March 2012 – Sydney Australia
It’s official. The world has gone digital - but
it wasn’t that long ago that photographs were taken on film and printed on photographic paper to be kept as a keepsake. They filled albums and sometimes, shoeboxes and drawers.
Nowadays photography is generally stored digitally on the family PC or hard-drive, flash drives and optical disks, which not only keeps them safe from damage but also makes them conveniently accessible and easily catalogued.
So BenQ’s new Digital Photo Scanner (CP70) makes perfect sense, as it enables the old prints taken prior to the acquisition of the compact digital camera to be converted into digital format, for long term and convenient storage along with the newer images.
Quick and easy, it takes just ten seconds to scan an old photographic print, business card or any document (up to A6 in size) directly onto SD/SDHC card. Once scanned, the file can then be stored electronically via connecting the scanner to a PC and copying it to the designated digital storage device. Images are easily duplicated and re-printed, which is particularly handy to conserve old prints, preventing further deterioration.
Said Chee F. Chung, general manager for BenQ Australia, “The CP70 is a valuable tool for the preservation of memories and is particularly useful to anyone researching and documenting their family history. But it’s not just old photos of past generations that can be preserved – many of us have photographic prints that were taken only a decade or so ago that may now be digitalised for safekeeping. Wedding photography, photos of our children as babies, treasured family memories,” she said, “which were taken prior to the evolution of the digital era.
“The CP70 is compact, lightweight and so very simple to operate. Plug it in and feed in the print or document. Within ten seconds, the image will be captured and converted into digital format onto an SD/SDHC card. No PC is required for the digitalisation of the image, however the CP70 comes with a USB cable which can be used to connect the device to a PC to enable the photographic material to be viewed and transferred to your desired storage choice,” said Chung.
