Technical Characteristics

The following table lists the basic technical characteristics of the new scanner:

The scanner uses a color six-line CCD array that ensures an optical resolution of 3200dpi. The scanner’s mechanical resolution is 6400dpi thanks to the sub-scanning technology called Micro Step Drive. Since the F-3200 is first of all intended for scanning transparent originals, the maximum optical density is up to this purpose – 3.8Dmax. The device may connect to the computer via USB 2.0 or FireWire. Moreover, there’s a second USB connector on the scanner for connecting to a printer. This is a brief description, but I will dwell on some interesting points in the Functionality section.

Accessories


The colors of the box are EPSON’s corporate colors

You are going to find the following in the box:

  • EPSON F-3200 Film Scanner
  • 35mm film holder (2 stripes, 6 frames each)
  • 35mm slides holder (8 frames)
  • 120/220 film holder
  • 2x5” film holder
  • 10x15cm photographs holder
  • One 16MB CompactFlash card for updating the firmware
  • USB cable
  • External power adapter
  • Power cord
  • CD with drivers and EPSON Scan software
  • CD with Adobe Photoshop Elements 2
  • The scanning program SilverFast Ai 6 with two calibration targets IT8.7
  • A gadget for cleaning the scanner’s optics
  • A multi-lingual Quick Start Guide
  • Operation Guide

As you can see, this is a quite exhaustive kit. The only thing that’s probably missing is a FireWire cable. By the way, the FireWire interface of the F-3200 is intended for connection to Macs, the USB one being preferable for the PC (when working with the scanner I noticed that I could access its card-reader from the computer only via USB connection). But I’m running somewhat ahead. The functionality of this scanner model is described in the next section.
