Minolta's new autofocusing system quickly focuses on the center of the image and produces razor-sharp scans. The Point AF mode is able to focus accurately on any point in the film area.
Images can also be manually focused or defocused using a slider bar.
Image processing gives additional control over image sharpness. If the original film image is soft, edges and details can be sharpened using the new unsharp mask, which produces subtle, yet striking, micro-image edge enhancement without effecting smooth gradations. Multi-sample scanning delivers virtually noise-free images, giving smooth and natural results for up to 16 samples.
The DIMAGE Scan Multi PRO automatically adjusts to the density range of scanned negatives to optimize the reproduction. For example, negatives with a large density range, such as pictures with backlit subjects, are controlled so that the highlight area retains detail rather than being washed out. Color images with a dominant color are analyzed to preserve the original appearance of the scene. The autoexposure (AE) Area Lock allows users to adjust exposure of the film by selecting an area on the image to calculate a new exposure.
During correction, images can be temporarily saved with a click of the Snapshot icon. Users compare changes made by viewing thumbnails and choose the best result.
Color tools allow flexible correction with RGB Color Balance or the Hue, Saturation and Lightness Correction palette. The tone curve and histogram is laid out in one window for quick and easy access. Fine adjustments can be made to a specific color on the Selective Color Correction palette.
The DiMAGE Scan Multi PRO's Custom Wizard automates the whole scanning procedure for a simplified scan setting process. The Custom Wizard can start the pre-scan, crop the image to the holder frame, apply Digital ICE3, activate the Image Correction Job function, carry out the final scanning and eject the holder.
