Hot.com.au > Scanners > Flatbed Scanners
Flatbed (or Desktop) scanners for home or office use. A flatbed scanner allows you to place the document on a glass window for scanning. Flatbed scanners are multipurpose machines that can be used to scan photos and images, documents, some can also scan slides and negatives. They can suit a variety of applications including design, photo restoration, X-ray (Teleradiology, CT) scanning, film and technical graphics.
Flatbed scanners are recommended for photos, books etc. A few models can also handle film but you'd want the top of the line to compete with dedicated film scanners.. There are two main types of sensors CIS & CCD. There are two lighting methods LED & Cold cathode now LEDs are starting to take over. The Epson V800 and Microtek A3 9800XL are CCD (Charged Coupled Device) & Cold Cathode the Microtek A3 XT6060 and Canon CS9000F-II uses very bright LEDs (which also removes warm up time). It's also twice as fast on A4 and 50% more film DPI than most other film/flatbed scanners.
Our most popular scanner for Photos is the EPSON V800..
