Though most film scanners accept film facing either direction, the II requires that the film face emulsion-side down. Fortunately, the DiMAGE Scan Utility is easy and effective to set up and use to output raw high-bit scan files, including batch processing. In this case, the scanner out resolved what my lens and film combination were able to do; however, at ppi output, the full size print would be just over 16″x24″ or about 40cm x 60cm. We can’t guarantee the Logitech M mouse will boost your productivity, but at this price The apparent Dmax seems much lower than the Nikon

The metal case of the original has been replaced by a white plastic box that can stand up without assistance. There are two main advantages HDR offers over using Photoshop to adjust and color correct raw image files. Then you select one of the four supported film types So if you don’t have the option of using FIrewire, you’re going to get fairly slow scan performance on the Elite II compared to the later models.
Unfortunately, with all the years of use, it’s become a flaky unit where it seems like it wants a longer and longer wake up period.
An instruction manual and a warranty card complete the kit. What was most evident working with these less-than-optimum images was that the greater specification depth and new light source and optics of the scanner produced raw scan image data with much more latitude for correction and adjustment.
No other formats need apply. Indicators are embossed, but it would be nice to add Braille. Visit manufacturer site for details. I was thinking of diage FS scanner as well, but then found a lot of claims, regarding it’s noice and bad overall performance, so this option is no longer available for me plus there is no ICE in fs, afaik.
I’m planing to buy a scanner for 35mm film.
That, however, is also something of a convenience. Regarding overall sharpness, unless you’re planning to enlarge the pictures to their maximum based upon divided in the total pixel dimensions, a bit of pre-sharpening in your photo editor and post sharpening before output goes a long way in producing acceptable results.
Those have pointed feed ends, rather than the blunt ones of the II. The stand helped keep that narrower, longer unit upright. It corrects image characteristics of people, nightscapes, mijolta and skies. But our enthusiasm was tempered when we rimage the included software could not actually calibrate the scanner.
Fast user switching is not supported on either Macintosh or Windows operating systems. Most of the cull images I began my testing with did not require such large color corrections; for the most part the issues with them had eliite do with overexposure and underexposure and “unfortunate” lighting. I can’t say the subject matter is outstanding, but miolta it can give you an example of what’s possible with the Plustek i. The scanner ships with two plastic, hinged holders. It’s difficult to draw the line between the raw capture and the corrected file particularly in the case of negativesbut we saw some gorgeous histograms.
It can only scan 24x36mm 35mm film. The auction listing for this product that will end the soonest. The caveat is that it significantly increases scan times. We have been less thrilled with the main Scan utility, but the problem is the interface rather than the functionality.
The Nikon was rated by the manufacture to scan at PPI. This allows you to adjust each dimension of image quality to get to a finished image result in a continuous flow, including sharpening and if necessary using SilverFast’s own GANE grain and noise reduction and ACR color restoration facilities.
Vuescan software allows IT8 profiling, and works on systems newer than XP, which neither Lasersoft Silverfast nor the Minolta software do. The II is stable enough without it.
Continue to next page 01 The Minolta was advertised at PPI and actually gave out not only a scan of that size but also of that resolution. In each case, the results showed fine detail and excellent tonal range and color capture.
The file is just four times the size on disk. Exposure Control provides sliders for composite and individual channels.
