Red face Scanners that help us.

Thread repeated by accident!

Hi,

As any other professional here, I am trying to get some advice on buying a good scanner. What better place than this one.

Almost all the images I have retouched were uploaded directly from a digital camera card or previously scanned by a third party. I don't have that much experience scanning images and much less using scanners.

Would be possible for any of you to recommend some good scanners? It would be nice to have a list to choose from.

I have read the following thread and it was valuable but it is mainly focus on scanning negatives.

I would also like to know how to calibrate it so the color on the screen matches the output on paper. I know there have been threads with that info here but browsing through some of them some look general.

I would appreciate any help possible. Thank you!

Re: Scanners that help us.

I'll be back to you on this one...the advice I've been given is buy a file/slide scanner like the Nikon coolscan if you want high end results. The 9000 series is tops but with a high end price. I've also been told that the Epson 700 flat bed does a great job for the price for the serious amateur.

Re: Scanners that help us.

Hey again!

I have heard the same thing about Epson. I have also read in this forums that Canon makes good ones though now sure why they make a just a few models. I had a scanner once, a long time ago, that I have never used. It was made by Mustek company. I have checked their site and they have a few that look reasonable and ok for amateurs.


I will keep looking!

I'd like to get the Nikon, but from everything I read and have been told the Epson V700 is great for the money...still, however, expensive.
