Photography & Art Scanners
If you need a large format scanner for capturing artwork, photographs or satellite images - any full color original with highlights and shadow details - we recommend the SmartLF Gx+ 28, Gx+ 42 and Gx+ 56 large format scanner ranges.
The SmartLF Gx+ wide format scanner ranges are ideal photograph and art scanners because their CCD technology allows them to capture superb color images with exceptional shadow and highlight detail.
Scan up to 0.8″ (20 mm) thick
If your originals are mounted on poster board, no problem! The T (Thick) versions of SmartLF Gx+ large format scanners allow you to scan media up to 0.8″ (20 mm) thick.
Accurate color matching
If you need to exactly match the colors in your original, we recommend that you use a SmartLF Gx+ scanner with SmartWorks Pro software.
SmartWorks Pro includes a user friendly Calibration Wizard with closed loop calibration. This allows you to produce ICC profiles of the scanner and your printer with any ink and media combination.
It also supports the x-rite i1 / Eye One spectrophotometer, a color management and measurement tool for professionally profiling wide format graphics and fine art inkjet printers. The spectrophotometer can be used to improve the accuracy of ICC printer profiles, providing exceptionally high quality color definition for graphics perfectionists!
