film ready to be given new life, with no means of doing so," says Joel Satin, VP brand licensing at Eastman Kodak Company. "With the Kodak SCANZA digital film scanner, reliving these moments and bringing them into the digital world is as easy as scan, save and share."
The Scanza features an intuitive user interface that allows users to enhance the image quality of their film, including the ability to adjust RGB levels and brightness for ideal image coloring. With the scanner's gallery mode, users can display images in a slideshow, then rotate, flip and delete images as they see fit.
The 3.5-inch HD LCD screen features adjustable brightness and convenient tilt for easy operation and image viewing. The package comes with HDMI/video cables for viewing images on a television, an AC adapter, USB power cable and a film cleaning brush. Pricing is $169.99 on Amazon, and it comes with a one-year limited warranty.
