Needing to go digital but not wanting to leave those film photos behind...

If you want to lose the paper in your office, but you've taken a lot of film photos over the years, this may be just the thing you're looking for. HAMMACHER SCHLEMMER are taking pre-orders for this rather interesting device. Here's the info from their website:

This device quickly and easily converts photographs into digital images, allowing you to confidently preserve your memories for generations to come. Faster and easier than a conventional scanner, this device instantly captures the whole image using a 5 MP CMOS sensor, the same found in digital cameras. With up to 1,800 dpi resolution, 10 bits per color channel, automatic exposure control and color balance, clear, accurate digital images are assured. Photographs are placed into a tray that slides into the converter; the touch of a button records the image instantly. For photo transfers and power, it has a USB cable that plugs into a PC running Windows XP and includes software that allows you to edit, crop, and resize your pictures. Accepts 3 1/2" x 5", 4" x 6", and 5" x 7" photographs. 6 3/4" H x 10 1/2" W x 8 3/4" D. (1 lb.)
