It is six years since I purchased my Canon Canoscan N124U scanner and I wonder as to what improvements there have been with scanners since that date. It has been sufficient for my needs to date but I could believe that it is not upto scratch by todays standards with regard to scanning photographs. Any suggestions as to recommended specifications?
That a copy via digital camera route should be INFERIOR to a dedicated scanner I would have thought- disregarding the Megapixel con. I guess a scanner can degrade over time - lamp brightness/colour temperature or even the way the software is set up- Document type/DPI/size Things that can go to'default' setting and get overlooked. Do a test - take a digi cam copy then a scanner one- checking the software is set up correctly for the job. If the scanned image is still inferior - then go for it.
I have gone down the route of photographing photos with a digital camera and then scanning the same photo - both into photoshop CS2.The product from the digital camera is streets ahead, which is why I wondered as to whether more modern scanners would give better reproduction than my existing Canon Canoscan
