Extraordinary Image Quality
At the heart of the Expression 13000XL is a high-definition CCD sensor with a resolution of 2,400 x 4,800 dpi. To eliminate image ‘ghosting’, the sensor is covered with anti-reflection coated glass while Epson’s Micro Step Drive technology moves the optical carriage with ultra-high precision to produce greater detail. Together with an optical density of 3.8 Dmax and 48-bit bit depth, the scanner allows you to easily and consistently achieve scans with superior tones and colour reproduction.


Impeccably Clear and Sharp Scans
Beyond optical resolution, the CCD sensor sports a new 6-line CCD sensor array with large pixels that provides greater scanning details during every pass. The scanner is also equipped with an Auto Focus system for clearer and sharper scans. The optical system can achieve pinpoint focusing automatically, or allow you to take full creative control via optional Manual Focus.


Versatile Film Support
With the optional Transparency Unit installed, the Expression 13000XL becomes a film scanning powerhouse. It accepts a wide range of film formats from 35 mm film to A3-sized transparencies and comes with 2 sets of film holders for the following film formats: 35 mm strip film, 35 mm mounted film, 6 x 18 cm medium format film and 4 x 5 inch large format film.
