iPICS2GO Turns Your iPhone Into a Film and Print Scanner

The iPICS2GO Negative to iPhone Scanner is a simple device that lets your iPhone double as a scanner for photos, both film and prints. It works with 35mm negatives and slide film, as well as 3×5 and 4×6 prints.

Just plug your iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S into the top, fire up the powerful editing app and feed a photo, slide or negative into the PICS2GO. With the app’s easy-to-use controls you can scan your pics in seconds, and save them as a digital file that’ll last forever. Or at least until the next technological revolution.

Battery-powered and designed purely for the iPhone 4 and 4S, the iPICS2GO is a handy little gadget that you can use anywhere in the house. Scan your family album while you’re watching the telly; or take it round your Nan’s house and go through her black and white snaps. There’s never been an easier or more convenient way to save your precious, perishable photo prints.

The scan quality is, well, iPhone camera quality, but it’s a pretty cheap option considering the $63 price tag.

    Why, for the love of god, why? When people are practically giving away old flatbed scanners that can through-scan film …

    Personal film scanners cost about that much these days. My 5 year old USB scanner included a kit to scan film.

    Seems like one of those things iPhone users use so they can brag about using iPhones. How hard is it to plug in a real scanner into a USB port?

    flatbed scanners absolutely SUCK for film scanning period.
    I wish there was a viable alternative for negative scanning

    I mean the idea is pretty neat, but is there really a need for scanning an existing digital file that you could easily transfer in various portals? I’d rather buy an instant printer than a scanner.
