I'm using ScanWit 2750i with Vuescan for scanning. It has enough resolution for my B&W and occasional colour work. I think it delivers that "full" 2700 dpi (it's 9,5 MP file), the grain is clearly resolved and image is pretty sharp.
What bothers me is that it doesn't scan the whole frame border to border vertically. It's not much that is missing, maybe 1-2 mm, but sometimes it really makes difference. And I'd really like to have that full frame scan with borders.
Another thing is that it scans in 6 frames batches. It does it fast but my dream is to scan whole roll at once (put the film in, little setup and forget about it until it's done).
So I'm interested in buying one of those Reflecta RPS line sanners or smth similiar. I did some research about them but still have some questions.
- Are those scanners able to scan the whole frame? Maybe with extensive borders to crop them later.
- Is it unattended process to scan whole roll ? Like feed the scanner with a film and leave it do its job.
- Will it scan other formats like 24x24 from my Taxona in that automatic way?
- The focus is fixed or auto/manual ?
I suppose IQ would be similar to my ScanWit which is fine for me. Maybe someone here has/had both and could give some thoughts. Thank you
