Epson Perfection V30 Scanner
Optical Density Evaluation of Scanners
In a study performed by NSTL of a range of scanner models from four vendors, the four Epson models consistently yielded higher maximum optical density values. Higher optical density means better shadow detail and more mid-range tones.
Image quality is more than a number. The resolution of a scanner gives an idea of its enlargement power, but the image quality of a scanner also depends greatly on the sensor and lenses used within the scanner's optical system and how well they reproduce color, tonality and gradations with little to no mechanical noise. These qualities are measured by the specification called Optical Density.
