Freedom of choice

The freedom not to have to choose between digital or film, for instance. The freedom to use whatever capture medium works best for a particular shoot or situation. And whether you choose to shoot film because the elements are against you or for creative reasons, with the new generation of Hasselblad scanners you know that you’ll be able to get your images safely into the digital world – wherever they began – with every subtle detail embedded in your negatives and slides accurately reproduced.

The Unique 3F Workflow

When selecting the 3F file format in automatic scan mode, images are scanned at a specified resolution of 16 bits per color. In this way the full color range of the original is extracted from the scan. The 3F file is never altered but acts as a sort of “preview scan” when you open it later, enabling you to re-do all operations or change any parameter you wish. Consider it like re-scanning, but without the film original present.

Furthermore – every time you save a file from the 3F format, your action history is embedded in the 3F file, which enables you to repeat these actions whenever you like. The 3F workflow also allows you to produce final TIFF images, cropped and corrected, with a single click of a button.

Productivity

Naturally, the extraordinary scanning speed of the Flextight X5 plays a key part in increasing your productivity. The benefits don’t stop there, however. Various feeding devices, for example, can be attached; the Batch Feeder for mixed originals and the Slide Feeder for scanning of mounted slides. Using these devices together with the 3F workflow produces a throughput that has to be seen to be believed.

Sharpness and resolution

Even though you can find scanners with larger sensors you will not find better clarity and detail rendition when scanning photographic film. That is due to the electronic handling of the sensor, the mechanical precision as well as the quality of filters and the resolving power of the Rodenstock lens. The Flextight scanners are not only a piece of art seen from the outside the entire machinery is saturated with excellent solutions.

Keeping it cool

Heat reduction solutions are another example of features not found on lower range scanners. By removing the power supply outside the scanner and using a cold cathode light tube, which produces very little infrared waves, Hasselblad scanners eliminate two common sources of heat-related noise. Our X5 scanner even has active sensor cooling, which means that an electronic cooling device is placed directly on the CCD, which increases signal to noise ratio by 1 to 2 bits.
