HP Scanjet G4010 Photo Scanner (3.5 mice)

 

The HP Scanjet G4010 Photo Scanner is a very capable desktop scanner with an impressive list of features, such as built-in transparency scanning for slides and film and six-color scans of reflective media.

Built-in transparency unit for scanning film and slides ; six-color scanning for hard-to-scan objects

Sluggish scanning speeds ; slide scans lack detail ; clunky scanning software

The G4010 is the first scanner I know of that generates scans from more than three colors. Most scanners have one lamp to illuminate an image or object, and a three-color RGB (red, green, and blue) sensor. The G4010 also sports an RGB sensor, but if...

HP ScanJet G4010

 

Rarely do I look at a standalone scanner, but should you need to scan other than documents then a specialised standalone scanner comes to the fore especially for negatives and slides.

The comes with some excellent software that makes the scanning from whatever format just a matter of a few clicks, also included is PhotoSmart Premium that gives you control over the images once scanned, while the two work together they can be used...

For probably the best quality and authenticity of photo reproduction, the ScanJet G4010's 6-colour system is going to be hard to beat. It's a shame that it's let down by an unfriendly negative holder and overly complex operating software.

Good Scanner

 

Despite the cons, it does a great job scanning.

Scans very clear and scales up or down with ease. Merges multiple scans to one PDF quickly.

The slide holder is part of the lid. If you scan normal copier paper, the slide holder will bleed thru. Sometimes you have to place another sheet behind the paper you want to scan. The slide holder shows up on the "detected" scan area. You always have...
