(Free Pressrelease) “I‘m declaring war on cheap 35mm slide scanners. Starting today, I‘m determined to wipe these things out” said Jeff Underwood, launching 1Scan‘s .

“These things give professional slide scanning services a bad name. They produce grainy, badly saturated images. They trash shadow detail and bleach out highlights. Image quality is too poor to allow editing and enlargement. Our social history is being chewed up and destroyed by these nasty things.”

“Just look at the feedback on Amazon.

Rubbish!!! Avoid at all costs!

Not worth buying.

Don‘t purchase.

Poor quality product. Instructions were some of the worst ... mains adaptor fell apart in my hands.

Useless. Can‘t be cleaned.”

“I want people to appreciate exactly how good a professional scanning service can be, our Slide Scanner Amnesty does this”.

1Scan‘s Slide Scanner Amnesty gives a full 100% credit on the purchase price, including postage, against the cost of slide, negative or photo scanning . If you are unhappy with your Veho, Agfaphoto, Ion, Summit or similar unit simply send it to us with your slides or negatives. 1Scan will take care of the rest.

In return you‘ll get high quality scans at 4000 dpi for 35mm slides and negatives; giving data files typically sixteen times better than USB units. Using top of the range Nikon scanners we‘ll capture shadows and highlights, using Digital ICE we‘ll remove dust and scratches and boost fading colours.

“Our 35mm Slide Scanner Amnesty allows people who‘ve bought these things both to get their money back and see what a good quality photo scanning service can do. I hope we can rid the world of these sorry things very soon”.
