Dedicated Film Scanners

These are ideal for producing high-quality scans of 35 mm film.You should always scan at no less than 4000 dpi and set the scale size to 100%.Anything more than these settings is interpolation. You can always redistribute the scanned pixels to end up with a larger image using the Photoshop Image Size command. The trick is to uncheck the Resample Image box as illustrated below.

There are two types of larger format scanners, Flatbed and Professional Drum or Imacon scanners. Professional scanners always produce higher quality scans but these aren't always essential for digital photographers working with current ink jet printers.
