Photographers can now digitise positive and negative medium format films quickly, easily and to a professional quality high resolution thanks to the introduction of the new Reflecta Midformat Scan MF5000.
The scanner is described as a "state-of-the-art CCD scanner with fast image processing" and features a 3-line CCD image sensor allowing for scans of 3200 x 3200 dpi optical resolution and 3.6 Dmax optical density.
The Midformat Scan MF5000's scan speed – a colour scan at 3200 dpi and 24 bit colour depth takes only 200 seconds, very fast for a colour CCD scanner – means that top quality scanning is no longer the time consuming exercise it used to be, while the Magic Touch feature, which automatically removes dust and scratches via an infrared sensor, helps ensure that the final scan is perfect first time.
Mains powered, the scanner is connected via USB 2.0 to a computer (either MAC or PC). It weighs around 5.6kg and measures 320mm x 165mm x 160mm and will scan the whole range of 120 and 220 films, including 6x4.5, 6x6, 6x7, 6x8, 6x9 and 6x12cm formats. Holders for four framed slides up to 3.2mm thickness, film strips with up to six frames and for one or two medium format film frames are included.
The Midformat Scan MF5000 comes complete with power adapter, Cyberview X scan software, Adobe Photoshop Elements 9, holder for four framed slides, holder for film strips with up to six frames, medium format holder and full user instructions.
The scanner is available now with an RRP of £2,250. For more information please visit the Kenro
