Film scanners are scanners which are specialized in digitizing film material (positive or negative). While a flat bed scanner illuminates the applied image from below with a light source (reflective originals) a film scanner illuminates an image like a slide projector.
Film scanners have very high scan resolutions because a large image should be generated out of a tiny positive or negative. Most film scanners offered here are designed for 35mm and APS films. However, there are also devices for medium format films and large format films.
We only offer high-quality film scanners for people who emphasise high image quality. Absolute low-cost scanners mostly have strong shortcomings with image quality wherefore we do not offer them. After all we want you to achieve satisfying output with your new film scanner.
You can find detailed information and reviews on all film scanners and everything concerning scanning on our film scanner website.
