Scanner recommendations sought

  Kate B 13:22 02 Oct 2005

Anyone got any recommendations for a not horribly expensive A3 scanner, please?

Unless anyone else knows better, there only seems to be a cheap Mustek A3 ScanExpress model (I used to have a ScanExpress - rebadged model from Visioneer or similar) before you get into the Epson four-figure sum alternatives:

As Stuartli says- You arer a entering into the pro market and four figure prices for an A3
Won't scanning in 2 halves and joining up do as well
most photo editors will do it- even the freebies

Well there is this one: click here

but the rest seem to be in the 4 figure number.

Just seen this one, again from Mustek. Not 4 figure numbers though. But only available from one supplier?

Your first link is to the same Mustek scanner as my original one - I did point out that it appeared to be the only cheapo...:-)

I've spotted that Mustek, too. Thanks, guys, I'll investigate that one further.

The same Mustek at Amazon (cheapest at £75 with free P+P) - see the good user reviews lower down click here.

At Ebuyer (also recd good reviews) click here.

List of 39 A3 scanners click here, & that Mustek is the only 'suitable' one! G

I am very pleased with my Canon Lide 80 !

Before you part with a wad of cash, just one question, Are you going to do a LOT of A3 scans? If the answer is not a lot, then consider using a good quality digital camera on a stand.
