View Full Version : Scanners: Witch one? (not the usual questions)

07-23-2004, 11:53 PM
Hi Folks, iīve made a search here at the CGtalk forum and saw a lot of scanners threads, iīve learned something about scanners but i am still lacking information on some subjects.
I want to buy a scanner so i can make 2D animations, for that i want a fast and powerfull scanner (i think that i am not the only one :lol:)

I am from Brazil and here the products are quite expensive, because of that i give up of buying a scanner that supports sheets alimentation (hahaha i donīt know how to translate this... it is when the scanners can scan a lot of sheets on a roll, like a printer). Is this really helpfull? It is 3x more expensive tham the normal scanners...

Them i found a Canon scanner with a very nice price, but i donīt know if it is a nice scanner, here is some information :
