Umax PowerLook 2100XL Flatbed Scanner
At the present time multiple image holders are only available from Umax in 35mm size. The and 4x5 size film holders supplied are single units.
However, from working successfully with 35mm mounted in Wess Plastic glassless mounts with the scanner, I would assume if they have glassless mounts for sizes they would function equally well for batch scanning. I selected UMAX Scanner PowerLook wide variety of film images, and a few prints to scan with the Umax PowerLookand used both software packages provided. Also a sharp 35mm Kodachrome appropriately chosen to test resolution and evaluate the dynamic range ability of this scanner to handle the densities of chrome films.
I also chose a number of film images scanned before and found it difficult to obtain good results with UMAX Scanner PowerLook scanners, and particularly concentrated on a number of 6x4.
One fall I was fortunate UMAX Scanner PowerLook be in the Colorado Rockies when the Aspen were in color. Working with just one image at a time, the PowerLook is not as fast as some 35mm scanners, but using its ability to batch scan makes up for that and then some. Fortunately I have a number of scanner film holders and was able to put at least three or four size images on the scan bed at a time. For anyone who is using the scanner for archiving, combining this batch ability and selecting output in bit mode, is both advantageous in securing a file with all of the scan data collected by the Umax in it in an archived file, which can then be color corrected for different applications later.
UMAX Scanner PowerLook though I deliberately chose mostly challenging images from a scanning perspective, I obtained superior image UMAX Scanner PowerLook in just about every instance. The exception I found was with some black and white silver-based film scans.
Although I have no information about the details of the light source and optical path employed in UMAX Scanner PowerLook PowerLookI have to assume that it is less diffuse than a typical flat-bed with a TPU light source replacing the scanner lid, or a 35mm scanner which uses a fluorescent tube light source. The apparent more collimated light of UMAX Scanner PowerLook Umax would result in greater effective densities read in silver film negative images.
I could never obtain a decent silver print of this portrait of my favorite model shot on 8x10 film, because of the fine detail and subtle tonality of the white shawl.
UMAX PowerLook III - flatbed scanner Series
The Umax PowerLook provided the opportunity to scan that big negative and adjust the curve so all of the values reproduce with stunning reality. In all other dimension applied to all color media, the Umax PowerLook provided distinctly superior image quality to any flat-bed scanner I've worked with, and a close match or better than UMAX Scanner PowerLook professional larger format film scanners. In other words the visual qualities of the images scanned in sharpness, and detail is everything and sometimes more than what you would expect based on the UMAX Scanner PowerLook appearance of the film image.
The range of tones captured by the scanner provides fine separation of values, and color saturation and the delineation of tints and hues is a precise representation of the original image.
After 40 or so scans, all of which were improvements over previous scans of many of the film images, working with the scanner on a Mac and a Windows PC, I was quite convinced the Umax PowerLook is indeed a thoroughly professional all-in-one scanner. The clincher was a completely successful scan of a 6x4. This piece UMAX Scanner PowerLook film was one of the few I was successful reticulating, as modern color films are quite resistant to that affect.
However, the reticulation pattern is quite fine, and it took the Umax's dpi resolution to record it clearly. This photograph of a dancer taken in UMAX Scanner PowerLook daylight studio with a combination of ambient and electronic flash lighting at a slow shutter speed, captured many subtle tonal variations.
These slight variations in tone distinctions were accurately preserved scanning the Ektachrome 6x4. Umax supplies two software drivers with the PowerLookthe MagicScan 4.
That is UMAX Scanner PowerLook why the PowerColor 4. Both are available for the Macintosh and Windows. This does not mean that it does not function well for RGB output, but that it is difficult to use it well, because the operation paradigm is quite alien to what a user of Photoshop would find familiar.
So, buy now or forever hold your peace UMAX Scanner PowerLook your inferior A3 scans made on other models! However it is great and produces excellent copies. I own a scrabooking and hand made card business and needed a scanner that could copy at least 12x12 pages.
