New film scanner from Reflecta

Kenro has announced the launch of the Reflecta x4plus-Scan, the latest film scanner from Reflecta, the respected German manufacturer of cutting-edge digitization products.

The x4plus-Scan features a CMOS image sensor which utilises Instant Photo Capture technology (as in a digital camera) to provide quick scans (2 seconds for a colour scan at 1800 dpi). It is suitable for scanning photographic 35mm transparencies and negatives and also pocket film (110).

This new addition to the Reflecta range features a 2.4” LCD display, an integrated SD/SDHC card slot and a lithium battery that allows the scanner to be used independently from a computer or power supply. Completed scans can be stored on an external memory card or transferred directly via the USB port and cable provided.

Boasting an optical density of 3.0 Dmax and a 30 Bit colour depth the x4plus-Scan can be set to 2,400 dpi which is the equivalent of a 9 megapixel image. The unit come complete with image editing software, ArcSoft MediaImpression.

The scanner comes supplied with film holders for three framed slides up to 3.2mm thick, film strips up to six exposures and for 110mm film strips up to eight exposures. The x4plus-Scan is available now with an RRP of £160.

“The x4plus-Scan is the ideal choice for a keen photographer who wants to create a digital library of their existing silver-halide output,” says Kenro Managing Director, Paul Kench. “The quality of reproduction is first rate and the compact unit is simple to use. Don’t let all your slides and negs gather dust, start scanning and enjoy them again!”

Other products in the Reflecta range include digital microscopes, endoscopes, video and studio lights, USB record players plus its renowned selection of slide projectors. Kenro is the UK and Ireland distributor for Reflecta. If you would like further information, or want to find your nearest stockist, go to or call 01793 615836.
