Umax say the PowerLook 270 is a film scanner which combines high image
quality, great functions, a high quality software bundle at an attractive price.
This scanner is ideal for people who want to scan an existing slide and negative
stock for archiving or manipulation.
The PowerLook 270 Plus is the big brother of the PowerLook 270 and comes
equipped with the powerful anti-dust and scratch software Digital ICE,
developed by the company Applied Science Fiction. The scanner architecture was
fundamentally changed, to include an additional infrared light source, rays
penetrate the slide/negative at an angle. Dust and scratches show up as shadows.
Based on the scanned image the software is able to distinguish shadows/scratches
from real image structures and removes them automatically.
Added to the package of the PowerLook 270 and the PowerLook 270 Plus are the
award winning SilverFast Ai in its latest Version 5.5 from LaserSoft Imaging.
The new negative function NegaFix is a key break through in negative-scanning
quality. 120 negative profiles are provided as part of the software. Custom
profiles can also be created, perhaps needed for very old negatives, a range of
sophisticated tools will help to guarantee precise results.
To optimise the workflow, LaserSoft Imaging developed its batch scanning
SilverFast JobManager. With this application the user prescans all slides/ or
the negatives in at once, controls and changes if necessary each individual
image, and finally just presses the scan button. Each image will be scanned with
its specific adjustments in batch scan mode.
The PowerLook 270 Plus is also equipped with a 35mm IT8-calibration target to
aide colour management accuracy. The target is optional for the PowerLook 270.
