The scanner was great and well worth the money.

marchpe, Ebay

  • Summary: The i900 scanner is a great piece of equipment. I primarily need to scan medium format film and was very please with the results. The film scans were clear and sharp. The details and shadows were captured which is what i expected from a good film scanner.

Good scanner but not for beginners

Tom O, Amazon

  • Summary: The software that comes with this scanner is the weak point, it crashed numerous times. Don't use the CD, download everything from the website. It comes with a pretty complete manual, but the way this software is designed it needs it. They could spend more time explaining what they mean by a batch. Also, to have a transparency scanning area of 8 x 10 and make a carrier that holds two strips of 35mm film is crazy, what about the rest of the area?

Great scanner, but not the greatest...

J. Lockard "Wannabe Photographer", Amazon

  • Summary: I loved this scanner, to a point. I shoot a mixture of 35mm and medium format film. This scanner looked like the ideal solution, it didn't cost nearly as much as a dedicated medium format film scanner, it allowed me to do glassless scanning of negatives and still allowed me to scan 35mm, other transparancy sizes *and* documents. All was well and good till I checked out the medium format film scanning tray.

Good Quality but a bit slow

D. Smith "Toto", Amazon

  • Summary: After dealing with one dud they sent out to me, I got one that works and am quite pleased. I'm using this mainly for the slide scanning capability. The only issue I've had so far is with the software. They send you two programs you can use; Microscan and Silverfast. Microscan is generally the quicker program but Silverfast has superier options including an impressive dust and scratch removal option. Apart from a few heavy clicks, it's a very quiet machine.

A very good scanner for negatives and photographs

Don Green "Middle Class Kinda Guy", Amazon
4 January 2007
  • Summary: I purchased this scanner so that I could scan old black & white and color negatives, and old black & white and color photographs. The results were great. The software that comes with it is easy to use and the Digital ICE works great if you want to restore your old photographs. Scanning 35mm slides was more of a challenge so I ended up using my Nikon Coolscan IV ED for those instead.

Outstanding quality just a little slower then I would like

Skip Kennedy "Skip Kennedy", Amazon

  • Summary: Being a graphic artist/photographer I have used lots of different scanners that are out there, and Mircrotek scanners are some of the best on the market. The scans I get on this scanner are outstanding; the digital ICE photo print technology is a real time saver if you scan lots of prints. I use the ScanWizard Pro software that comes with the scanner and I have no complaints.

  • Summary: I bought this scanner based on its good reviews found on the internet. I needed to scan quite a few different images including newspaper, magazine, b&w photos, and color photos for a documentary film the results were excellent. I dont have a ton of experience with other scanners but everything we scanned came out great!

Guter Negativ-Mittel- und Grossformatscanner

lagreinify, eBay.de
15 March 2010
  • Summary: Dieser Scanner kann sowohl Aufsichtsvorlagen (Briefe, Bücher) also auch Durchsichtsvorlagen (Negative, Dias) scannen und letztere als Besonderheit auch noch glaslos. Das heißt die Negative werden nicht auf eine Glasplatte gelegt, sondern in speziellen Halterahmen befestigt - ähnlich wie glaslose Diarahmen. Das hat den Vorteil, daß die berüchtigten Newtonschen Ringe nicht auftreten können und keine Glasplatte gewartet nzw. saubergehalten werden muß.
