  • How to choose a scanner?

    Hello guys,

    Does anybody use scanner for their drawings or illustrations here?
    I'm looking for a scanner to buy for very detailed pencil drawing scans. I attached an example here what kind of quality i need.
    Could you recommend something or share your experience?
    Thank you.

      There aren't that many scanners to choose from any more. I use a Canoscan 8800 and I'd buy another Canoscan in a minute. Good machine.

        I bought a Canoscan based on PrintDriver's recommendation, and I'd buy another one in a heartbeat. It's a workhorse.
        This post is brought to you by the letter E and the number 9. Those are the buttons I push to get a Twix out of the candy machine.

          I agree, the Canoscan is a good scanner -- especially for the price. I've bought a couple of Epson Perfection V700 Photo Scanners for work, and would do so again if they're still made. They've been very reliable and produce high-quality scans. Unfortunately they're several hundred dollars more than the Canoscan.

              Actually, I do have a print related issue if you'd like to take a stab at helping me with. Should I post in the correct category with the issue and picture that goes with it?
