If you’re already familiar with budget scanners, you’ll know that scanning film on flatbed scanners costing under $500 is pretty well a waste of time. Assuming that 4800 DPI is adequate to scan Transfer 16mm Film to Digital Toronto is wrong, because it comes down to the quality of the optical system that delivers the image to the CCD. Keep in mind you get what you pay for. So on that note, I’d like to say I am extremely pleased with Minolta’s Dimage Dual Scan III. They didn’t sacrifice features or quality on this one.
This scanner caught my eye while surfing various photography web sites. All of the reviews gave glowing remarks on its ease of use, software, and picture quality. When I figured out it could be purchased for less than $500, it didn’t take long to make arrangements to visit a local photo superstore while on a business trip in Toronto. After a live demo and a surprise in-store discount, I walked out with scanner in hand, anxious to get home and finally release my hundreds of slides into the digital ether.
Set-up was a cinch. It took no time at all to install the software, plug the USB cable into my PC, and scan a slide. I was impressed with the results of my very first attempt. Two nice features – something Minolta calls Pixel Polish and Auto Dust Brush – helped render an accurate and clean scan. The brilliance and sharpness of transparencies is also rendered truthfully.
An 8 X 10 printout of the scan on my HP 7550 was stunning. Because I had been waiting for quite a while to digitize my collection of transparencies, my wife had to pry me away from the office for the next 2 weeks. Scan – print; scan – print, and on and on I went.
Compared to my previous flatbed scans, the difference was obvious. Scanning a slide on my Microtek Scanmaker 5900 flatbed at 4800 DPI yields a 95 MB image that lacks in detail. The optics simply do not deliver a crisp image to the CCD. Compare that to a 30 MB clear image from the Minolta – no contest!
