Ideal for SOHO or home users who are more interested in obtaining attractive images than speedy scans.

The Agfa SnapScan E50 is ideal for SOHO and home users who are more interested in obtaining attractive images than speedy scans and who want to work with both reflective and transparent items.

Agfa SnapScan e50

 

The Agfa SnapScan e50 scanner is all about image -- both inside and out: Its engine is designed to produce high-resolution scans (1,200-by-2,400), and its exterior can be customised by applying different colours of plastic trim.

Product Specifications

Design of SnapScan e50 is so sleek that you'd never guess it has a built-in scanning module for 35 mm slides and films (negative / positive), on top of the A4 scanbed for reflectives. It leads the field in quality and scanning speed: 1200 x 2400 ppi true optical resolution, 42-bit color sampling and USB connection for rapid transfer speeds and hot-swapping between computers. It's also a good looker: one-touch scanning buttons are neatly housed under a hinged cover that matches the color of the scanbed handle. Agfa even supplies three sets of alternative covers and handles in tasty translucent colors (blue, graphite and orange), to harmonize with your other equipment!
