Cameras

Cameras for scanning and those for normal photographic purposes have very different requirements, though there is some overlap. Even a relatively affordable, 'old' camera can get you very good scanning results. All the cameras we have recommended here do, under the right conditions, be good enough to draw most of the quality out of a normal 35mm frame. You will often find a bigger increase in quality by upgrading other parts of your scanning system - therefore we recommend that you use the camera you have. 

General Points

  • Mirrorless if preferred over a DSLR

  • Must have manual exposure settings​​

  • Must have interchangeable lenses (system camera)

  • Minimum resolution: 8MP for 35mm, 16MP for medium format

  • Full Frame sensors, for scanning, after seldom worth the extra cost over
    APS-C

  • A mirrorless camera with an electronic shutter/electronic front curtain will produce higher quality scans
