Epson FastFoto FF-640 scans photos in only a second

EpsonFF640If you’re a family that has shoe boxes tucked away in the attic, full of hundreds or even thousands of photos collected over the years that no one has ever seen or likely never ever will, then Epson FastFoto FF-640 High-Speed Photo Scanner might just be something for the holiday wish list.

Epson claims the FastFoto FF-640 is the fastest scanner in its class, capable of scanning pictures on average as fast as one per second. This is based on stacking thirty 4″ x 6″ prints in landscape mode in an auto-feeder tray set at 300 dpi (dots per inch). Maximum optical resolution of the scanner is 600 dpi.

The scanner uses Epson’s Single-step technology that scans the image as well as handwritten notes that may have been written on the photo’s backside. Read more…at Canoe Tech Blog.

HISY helps you snap the perfect selfie

HISY PIc 1

The perfect gift for the self-indulgent

EDMONTON, AB, Feb 13, 2014/ Troy Media/ – Last November Oxford Dictionary declared “Selfie” the 2013 international word of the year. Simply put, Oxford define it as a photograph – typically taken with a smartphone or webcam – of oneself and uploaded to a social media website.

And while “Selfie” may have achieved a certain status because of the venerable dictionary, many of us still consider such self-indulgence as either vain or simply downright annoying. This is particularly true in crowded areas when those trying to get the ultimate self-portrait create chaos as they push and shove others aside. But no matter, people are happily snapping selfies in record numbers, and continually flooding Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and other social media sites with them.

If you are one of them, you might as well at least do it right.

Unless you have a long arm or a gadget like the QuikPod – an extendible monopod – you’re still either at the mercy of the steadiness of your hand or your device’s 10-second timer to get a decent in-focus shot or the shot you really want. With HISY – pronounced “high-see” – however, that ends.
