LaserSoft Imaging LA1211 overview

  • 1Description

Get the best possible crispness and sharpness out of your scanner with help from the SilverFast Resolution Target from LaserSoft Imaging. Designed for use in combination with SilverFast scanning software (available separately), this USAF-1951 transparent test target fits into 35mm slide holders and enables you to easily determine your scanner's maximum usable resolution. As a second important application, the SilverFast target helps you find the optimum sharpness settings for a chosen resolution. You can also find the best compromise between high resolution and sharpness, as well as determine which parts of your scanner are particularly sharp or blurry. The SilverFast resolution target can be used with any film or flatbed scanner (separately available transparency adapter required) and with any SilverFast scanner software version.

The structure and elements of the SilverFast resolution target are based on the USAF-1951 standard. The target's design provides a stepped and numbered assortment of small elements, each consisting of black bars of precisely defined width and spacing. To determine the maximum usable resolution of your scanner, do a transmissive raw scan of the target. On the scanned image, look for the smallest element in which you can differentiate between two adjacent bars with your eyes.

LaserSoft Imaging LA1211 reviews

SilverFast Resolution Target is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Low Cost Resolution Target - but I purchased this product to evaluate my Epson R2400 scanner resolution. Before I scanned the Resolution Target I examined it under a microscope to provide a reference for the practical resolution range this target can produce. The microscope images show that the target has a significant amount of grain and the smallest resolving area of the target is under Grooup 6 with lots of grain. You can successfully evaluate a scanner with at best 5000 dpi. Group 7 is completely useless. So, if you are attempting to evaluate a scanner that is capable of 8000 dpi then this product is useless. For my Epson scanner the target served its intended purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from USAF-1951 B&H had the best price for this target. Allows you to fine tune the focus on a flatbed scanner by using shims to adjust the distance to the lens. Lets you test the accuracy of your auto focus. Lets you determine the actual resolution of your scanner and the smallest scanning resolution that will give you the best actual resolution. Flatbed scanners fudge the resolution numbers big time. My Epson V500 with a claimed hardware resolution of 6400 x 9600 has an actual resolution of 1290 x 1600 which is still pretty good for a flatbed.
