Question about Printers & Copiers

I purchased a stratford labs digital image copier model GFP-001 to convert slides to digital pics. Have it installed on my computer (windows xp) but can not get it to scan a clear image. No website available to access help came with the device and can't find it online... any suggestions? Thank you.

    I bought the same one and the images are clear, but anything that is white is very over exposed. Can't seem to figure out how to fix it.

    I have the same problem with this same film and slide scanner. Everything white is extremely overexposed.

    Same problem. Normally exposed slides come out extremely overexposed. Post digital editing will not recover the lost information.

    Any help????

    Exactly the same problem as the others ....35 mm negatives come out very well, but the slides are unusable (overexposed).

  • Anonymous Dec 01, 2008

    all 35mm slide whites greatly over-exposed and unviewable. I do not know how to fix this. I think the design specs are screwed!!.

    We have the same problem. All the whites are over exposed.

    same problem, the indoor pictures are overexposed and the outdoor ones are underexposed. There is no obvious way to adjust the exposure before the image is scanned.

    I have the same problem as others: horribly overexposed slides with no way to fix this. There is a mention of overexposure in the troubleshooting section of the quick guide, but the system does not correct this. Also I have a problem with calibration--it does not turn on, even though I have pressed the button several times. It seems to turn on and then off. There is no website for help or support with this copier.

    I found that scans of negatives were not the correct color and there's no way to adjust it. I used Photoshop to enhance the color, but it still isn't vivid the way prints made from the negatives were. I redid the Calibration but that didn't help.



    I found the color to be better on scanned slides, but I found they were underexposed compared with prints made from the slides or with looking at the slide itself. I am wondering if there is a difference in moving from computer to computer?

Where can I get the software for the Stratford Labs GFP-001 digital image copier for Windows 7?


The manufacturer's website advises that the GFP-001 Image Scanner is, Compatible with Vista and Windows XP systems Only. Requires USB version 2.0 Only.

Sorry, but I do not believe you will be able to find support for Windows 7, unless your scanner functions with one of the generic drivers inlcuded in Windows 7.

Help calibrating


It's on one of the dialog boxes within the software. Click on the Photoimpression6 icon and then click on Get Photos at the left of the menu bar and then click on Acquire from Scanner. This brings up a dialog box and at the lower left corner is a Calibrate button. It should be pressed without any negatives or slides in the viewer.
