    Scanner Comparison 2019 [Epson Flatbed | Eversmart Flatbed | Drum Scanners]

    I am going to go through a scanner comparison exercise to provide an updated resource on the capabilities of various scanners as of 2019. I will use this thread to document the results and encourage others to chime in and help guide the process but please refrain from taking things off-topic. I am also keeping my fingers are crossed that we will remain kind to one another.

    Scanners and computer systems that I will be using:
    • Epson V700 | Windows 7 64bit | Vuescan & Silverfast SE
    • Creo/Scitex Eversmart Pro | Mac OS9 | G5 Mirror | Eversmart Scan
    • Creo/Scitex Eversmart Supreme | Mac OS10.6.8 | G5 Mirror | OxygenScan 2.6.4
    • Scanmate 5000 | Windows 7 64bit | Color Quartet 5
    • Scanmate 11000 | Windows 7 64bit | Color Quartet 5
    • Heidelberg Tango | Mac OS10.2.8 | G5 Mirror | Newcolor 2000

    The scanning tests will include scans for the following:
    • Wolf Faust IT8 Color Target
    • USAF 1951 Resolution Target
    • Black and White Negatives [8x10 | 4x5 | 6x7 MF | 35MM]
    • Color Negatives [4x5 | 6x7 MF | 35MM]
    • Color Slides [8x10 | 4x5 | 6x7 MF | 35MM]

    Since each scanner/software setup is different my approach will be to follow these requirements in order:
    • 5000 DPI Resolution [Espon V700 will be scanned at 6400 DPI and down-sampled to 5000 DPI in Photoshop
    • RAW Scans [Note: RAW is not possible for Eversmart Pro and Tango but I will turn off all software settings to get as close to RAW as possible
    • Positive conversions for negatives using ColorPerfect Plugin only and no additional Photoshop edits
    • Photos will be posted in sRGB using convert to profile method in Photoshop

    A little bit information on the USAF Resolution Target that I am using:
    See this link for a little history about the USAF 1951 resolution target and how it can be used to test for resolution. The scans that I'll post will be able to give a very good estimate of actual resolution using the reference table below:
