- Universal magazines DIN 108 for 36 or 50 slides (35mm)

As you can read in our test report about the Braun Multimag SlideScan 6000
the Braun Multimag SlideScan 6000 has a nominal resolution of 5000 dpi; the effective resolution, however, is 3900 dpi, which corresponds to about 20 megapixels. A scan in the highest resolution takes about 5 to 10 minutes depending on the settings. For a slide magazine with 100 slides you have to calculate with a whole day working time.
The Braun Multimag SlideScan 6000 can digitize a complete magazine automatically in the batch mode. However, it happens again and again that a slide frame gets stuck so that you have to restart the scan process. Espescially if the magazine or the mounts are not 100% norm standard, if thy have labels or if the edges are not completely plain it comes to interrupts. Especially glass frames or carton frames get stuck again and again at the transport movement.
You have to add the time for the rework in the image editing programm to the scan duration of 5 - 10 minutes per slide. If you don't have a good image editing program on your computer we recommend you to choose Photoshop® Elements above. If you operate the scanner with the professional SilverFast Ai Studio scan software and if you make an IT-8 colour calibration before scanning, you will safe a lot of time for the post process in the image editing program, since essential colour errors of the scanners are being stored in a correction profile.
The Multimag Slidescan 6000 plays up to its strength with the professional scan software SilverFast Ai + IT-8 slide. In order to get the optimum image quality we recommend to operate the Scanner with Silverfast. With the SilverFast IT-8 colour calibration you can individually colour calibrate your scanner and so work in a professional colour managment workflow. Thereby the scanners's image quality is remarkably increased and you don't need to spend time for extensive image editing. That's why we offer the Braun Multimag Slidescan 6000 in combination with the SilverFast scan software for a low bundle price. You can find detailed information about SilverFast on our SilverFast website.
Please, choose above, below the price information, if you want to order the scanner with or without Adobe® Photoshop® Elements. You can find information about the different versions on our website Adobe® Photoshop® Elements Version Comparison.

When working with film strips it can often happen that you accidentally touch the emulsion side of the film. The damage often is irreparable. You can avoid damages to the film material and comfortably insert film strips into the scanner or film holder by wearing fine cotton gloves.
Anti-dust spray is used to clean film material - no matter if it's mounted slides or film strips - by removing dust and fluffs with a flimsy current of air without touching the film material at all. There is no better, more comfortable and more efficient way to clean your film material.
For working with single negatives or positives we highly recommend using tweezers, because otherwise you run the risk of touching and damaging the film.
Those who work with digital images - no matter if they come from a digital camera or from a film scanner - should absolutely calibrate their screen. Without a screen calibration performed with objective criteria you run the risk of wrongly adjusting the settings of the scan or the image editing software, which makes the image look right on your screen, but will cause unnatural alienated colours on other output devices (printer, image service, new screen).
