Photo Scanners, Film Scanners and Slide Scanners
Most of our photo and film scanner comes with picture enhancing software to remove scratches and dust saving hundreds of hours.
Scanning film is better than scanning prints, because film scanner is using the original image, but the print is a second generation copy.
Image size and memory cost in film scanners can be quite huge when scanning film, because you are realistically able to scan at very high resolution. For example, a full frame 35 mm color negative scanned at 2400 dpi will be about 3400x2200 pixels, and about 22 megabytes. Scanning at 2400 dpi and printing at 300 dpi allows enlarging that printed image 8 times more than the original film size (2400/300 = 8). Scaled by 8, so that the 1.4 x 0.9 inch film size (36 x 24 mm) prints 8X larger gives 11.2 x 7.2 inches. It will look great in regard to detail if printed at 200 to 300 dpi (assuming the printer can handle it).
Film scanners; ranging from the most basic models for simply producing a web-shareable image to the top-of-the-line versions for creating large-scale, print-worthy files, all film scanners, in their most basic sense, perform the same function—using a light source to illuminate your film and an image sensor to record the details. Where film scanners begin to vary from one another is the precision and sophistication of this process, along with the technologies used for recording. More than offering just an increase in resolution, higher-end film scanners will also provide you with a longer dynamic range, higher Dmax, more accurate color balance, greater sharpness and, to put it simply—film scanner gives better and more realistic results. The ultimate goal of a film scanner is to acquire as much information from the original as possible to give you latitude for further editing, retouching, and printing.
