Hasselblad Flextight X1 Film Scanner

Scanning has never been easier with the Flextight 3F Auto Scan feature. Simply press a button and the image is scanned in a specified resolution at 16 bits per color, thus extracting the full range of the original. The 3F file is never altered but will act as a "preview scan" when you later open it and you can re-do all operations or change whatever you want. The 6300 dpi X1 scans up to 60MB per minute and offers batch scanning capabilities.Up to 6300 dpi - 6300 dpi is more than you need in most cases and even though you can find scanners with higher optical resolution you will not find better clarity and detail rendition when scanning photographic film. This is due to the electronic handling of the sensor, the mechanical precision as well as the quality of filters and the resolving power of the Rrodenstock lens.Up to 60 MB per minute - The Flextight X1 is an unusually efficient scanner that will carry out most tasks quickly and easily. The easy to mount FlexHolder system produces a very high throughput. Aas the electronics run at a low frequency, no Peltier cooling device is needed.Batch scanning capabilities - With the FlexHolder system you either mount several originals in one holder or a film strip of 4 or 6 images. In that way you can utilize the advanced batch scanning capabilities scanning up to 6 images in one go. Aalternatively, you can utilize the unique 3F scanning feature.The 3F file and workflow - If you mount a film strip and press the 3F auto scan button the scanner will automatically detect and crop each image and save it with different names. The images are scanned in a specified resolution at 16 bit per color. In this way the full range of the original is extracted from the scan. The 3F file is never altered but will act as a »preview scan« when you open it later and you can re-do all operations and change whatever parameter you like. This is exactly like re-scanning but without the film original present.
