The price is appealing, but the quality just isn't there. I don't mind that it looks like something from Fisher-Price. I don't mind that it takes half an hour to digitize a 50-foot reel. And I don't mind that the file runs at 30 frames per second - that can be adjusted later. But the image itself - the part that really matters - is very poor, full of digital noise, on par with old-school video CD.

@ Ty well said! The capability and parts to make a HD digital capture are dirtcheap these days...why they cheaped out on that part i don't know...I'd like to see someone modify it to do what it should...very nice concept however, and perhaps time will improve it more...

I agree with you Ken. I have Cinecolor cartoon prints from well over 70 or so years ago, and they are still as vibrant as the day they were printed and not a bit brittle.
