PowerLook 2100XL is a
one-size-fits-all scanner for graphics professionals who require
high resolution and fast color scanning of any image in a
small-footprint package. When UMAX says one size fits all, UMAX
means it! You can scan illustrations, newspapers, magazines,
transparencies, color photos, and even x-rays, textiles, and
negatives! This professional 800 x 1600 dpi scanner consumes minimal
space on the desktop, yet allows tabloid-sized scanning. The
PowerLook 2100XL features UMAX' new proprietary Mirror Moving
Technology which utilizes mirrors to project images directly to the
stationary CCD. UMAX' Mirror Moving Technology not only minimizes
signal noise to produce higher quality, more consistent scans; it
also reduces the scanner's scanning time and overall power
consumption. The scanning area measures a full 12" by 17", despite
the small footprint of just over 18" by 24" to fit on any desktop.
The scan area can accommodate up to thirty-two 35mm slides when used
with the transparency adapter. High 3.4Dmax captures fine details of
shadow areas - especially important when scanning transparencies.
With auto-detect slide holders, the PowerLook 2100XL can crop and
scan slides automatically for super fast scans. In addition, batch
scanning increases productivity by scanning more than one image in a
Rated 9 out of 10!
I purchased the scanner in 2006. I still have
original paperwork, software and shipping box. You can still
purchase this new for $1,229 - but why do that when you can pick
this one up for just $350. Excellent condition, everything
works. If you don't have one already, I will include the (required)
SCSI interface card for your PC for just $25 more.
I also have the transparency adapter for this unit. It does have
some issues with the scanning results. I'm selling that as is for
repair or parts for $50 - with that price I'll also include the
slide and film holders for the transparency adapterunit. New it's
about $400. This is an add-on to the scanner and in no way effects
the scan results when not using the transparency adapter. Also have
the original shipping box for this one too.
