Seeing The World Through Your Eyes


Canon EOS 70D

During the early days of digital SLRs, Canon was pretty much the undisputed leader in CMOS image sensor technology. Almost every new EOS model came with an increase in resolution and high ISO range, and when the EOS 7D appeared in late 2009, the company had progressed from 3MP to 18MP, and ISO 1600 …

Kodak Digitizing Box

Kodak is looking to simplify the process of digitizing old media with its new Kodak Digitizing Box.


Chances are somewhere in your home there is an overstuffed box or two filled with aging photo albums, film slides, and home movies. How long have you been telling yourself you need to get those analog memories digitized? While there are currently plenty of services available to do just this thing, Kodak is looking to simplify the process with its new Kodak Digitizing Box service.

Kodak has partnered with AMB Media LLC to make the new program possible. Here is how it works.

Kodak ships you a prepaid and pre-addressed box box. You fill it with the media you want digitized and drop it in the mail. In a few weeks, you receive digitized versions and the original media is shipped back to your door. Customers receive email updates about the digitization throughout the process.


The boxes come in four sizes: 3 piece, 10 piece, 20 piece, and 40 piece and will cost $59.99, $169.99, $289.99 and $559.99, respectively. It’s admittedly not cheap, especially as you into the 20 and 40 piece boxes, and seems to be more geared towards converting old home movies. If time isn’t an issue, and if the bulk of what your trying to digitize are film slides and negatives, you might be better off investing in an Epson V600 and scanning those in yourself.
