    FS: ULF flatbed scanner: 12x17 Epson 836XL

    Well, here's my latest contribution to the local Photo Bazaar - a nice Epson 836XL flatbed scanner. It's listed scan area is 12.2" X 17.2", so an 11x14 is no problem. I scan 12x20's in two sections, and stitch them together in PS. The listed scan resolution is 800x1600 dpi. I've used the scanner for several years without problems. I'm confident it's got several more years of useful life.

    Here's a link to Epson's Specs/FAQ regarding the scanner.

    This scanner connects to a computer either through a SCSI interface, or a PC's parallel port. AIR, this scanner will plug right into a Mac, but you'll have to research that. I use it on a PC running XP, and installed a cheap Adaptec AIC-7850 board to provide the SCSI interface. The Adaptec board is not included.

    I'll ask $300 for this, and, of course, entertain any offers you might put forth. As you might expect from a ULF scanner, it's a big bruiser, weighing about 45 lbs. I'll make this Local Pick-Up Only, but I'm always ready to accomodate anyone who's desparate enough to want to pay for shipping.

    BTW, there is a transparancy lid that can be used with this scanner, but I'm selling this one without the transparency lid (and I'm keeping the one that has the lid...you knew I had two of these, didn't you?).

    Hmmm...I seem to have left something out...like where "Local Pickup" might happen. Doh!

    This time of year, I spend half my time in the NYC area, and half in New Hampshire. If you're anywhere near the Merritt or I-91 (Hartford, Springfield, up to White River Junction), we might be able to arrange for roadside delivery

    Let's try this question again - for local pickup - where are you located?

    Implied, but not stated, would be the possibility of pickup/meeting in the NYC area.

    So, is this a print scanner, or does it scan film?

    This is a flatbed scanner - for prints.

    This was a top-of-the-line scanner, with different, interchangeable lids available, e.g., an auto-feed mechanism to scan a pile of documents unattended. The scanner for sale here has a blank, white surface under the lid, so that the base functions only as a flatbed. I have another scanner with a base identical to the one for sale, but with a transparency lid mounted - it has a lamp inside, and can be used to scan negatives.

    Why do I have two of these scanners? Because I had the same question as you, and bought the wrong one first.

    OK, so we've established that this is a flatbed scanner and that it's located in the NYC area, with a possiblity of delivery in western New England. What's everybody waiting for? Don't you need a ULF scanner? Don't you want to scan your View Camera magazines two pages at a time?

    Let's try one last price drop here, before I drop it on Craigslist and get swamped by bargainhunters.

    The price for the scanner is now $200.

    For local-sale-only items, that is your best option. I am surprised you did not list it there first, and then come here as a last resort.

    I have no current need to digitize anything I have shot with anything but mediocre quality (and even then very rarely), and I don't live by you. Otherwise, I'd probably purchase it.
