Rollei has announced two new film and photo scanners. Featuring 9-megapixel area-array sensors, both models are extremely fast in use, requiring only one second to digitise a slide. Offering one-touch scanning and SD card compatibility, the Rollei DF-S 290 HD (€199.95) offers is supplied with a carriage for mounted slides and negatives, a slide magazine, a cleaning brush, HDMI, USB and AV cables as well as a power adapter. The scanner has an HDMI out port that allows users to view their freshly digitised images on an HDTV. The Rollei PDF-S 300 Pro (€249.00, pictured) additionally allows users to scan prints of up to 10x15cm, and comes with a dust- and scratch removal function (though it lacks the HDMI connectivity of the DF-S290 HD).

Rollei DF-S 290 HD

The Rollei DF-S 290 HD transfers all your photos that are on negatives and mounted slides onto PC or Mac at the touch of a button. The digitised images can also be stored on SD/MMC cards.
Equipped with a 3-inch (7.62 cm) LCD colour display, the scanner boasts excellent technical figures. It offers a resolution of 9 million pixels, a scanning resolution of up to 3600 dpi and 24 MB of internal memory. Thanks to a slide magazine ? a slide-stacking function ? up to 20 slides can be digitised in a matter of seconds. The best is often saved for last: an HDMI TV output (1920 x 1080 pixels) is the ultimate highlight of the scanner, transferring your photos onto your HD TV with impressive picture quality.

Included in the package:

The Rollei DF-S 290 HD is supplied with a generous accessory pack. This comprises a carriage for mounted slides and negatives, a slide magazine, a cleaning brush, HDMI, USB and AV cables as well as a power adapter. For professional post processing of the pictures, the Zoner PhotoStudio 12 editing software is also included in the package.

Availability and price:

From the beginning of May 2011, the Rollei DF-S 290 HD will be available in shops for a recommended retail price of EUR 199.95.

Rollei PDF-S 300 Pro

With the Rollei PDF-S 300 Pro, Rollei presents a newly optimised, all-in-one miracle: for all those who want to digitise not only their slides and negatives but also their paper prints. The Rollei PDF-S 300 Pro boasts a 9-megapixel sensor and a scanning resolution of up to 3600 dpi. Photo enthusiasts can go into detail with this. In addition to colour negatives, loose and mounted slides in 36.5 x 24.3 mm format, this model with a 2.7 inch (6.85 cm) LCD colour display also scans paper photos up to 10 x 15 cm in size.

Slides, negatives or photos are scanned and displayed on the preview screen in a record time of one second. The special Magic Touch technology removes dust and scratches on slide and negative scans at the touch of a button. The PDF-S 300 Pro works with an infrared light source which detects and corrects surface irregularities on the inserted negative or slide. The scanner can be used as a stand-alone unit entirely without a PC.

Thanks to the SD/SDHC card slot, the pictures are saved directly onto SD/SDHC cards and can also be viewed with ease with a digital picture frame.
The connection to the PC is via USB 2.0. The colour depth amounts to 10 bits per colour channel.

Included in the package:

The PDF-S 300 offers the amateur photographer a particularly comprehensive package, so no additional, often expensive equipment is required: a slide holder for four mounted slides, a film holder for film strips with up to six images, a mains adapter, a USB cable, a TV cable and a user manual.

Availability and price:

The Rollei PDF-S 300 Pro is available in stores from the end of April 2011 for a recommended retail price of EUR 249.00.
