  • CanoScan FS2710

    A friend has offered me his little-used Canoscan FS2710 transparency/neg scanner. Does anyone have any knowledge of these scanners, and, if so, what would be the maximum size (top quality) print i could hope to achieve with it from a perfect Kodachrome transparency? Any other advice/thoughts about the scanner would be appreciated. TIA

    Max res according to spec is 2720 ppi x 2720 ppi. That should yield reasonablely good 8 by 10 prints.

    See this thread for more discussion.

        Hi All,

        How good a quality scanner do you need for scanning B&W negitives and color prints?

        I'm using a Umax2200, but I believe that it will probably not be good enough. I got a decent result on it with a print, but I was not too concerned about top notch quality....

        Scanner - Diff Res - Diff Quality
        by FotoFixer
        I have found that 300 dpi on my scanner looks bad, so when I need 300, I scan at 600 or 1200 and resize it. 150 or 180 also looks fine. 500 is just as bad as 300. Somewhere between 500 and 600, is where it changes to needing more than one pass. What is going on, here, that lower and higher resolutions...

        I have been doing digital photography for about 2 years, and Photoshop for a little less time.

        However, I have thousands of decent photographs on standard 35mm that I would like to be able to work with in Photoshop.

        I am guessing that scanning prints of the photos is the...

        Hello All!

        I recently repaired a friends HP 5370C scanner. When testing it I found out it does a much better job than my Microtech scanner (6000 series) The detail and color accuracy is superior.

        I am looking to update my flat bed scanner. I have a PC system with USB ports....
