The FineScan 2750 is the latest addition to Fujifilm’s range of professional desktop scanners. Costing £6,500 plus VAT, the expense buys you an optical scanning resolution of up to 2,743dpi and a maximum magnification of 2,500 per cent – allowing a 35mm transparency to be enlarged to A1.
The scanner is based around an oversize A3 platen. All of the platen can be used for high-quality scanning, claims Fujifilm, due to the ability of the optics to move in both X and Y planes. The 10,500 pixel CCD has two lenses. The first scans the entire platen at 762dpi, which allows fast scanning of large images and previews. The second scans the platen in 100mm strips at 2743dpi for full resolution output.
The scanner ships with Fujifilm’s ColourKit 2750 software. It includes built-in ICC profile support; image editing in RGB, CMYK and LCH; previews of output device-specific colour gamuts and batch scanning capabilities.
