If you line up ten identical scanners, two factors condition the outcome of the scan: the quality of the software and the experience and eye of the scanner operator

Linocolor is the software which has the best reputation, based on the reviews in the trade press. Binuscan is the other scanner software whose name pops up the most frequently (available with or sold as optional by UMAX). Some Linocolor software is also available for some models of Umax scanners.
