WHY WE LOVE IT

The camera: The ScanPro 3000 microfilm scanner features a 26 megapixel camera¹, nearly twice the optical resolution of any microfilm scanner, which provides customers with exceptional image quality never before seen in the micrographics industry. The optical resolution is over 500 dpi on a letter page and saved files are both archival-quality and small in size.

 

Pixel shifting: ¹The ScanPro 3000 or i9300 high performance, pixel-shifting camera produces the clearest image in the microfilm industry. Pixel-shifting is a state-of-the-art technology being used by some of the best known and respected manufacturers in the camera industry (Canon, Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic, Leica, Zeiss, Pentax, Lumix and many others). Although e-ImageData is not the first manufacturer to use pixel-shifting, they are the first and the only manufacturer in the micrographics industry to use this advanced technology to capture higher megapixel images. Using pixel shifting, e-ImageData starts with its largest image sensor in the industry (10.5mm x 7.328mm, 3.5µm2 pixel, 6.6 megapixel sensor), to capture and integrate 4 unique optical images into a single 26 megapixel camera image, the clearest image in the industry.

OCR: Take your research to the next level with the ScanPro 3000’s PowerScan Productivity Suite (PPS) Optical Character Recognition software. The PowerScan Productivity Suite will open up a whole new world of functionality for your organization. Start referencing words in your film with sources like Wikipedia or a thesaurus, convert microfilm images to multi-page PDF’s, copy and paste from microfilm images to any document, and much more. If you don’t want to outsource your microfilm scanning to someone else, there’s ScanPro 3000.

If you’ve purchased a new ScanPro and ordering a new computer, here are the ScanPro PC & Monitor Specifications. If your Microfilm Smells like Vinegar or has a Funny Scent, act immediately or risk losing your collection.

Frequently Asked Questions

THAT WE FREQUENTLY ANSWER

Why does my microfilm smell like vinegar?

Sometimes referred to as “measles in film” because of its characteristic red spots, it spreads throughout the film stored and can degrade the film to the point of no longer being useable.
