Skyla Memoir: The Digital Picture Frame with Built-in Scanner

skylamemoir_box.jpgOoooo... functionality that happily surprises us! Delicious. LiteOn IT (a maker of optical storage solutions for PCs) has announced the Skyla Memoir which will retail in December for $220. You have your usual digital frame features: 8-inch LCD with 800x600 resolution and 4:3 ratio, 1GB internal memory plus ability to take memory cards, flash cards and USB devices. THEN you have scanner features: a 600dpi scan bed that can handle prints up to 4x6. The USB ports are key if you'd like to hook up your laptop and save the scanned images there as well. Not too shabby!skylamemoir_scanner.gif

A New Digital Photo Duo: The HP Photo Printer B8550 & Scanjet G3110

Every digital photographer needs a quality printer and scanner to craft their wares. Among the products HP unveiled at Photokina 2008 this year, we thought this was a great combination for home use--all the features you need at a reasonable price. hp_printerb8550.jpgThe HP B8550 Photo Printer ($305) has got a five-ink system (individual cartridges) and an extra-large feed tray that will print photos up to 13x9 with a maximum print resolution of 1200x1200. Other highlights include the multi-card reader and 2.4-inch LCD screen you can use for PC-free printing and editing of images.hp_scanjetG3110.jpgAs for the Scanjet G3110 ($100), you've got a 48-bit color 4800x9600dpi scan resolution for high-quality scans of photos, slides, negatives and even 3D objects. The included software is handy, including editing tools (red-eye, dust, fading) and ability to scan directly to printer or email.

Convert Negatives to Digital with the Digital Film Scanner

This little machine is incredibly generic looking (and barely branded) but it's actually an affordable negative scanner for the common man, woman or chicken. It's hard to invest the money in the negatives of the past when there's so much digital goo to spend on! You simply insert a negative strip or slide, push a button (like a copy machine) and it scans your images with a 5-megapixel CMOS sensor. Save them to your PC via USB cable as TIF or JPG files. There's also software included to edit, crop and resize images. They also speak of a 3600dpi "image enhancement" but don't hold your breath on that one. Unfortunately this isn't built for MAC folks. Selling for $99.95 -- see details at Hammacher Schlemmer. (Catchy!)
