Flextight X1 Scanner

The new generation of Hasselblad scanners, the Flextight X1 and X5, are both built around the same foundation. A vertical optical system allows the CCD to face downwards, creating a glass-free optical path between the original and the lens. The patented virtual drum solution produces optimal focusing across the entire original and the flexible holder guarantees easy mounting and safe and secure handling of your originals. The components used in both Flextight scanners are basically the same, meaning that whichever solution you choose, the quality level is virtually identical. Differences between the models are more a matter of features and capabilities, especially with regards to productivity.

The Flextight X1 model should serve most photographers’ needs. Quality is unsurpassed, it is fast and it can take care of most kinds of originals. And, as with any other scanner in this family, it is easy to use.

Freedom of choice

The freedom not to have to choose between digital or film, for instance. The freedom to use whatever capture medium works best for a particular shoot or situation. And whether you choose to shoot film because the elements are against you or for creative reasons, with the new generation of Hasselblad scanners you know that you’ll be able to get your images safely into the digital world – wherever they began – with every subtle detail embedded in your negatives and slides accurately reproduced.

The Unique 3F Workflow

When selecting the 3F file format in automatic scan mode, images are scanned at a specified resolution of 16 bits per color. In this way the full color range of the original is extracted from the scan. The 3F file is never altered but acts as a sort of “preview scan” when you open it later, enabling you to re-do all operations or change any parameter you wish. Consider it like re-scanning, but without the film original present.

Furthermore – every time you save a file from the 3F format, your action history is embedded in the 3F file, which enables you to repeat these actions whenever you like. The 3F workflow also allows you to produce final TIFF images, cropped and corrected, with a single click of a button.
