Product Specifications

The EPSON Perfection 3200 brings high-quality film scanning with the flexibility of a flatbed scanner. Offering an optical resolution of 3200x6400 dpi, it also features a built-in 4"x9" Transparency Unit and a custom-developed ASIC for high-speed film scans. The 4"x9" Transparency Unit makes the Perfection 3200 ideal for medium and large format film, and it can also scan up to twelve 35mm originals at a time, making it the ideal solution for both photography enthusiasts and professionals. At home or in businesses it is a flexible high-quality scanner for general-purpose use. A high optical density and 48-bit color recognition means that excellent reproduction quality is guaranteed, and the subtlest variations are recognized. Boasting both USB 2.0 Hi-Speed and IEEE1394 (FireWire) interfaces the Perfection 3200 Photo is compatible with both PCs and Apple Macintosh computers. Combined with the custom ASIC chip for transparency scanning, the Perfection 3200 Photo is approximately three times the speed of its predecessor, the Perfection 2450 Photo. Different interface configurations are available to suit home, amateur and advanced users.
