you like the b/w image better than color.
ShotCopy works by
holding a specially designed Slide Negative Holder in
just the right position in front of a digital camera lens so the image
can be captured with a click of the shutter. A white reflector
behind the image allows illumination of the slide or negative from behind. It is simple, quick and

memories with family, friends and the world!
NOTE: ShotCopy also includes 4

ShotCopy is easy to
use because it requires no fancy clamping mechanisms to hold the
images in place for copying. It uses the unique properties of
magnetism to position slides, negatives and prints in the
correct position for copying by a digital camera that can focus to
within one-inch of the camera lens.
Due to ShotCopy's design it will work with most digital cameras that can
focus to within one-inch of the camera lens. We
would like to say all digital cameras but it would be impractical for us to
test ShotCopy with every camera made. This is why it's important
for you to test your digital camera before buying your very own ShotCopy.
We have found through our extensive experience that most
camcorders (with still picture capture capability) can easily focus to within 1"
of the camera lens.
highly recommend you use or acquire a video camcorder which has
both digital still and video camera capability built into one
device. Almost all camcorders can focus to well within
one-inch of the camera lens without the need for supplemental lens
attachments or use of a detachable macro-lenses. The
camcorders sold today no long use videotape, since it's been
replaced by flash-drives or SD chips (as shown below) which
provides faster capture
and stores in file formats similar to what's on your PC for still digital pictures and video.
Example of camcorders today
which capture both stills and video on SD memory chips without
videotape or plastic disk storage.
Before Purchasing ShotCopy Giving your camera the
remember before purchasing ShotCopy is to test your digital camera
with a 35mm slide to see if it can focus close enough
so that the slide image fills the camera's viewfinder. This camera feature is required to copy slides and negatives.
During testing make sure your camera's zoom-lens is set for
wide angle viewing. It is interesting to note that on some
older cameras there may be some image barreling. This is
when the edges of the four sides of the slide or negative looks
like its bending inward. If your camera is having trouble focusing
at this distance try a set of supplemental close-up lenses for
support of our great product, here are a few user testimonials that
typify the types of comments we are receiving about ShotCopy.

How I transfer
slides to PC?
I use a device called
ShotCopy that uses my digital camera to copy slides to my
PC. Basically the device makes it easy to hold images in
front of the camera lens for easy copying. It is brilliant
in its simple, straight forward design and has saved me
many hours of copying. I have tried scanners and
slide/negative holder camera boxes and found them to be very
time consuming just to setup and capture a photographic
Just wanted to let you know...
already copied over a 1000 slides using ShotCopy and I wanted to
tell you about all the time I have saved and how easy it was to
use versus my scanner. Thank you for a great product that
really does the job quickly using my digital camera.
Love those Magnetics...
ShotCopy and just got the SnapMount for my iPhone. It is
amazing how I can use my iPhone to capture my family
pictures. I even messaged a few from my iPhone as I was
copying. My sisters and brother loved it!
Just wanted to let you know...
months ago I bought your ShotCopy. Just wanted to drop you a
line and let you know how I love my ShotCopy. It's
absolutely genius how simple it is to use. Especially
using magnetics to hold everything in place once everything is
setup for copying. Since I only use one camera for
copying, I marked the position of the camera and copy stand on
the base, so when I setup again I'm ready even faster.
Wishing you much success,
Bought a new camera...
I bought a
new camera for myself for Xmas. I wanted to buy ShotCopy
before but found out my old digital still camera would not work.
So this year I killed two birds with one stone. I bought
myself a hi-def digital still and video camera all rolled
up into one device. The camera focuses so close I can take
a snapshot or video of an ant running around. Looking
forward to receiving my order!
Finally a product that works...
I have been
looking and evaluating different products online for copying slides. I have even tried a few with disappointing
results. I must say your product has worked perfect for me.
Especially with my new digital video camera. It was so
simple to use once I got it setup and it was fast.
Saving big bucks...
to thank you for a brilliant product! This is so easy to
use compared to other things I have tried. I especially
like not having to load and unload trays. What a time
What an ingenious idea...
When I first got ShotCopy I
was a little concerned how everything was held in place. It was a stroke of genius to use
magnets to allow easy setup and ease of use. I've been
showing my old pictures around to my family and friends using
your Shotcopy device and they were amazed they were copied using
my digital camera! I will be sure to tell others about
your great product.
I was skeptical...
skeptical at first. It seemed to simple and to easy to be true. But I felt I had
to lose by giving it a try. My other alternative was an expensive
slide/negative scanner. I had already tried a high end scanner. It was taking forever to scan over 100 slides. Plus the results
were not very good. With ShotCopy and my new digital camera I
finished the project in less than a day!
Thanks for saving me money,
time with a great product that made the job easy.
