Thread: Scanmate f8+ anyone?

    Scanmate f8+ anyone?

    Hello from Germany,

    I am able to get a new F8+ and was wondering if anyone has some infos about the quality?

    I used to run drum scanners (Tango & Primescan) and a Creo Eversmart. I would like to start my business again with the f8+ does it at least out-peform the Imacon Flextight scanners?

    Best wishes,

    As nobody replied.

    I got the scanner and I can highly recommend it over a Hasselblad or any other flatbed I have used. Wet-mounting is also possible and works great. Michael from ABC-Scan in Denmark is a highly skilled person and really helpful.

    I got the same scanner yesterday but after the first trial scan the plate stuck to the right with a flashing red error light. The first time, following the manual I reset the scanning plate into position and it did the trick but as soon as i started the next scan it did the same thing and this time nothing I can do to fix it. Any help? Do you have the contact of this person in Denmark? I am incredibly sad as I got it for next to nothing.
