Excerpt: priced at a little over £450. It is about half the size of a classic domestic A4 flatbed scanner and is of a similar weight. It has a relatively high Dmax of 3.8 (dynamic range), is a true scanner incorporating infra-red dust detection and has a maximum scan resolution of 3600 dpi. This can give a scan of 16Mb at 24 bit and up to 47Mb at 48 bit in Tiff format. It is now available for a little above £300, but does the 3600 dpi, ICE, ROC, and GEM justify the outlay?
Pros: Very high resolution scans, Effective dust removal, Robust slide and film holders, Software supports multiple file formats, Histogram compensation adjustment
Cons: Slow capture times, A little expensive, Low productivity
