The Leafscan 45 is a film scanner for digitizing color and b&w 35mm, 2 & 4x5 negatives and slides. The award-winning scanner delivers color purity, wide dynamic range and image resolution that only drum scanners have been able to provide in the past. The scanner provides the highest dynamic range of any desktop scanner, reproducing the finest gradations within shadows and highlights without artifacts.

Commercial photographers have known for years that their Leafscans are crisp and clean.
