For dedicated 35mm slide scanning, the Microtek ArtixScan 4000tf Scanner provides high dynamic range combined with fine software control to handle a wide range of originals, even with shadow detail.
The ArtixScan 4000tf's patented design moves the film holder in a single pass, leaving the lens fixed. This system delivers high dynamic range and image quality. Working with an original scanned in 4,000 dpi optical resolution, you can create several levels of enlargement, which is particularly helpful when you need to crop your original. You can even enlarge a 35mm scan to a full A0 size with pre-press quality output.
Scan both negatives and slides (positives) and auto-feed a strip of six frames or four mounted slides. With 16,000,000 dots measured per square inch, a dynamic range of 3.4, and a maximum density of 3.5D, the 4000tf handles transparent originals from 24 x 35mm, 35mm filmstrips, and APS film (with an optional cartridge). It can capture highlights and shadow detail with the color accuracy demanded by imaging professionals.
The 4000tf comes with SilverFast Ai 5.x and NegaFix, for delivery of accurate negative scans in a simple, three-step process. The ScanWizard Pro includes a choice of 24-bit or 48-bit output, RGB or CMYK scanning, full 36-bit curve control, ColorSync support, and batch scanning. The unit can be daisy-chained with a Microtek flatbed SCSI scanner and is supported by a one-year warranty.
