But one day when I become rich and famous I aspire to invest into an Imacon scanner. Grain aliasing is significantly reduced with T-Max Flextight holders, though, because they work best with support on all four sides of the film, are much more format-specific than Nikon holders are. FinallyFlextights are not efficient scanners of mounted slides, and with an autofocus scanner, mounted 35mm slides are flat enough that the Flextight is not going to return a massive increase in flatness more expensive Flextights can deliver far higher resolution, up to dpi flexright — but for the cost of a higher-end Flextight, you could have a lot of actual drum scans done of your favorite work….

You may link to content on this site but you may not reproduce any of it in whole flextiggt part without written consent from its owner. A Flextight is a great scanner for medium-format imadon, but it is not the most versatile or in its most affordable forms, the most supported dedicated film scanner.

The fluorescent tube s in a Flextight, provided that you can live with less color correction, cost a couple of bucks apiece and are easily installed by the user. I am fairly convinced at this point that Imacon, Nikon, and Polaroid designed their negative holders to be the weak link in what is otherwise bulletproof hardware. When it use, it never reaches that.

Nice write-up of the scanner, from way back when. Probably not of any pictorial consequence.

Talking about shame, have a look at another comparison I made: There is no comparison between scans from it and from my V The fierce style in which most Imacon owners defend their choice really makes me think. The ones available in Ebay are all without power supply, so they are just expensive pile of scrap metal.

This old Flextight scanner are often really cheap to buy, compared to their quality and their original price nearly especially. So, beyond a certain threshold with any particular film, the scanner resolution captures no additional details.
