The Flextight X1 model should serve most photographers’ needs. Quality is unsurpassed, it is fast and it can take care of most kinds of originals. And, as with any other scanner in this family, it is easy to use.
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 Rodenstock 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. As 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. Alternatively, 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.
