    Comments about Hasselblad Flextight X5 Scanner:

    In terms of scan quality I can compare this scanner with those from the Heidelberg Linotype-Hell times, such the "father" Chromagraph, only this one is much faster, much practical and user friendly. As a graphic designer, a gotta know a great deal about image production, processing and printing, so I used many many film scanners and drum scanners till today. Everything about this scanner is amazing. Except one thing (beyond its spicy price): I don't understand why my good-old ArtixScan 120tf can scan medium film at 4000ppi 1:1 in 48bit, and the mighty Flextight X5 can't do more than 3200ppi 1:1 !!! Don't forget that the Microtek has only 4.2 hardware D-max. Still, with the latest ver. of SilverFast Ai Studio and other software I can compensate enough to achieve ALMOST (but not quite) the same results on medium film, but with a LOT much more time spent! So, if you want a formula one car, then go for it. But you better be Michael Schumacher to worth the investment :) Cheers!

      Last representative system is Flextight scanner Hasselblad Flextight X5 as a successor to a very successful model Flextight 848 and Flextight 949th Flextight 848, for example, selected for their projects, the most global paper photographic agency Magnum Photos. Flextight X5 is its parameters 8.000dpi, 4.9D with active cooling, 300MB/minutu, fully 16-bit processing and superior system for batch processing clearly present the best product on the market.

        Comments about Hasselblad Flextight X5 Scanner:

        I'm still putting this scanner through it's paces, but what the 4" x 5" negatives I have done yielded great results. I was able to print a 24" x 32" image from the scan with sharp details in both the light and dark areas of the picture. I had a little bit of a problem setting up the scanner with Mac OS 10.5.2, but tech support was fast and efficient. With this scanner, film lives another day in this increasingly all digital world.
