ArtixScan F2

Enhanced from ArtixScan F1, the ArtixScan F2 captures sharp, astonishing and detailed images more faster. With 4800-dpi optical CCD and the Auto Focus technology, it enables users to focus on a specific area on scanned reflective or films and to get more sharper image. Only Microtek provides the Emulsion Direct Imaging Technology (E.D.I.T.) for distortion-free glassless film scanning, efficiently eliminating any of problems associated with normal glass transparency scanning such as Newton rings and surface imperfection. Standard bundled with ScanWizard Pro for PC and Silverfast for Mac and PC makes this product even more fit for design, photography and printing requirement

Auto Focus scan head delivers accurate scanning results
This feature allows the scanner to adjust the focus position on images through the movement of the CCD, resulting in better image quality for a chosen area of the target, which can especially be best seen when used with uneven, creased photos and film.

Twin scanbed with patented Emulsion Direct Imaging Technology (E.D.I.T.)
This is a patented “glassless” scanning system built into the lower bay of Microtek’s dual media scanners, allowing the scanner CCD to directly read the emulsion side of the film during scanning without any interfering pane of glass. This effectively eliminates problems associated with normal glass transparency scanning like Newton Rings, resulting in distortion-free images.

Built-in film scanner with Snap Trans™ holders
The ArtixScan F2 is a built-in film scanner with a separate moving light source that allows you to scan film and transparencies up to 8.5” x 10”. Included exclusive Snap Trans™ film holders accommodate 35mm slides, 35mm filmstrips, 4” x 5” film, and medium format film up to 6 x 17-cm panoramic. The 4” x 5” and medium format film holders are specially designed with spring-actuated tension grips that hold the film perfectly flat, ensuring consistent scan results and yielding sharper image quality.

Optional bundled with LaserSoft Imaging’s SilverFast Ai Studio 8

Optional bundled with LaserSoft Imaging’s SilverFast Ai Studio 8SilverFast Ai Studio, which is regarded as the best scanner software in the world, includes the full functionality. The patented and award-winning SilverFast Multi-Exposure® increases the scanner’s dynamic range, removes natural image noise, and provides more details. The included Auto IT8Calibration ensures correct colors with just one mouse click.

ScanWizardTM Pro scanning software ( PC Only )
This is an advanced scanner controller program that provides many powerful, professional-level features for scanning. ScanWizard Pro features two-color spaces, allowing users to work in the Native CMYK / RGB mode, as well as in the intuitive LCH (Lightness, Chroma, Hue) mode.

Auto Dynamic Range
The system automatically determines the lightest density or tone (Dmin) and darkest tone (Dmax) of the original; then it captures the image color data with the full input tonal range of the scanner. This setting optimizes color balance and the contrast of the output image and is most useful for scanning negative films.

State-of-the-art ColoRescue function
With ColoRescue, the ArtixScan F2 restores faded colors in photos and film, bringing hues back to their original luster and brilliance for more vibrant images. ColoRescue’s one-click, automatic color recovery process is simple and easy to use.
