Expert review by: Simon Eccles (digitalartsonline.co.uk)

Scanjet 8300

 

The latest flatbed scanner from HP is available in two versions - the standard Scanjet 8300 and the 8300gp, which is supplied with a GretagMacbeth monitor calibrator.

Excellent quality even from 35mm film. Ships with SilverFast software and IT8 targets. 8300gp version includes monitor calibrator.

Rather large footprint considering the scanning area. Software dust removal is poor. 120/220 film holder only takes single frames.

HP's scanners have historically been unimpressive for serious photographic work - but the 8300 is an improvement, making it the first Scanjet we'd recommend for a creative studio

HP Scanjet 8300 Professional Image Scanner

 

The quality is acceptable when scanning documents and photos. I tried film and the scanner would not work. No help, except HP said it was out of warranty and suggested that I buy a new scanner. I'm sure this scanner would not scan film from the beginning.
