    Re: Creo iQsmart3 and Supreme II scan speed

    I have an IQsmart 2 it deivers 4300 ppi and is as slow as molasses in winter - ie it takes forever. But the result is outstanding. I believe the IQsmart 3 delivers about 5500 ppi.

    If I run at 2400 ppi times aren't too bad but it certainly isn't even close to being fast. If you have thousands of large plates you'll be scanning for a few years. The good news is that if they're 8 x 10 plates you can mount two plates and scan overnight so I guess you might get 4 to 6 plates scanned a day if you run 24 hours a day. The machines were built to scan all day every day so if it's in good condition I don't think you'd wear it out. Epson - Ha! Buy a few of them. it isn't what they were built for.

    I think some form of scanning with a good digital camera will be the only way to do the job in a practical timeframe.

    Oh No! You can not say it here
    SergeyT (Серёжа), look my test. The same frame scanned at 2400 dpi on a brand new Epson 12000 xl and Nikon CoolScan 9000. The original scanned from 6x9 glass photo plate. Scanned with VueScan and saved in DNG format. The Epson 12000 has 4 mirrors through which the image passes, Nikon CoolScans has only one. Heidelberg said - each mirror between film and lens/sensor reduced the quality of the scanned image. Only Heidelberg have an A3 flatbed scanner without a mirror.

    Probably you have some problem in the side by side, the Epson 12k delivers 2150dpi effective, and 3900 the Nikon 9000. Not doubt that the Nikon CoolScan 9000 has a way better resolution, but at 2400dpi nominal differences in the samples should not be that large by far.

    For the moment the white triangles in the Epson 12k sample are fully saturated, which points to poor procedures in selecting the scanned range in the histogram.

    Scan at 1800 dpi or 2000 dpi has a significant result.

    Scan at highest resolution in both cases, sharpen to the best point each and reduce both to 2400, then compare, this is what tells the truth.

    A machine may scan internally at higher dpi and then sharpening and reducing, for a fair comparison to show the machine potential you should do the right test.

    No doubt that N 9000 is way better than E 12000, one is for 6cm and the other is for A3, but if wanting to compare do a fair comparison.
