Excerpt: One of its points that i will praise is for its excellent design. It produces a high scanning quality for pictures with varying complexity, not to forget the Digital ICE technology that it possess. The only low point is the slowness when scanning film. Overall, it is reasonably priced as well, however, if you do not need the scanning of films function that comes about with this scanner , you may wish to look about for other scanners for your daily usage.
Summary: I'm only an amateur and this review might not apply for those more advanced in this line of work. I purchased this scanner in order to print and archive old negatives (50+years) given me by a relative. My previously owned scanner was limited to 35mm format. The scanner worked like a dream. Most of the color negatives had had color shift, and the scanner's software made excellent corrections. Using the scanner's software to correct for exposure, color, contrast, etc.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy Setup, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Scans all sizes of film
