I then scanned a selection and the result was the capture of all of the image information quite accurately and successfully with the t, attesting to the effectiveness of its sensor range. The result is a file that makes a very pleasant 12×18″ art print.

Microtek ArtixScan t Scanner | eBay

In the past I had limited success scanning this film, but the ArtixScan did a superior job capturing the full range of tone and detail. While comparing the two sets of images I found that there was little gained in color correction advantage using Photoshop over what I was able kicrotek do with the ScanWizard Pro TX color correction tools, at least affecting the primary dimensions of image quality.

Overall it does a pretty good job most of the time but if you are scanning underexposed slides and opening dark areas in a photo editing program trouble begins, for two things: Visit our Competitions Forum, where you’ll find our monthly competition and other external competitions to enter.

I haven’t seen any microtfk of focus issues from curved film with this scanner which people report with other brands. Apart from that I find the slide carrier flimsy. A gentle push makes it engage and drive into place.

The high optical resolution of dpi 35mm scanning the ArtixScan provides, and an interpolated boost to dpi, makes real the kicrotek grandiose print microhek any photographer would want to reproduce from a 35mm image. I believe this is mostly due to the fact there is a better match between what is perceived in the ScanWizard Pro TX preview and how the image appeared once scanned and opened in Photoshop’s workspace.


In fact there are many scanners which have good physical performance, but few that have equally good software. Using ScanWizard ProTX, the first thing to appear when you start to scan is an overview that makes a small preview of the contents of the film carrier.

A less pronounced, but still valuable advantage of dpi scanning applies to slides, and even if I’m only going to make a letter-size print, the dpi images produce generally smoother print tones. It’s easy to draw crop marks around part of an image so you don’t have to scan the whole image and be more selective. Christmas Is Arriving Fast squint to see the bike in the window. The first thing is connecting. This required applying a fair amount of work tweaking the color in Photoshop after scanning.

TerryMcK and 59 others liked this. The sensible thing to do, until you become familiar with the controls, is to use the auto settings. The standout feature of the ArtixScan t is its much higher optical resolution. From here you have access to loads of editing features using the larger pre scan images as reference.

Very often the results seem excessively grainy, a problem many other photographers have related in Internet forums in discussions of scanning. I’m leaning towards the Cannon because of the dust removal feature but, is it truly necessary or can you remove the dust with compressed air etc.


Both are capable programs to ensure you get the best scan from your films. The scanner comes with two film carriers, one for four mounted slides and the other for a strip of six uncut frames. Your name or email address: If you’re a Mac G3 or G4 users you’ll need to buy a suitable card.

I have no experience with Microtek but I am on my second sample of FSUS, my first was extremely problematic out of the box, Canon showed good support and replaced it in the end. Can’t access your account?

The microtek has interpolated scanning to dpi but the cannon has the FARE dust removal. All this can be achieved later using Photoshop, but it helps to start with a good scanned file. The Microtek takes up much more space and you can’t lay anything on top.
