LaserSoft Imaging LA1211 overview

  • 1Description

The SilverFast Resolution Target from LaserSoft Imaging is a simple software to determine your scanner's maximum usable resolution. As a second important application, the Target helps you find the optimum sharpness settings for a chosen resolution. You can also find the best compromise between high resolution and sharpness for your scanner. It also determines which particular parts of your flatbed scanner are sharply or blurrily scanned. Based on the USAF-1951 standard, LaserSoft Imaging developed the SilverFast Resolution Target to make the actual usable resolution of a scanner measurable. This is a transparent scan original, suitable for either flatbed or film scanners* with a transparency adapter.

The structure and elements of the Resolution Target are defined as per American military standards. On the Target there are smaller elements, each consisting of black bars of precisely defined width and spacing. These individual elements are numbered and organized into groups on the Resolution Target. The usable resolution of the scanner is defined by the smallest elements in the Resolution Target where there is a barely discernible gap between two black bars. The Resolution Target can also detect sharpness at various resolutions. You can now find the optimum resolution for scanning and differentiate the sharpness at different points in the scanned area of a flatbed scanner.

Note: *The SilverFast Resolution Target (USAF 1951) can be used with any film and flatbed scanner (Transparency Adaptor required) and with any SilverFast scanner software version.

Resolution Target in combination with SilverFast software is a simple way to determine the maximum resolution of your scanner. This will help you scan with the best possible crispness and sharpness.

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.
