In this way the full range of the original is extracted from the scan.

The adaptive light source used in the Imacon adjusts the illumination level transmitted through the film to compensate for atypical image densities possibly caused by underexposure of a transparency or low-key subject, avoiding the potential for noise in the shadows of a scan. The Imacon Flextight has been described by some as a drum or ‘virtual drum’ scanner, in that the film is bent over a curved surface to result in scans with perfect edge to edge focus.

Nearly everyone scamner is better served by inkjet printing on archival materials using the excellent, high fidelity tools available today. Colorflex also contains a full set of accessible manual image adjustment tools, including a new feature which enhances shadow detail more effectively than either adjusting gamma or shaping the characteristic curve.
