Product Description

The HP Scanjet G4050 Photo Scanner is designed for families and photo enthusiasts with large numbers of photos, slides, negatives or medium/large format transparencies which they want to convert into professional-quality, colour-accurate digital files.

HP-exclusive 6-colour high-definition scanning for photos, slides, film and negatives.

Convert packs of photos, slides, film and negatives into easy-to-manage digital images. Get superior colour accuracy with industry-leading 6-colour, 96-bit scanning technology – exclusive to HP. Capture the finest detail too at 4800 x 9600-dpi resolution2 and get crisp, high definition results for beautiful reprints, enlargements and creative projects.

Scan stacks of photos, slides, films or negatives, and automatically remove dust and scratches.

Capture multiple originals at once – up to sixteen 35 mm slides, 30 negative frames, two medium format (120 mm) film frames, one large format (4 x 5 inch) film frame or four 10 x 15 cm prints – and save as separate files. Remove dust and scratches at the touch of a button using built-in infrared technology – no need for software touch-ups. Keep important documents safe too, with clear, crisp scans at the touch of a button – you can even scan 3-D objects such as books and valuables.

Preserve your memories at the touch of a button – plus easy colour restoration and photo fixing.

Choose one-touch photo or film scanning for optimised settings. Bring old or damaged photos, slides, film and negatives back to life with a range of easy-to-use tools. Restore faded colour, remove red-eye and bring detail out of dark photos, all using HP Real Life technologies. Manage your documents – make copies and reprints at the touch of a button too, and save files as PDFs for easy sharing. Organise, edit and email photos – without large attachments – with HP Photosmart Software.
