Microtek extends its FilmScan range with two new models -
Microtek announced the launch of two new additions to its popular FilmScan range today. FilmScan 1800 and FilmScan 3600.
With its high 1800dpi resolution, FilmScan 1800 can scan your 35mm images and print those images at up to 10' by 8'. A maximum dynamic range of 3.4D captures subtle highlight and shadow details and ensures accurate colour reproduction. The easy to use loading system enables batch scanning of up to 40 exposures from a single 35mm roll, whilst the advanced Auto-focus system automatically delivers sharp, accurate scans every time.
FilmScan 3600 has all the ease of use benefits attributed to the FS1800, but offers more in terms of quality and speed. The extra quality comes from the high 3600x3600 dpi optical resolution giving a maximum dynamic range of 3.6D, whilst the extra speed comes from the FireWire connection as well as the USB interface. A FireWire card is included with this scanner, in case the end user does not have one.
Both scanners are Macintosh and Windows compliant and come with Adobe Photoshop Elements and the scanner driver.
The FilmScan 1800 will cost around 270, the FilmScan 3600 around 500.
