Drum Scanner-Up to 400 DPI. Drum scans are wet-mounted to enable maximum reproduction size,this avoids Newton rings, and helps to hide scratches and dust during the scan.

Provides 4000 DPI resolution, for up to the first 5.2″ wide of the drum. And 2000 DPI provided over the entire drum. Drum scanners allow the highest resolution scans of medium and large format film up to 4000 DPI. However,for 4×5 film, 2000 DPI is more than enough resolution  for a large format print .
