How often have you wanted to get a copy of a photograph that belongs to someone else and then not had the time or equipment to do it there and then.
Maybe your relative refuses to let a precious photo collection out of their sight or the photographs are all stuck in a bound photo album.
Who's tried to scan photos stuck in albums and tried to turn the book upside down and place on their flat-bed scanner and wished they had four arms to achieve this?
The Flip-Pal™ battery powered mobile scanner will solve all these problems, save you loads of time and more. Take advantage of the patented flip-and-scan technology to scan photos safely while they are still in the album or frame. Scan large originals without even taking them out of the frame and then use the stitch software to combine the multiple scans into a perfect copy.
Because it is saves scans directly to a memory card you don't need to be tethered to a computer so can scan where-ever you want - in front of TV, at the dining-room table, in the car, in the garden...!
" I took it out of the box and had it working within a couple of minutes. A customer had just passed on the difficult task of scanning 120 GLOSSY photos stuck in a clingmount album so I decided this was a great opportunity to test the scanner. For non-removable photos I normally use a camera with macro and a special tripod which takes a while to set-up and which works well with matte photos but not reflective glossy photos. The Flip-Pal did a great job with the glossy photos - the first photo was disappointing as the sun got through the scanner - but this was easily fixed by covering the scanner after positioning it and before pressing the green button. I could have moved to a different room but why do that if you don't have to?
Then I tried a recently completed jigsaw puzzle - it needed 25 separate scans but the easy-stitch software did a great job of "piecing" it together!

What a wonderful device! I have 1,000′s of unsorted photos, and many albums, and had despaired of ever being able to organize and preserve them. My regular scanner made copying each photo a chore and I was afraid I would never live long enough to do them all. Flip-Pal is just wonderful!

This tool is so incredibly useful for genealogy. Folks understandably don’t want to part with their old photos or albums even for copying, but to watch me make the copies while sitting at their kitchen table is a much different story–old photos almost jump out of the corners.

LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I have taken this on several trips with family and have scanned hundreds of photos that they would never have let out of their house otherwise!
