Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Speed


It scans stuff, I have only tried slide yet as that is the only format I use. Dinky little box of tricks, quiet and seems to produce very good images with a few problems (read below)

Resolution - fantastic detail, you have to zoom in past the film grain to even start to see pixelation. Speed - does a picture in one minute at highest res, although the transfer rate will probably be much better with USB2 or Firewire on newer scanners.

After a right run around trying to find leads and SCSI 2 cards (which are all becoming abselete) I finally got it up and running. Biggest problem is - It scans too dark. Every picture is the bloody same, you have to enter Photoshop and raise the curves...

Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Speed


After reading the reviews here,and finding an incredibly good deal on this factory refurbished scanner with 6 months of warranty, i decided to go ahead. It is $100 anyways. Surprisingly, I am quite content with the performance i am getting from it. I...

1. Very sharp. I used to use sprintscan 4000 at school and always had sharpness problems. This scanner is sharp, very very sharp. I rarely use unsharpmask, which i used to use when using sprint scan 4000. 2. Fast, quite. Takes less than a minute, to...

1. Color accuracy. Very very bad especially with very saturated films like velvia. The output could be green cast, or yellow cast, or red cast, with every picture. You have to spent some time on PS to fix this. 2. Software. Bad bad bad. Get vuescan for...

After reading reviews of the ScanSpeed on this and other forums it is obvious that the default scans leave something to be desired in terms of colour accuracy. Here are some tips to help in getting very satifactory results from this excellent piece of...

Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Speed


It gives very good scans in colour and resolution first time using Vuescan that I prefer to the Minolta soft. Very good value for money compared with Nikon Scanners !

fast enough ; good resolution for the price

no usb interface ; included software is not great

Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Speed


The software of Minolta is very bad. I hope somethimes they wil make an update.With the test version off Vuescan the results are a lot better.

It scans very fast ; Good resolution ; Clean colors

The software, but that is the problem for a lot of photoscanners

Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Speed


Software is not very capable. Other choice is Vuescan especially for negatives. But with little twiddling and manipulation you get fine results for little money.

Good resolution ; Very good Dmax ; Excellent price

Software. Scanning with default or automated values does not give satisfactory results

Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Speed


A solid, capable scanner for the price.

Relatively inexpensive for high dpi. The software does an acceptable job ensuring quality scans. Fairly quick.

No major weaknesses. You have to spend significantly more to get better results.

Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Speed


Good value for money, but if you want to do pre-scanning WYSIWYG color correction, I guess you should buy a Silverfast supported scanner (with Silverfast, obviously), for more money.

Sharpness and level of detail, lack of noise (especially when using VueScan, which makes one-pass multiscanning possible with this scanner), speed, 36-bit color depth (largely compensates for the driver's bad color correction capabilities)

Color correction and driver software. The Mac version of the software comes with a ColorSync profile, though, which gives reasonable results (slides only), but it clips some of the highlights and the shadows - epecially in the blue and green channel....

Konica Minolta Dimage Scan Speed


For £600 in the UK the best spec scanner around at this price level.

Good value scanner that has a high specification ; Used with care and Photoshop can deliver excellent scans from transparencies. Low noise in shadow areas and high retention of detail, further improved by un-sharp masking

Greens are undersaturated, but easy to correct in photoshop
