I have Canon 9000F. I mostly scan color photo (positives) and documents. I am not sure whether i should calibrate my scanner and if, yes, then what Target should I use and also ehere to get one from.

Dear customer,

The calibration makes sure your scanner delivers the best possible color representation.
It measures the color space available to your individual device and makes sure it is used to the full extend.
The calibration will make sure a color caste caused by the hardware is corrected.

It makes sense to calibrate your scanner if you require the best color representation from your scans.

Transparency and reflective modes must be calibrated separately due to the different light sources they use.
But it is possible to only calibrate the mode you require.

So if you want to calibrate the reflective mode you only need a reflective target.
But calibrating transparency additionally requires a transparent target.

We offer targets produced on Kodak and Fuji materials which can be used equally.

The Kodachrome transparency targets however are special as they are used exclusively to calibrate SilverFast's Kodachrome mode.

We offer our targets in two qualities.
Our individually measured targets offer an even higher precision than our already top quality batch measured targets which already excel the requirements of the IT8 standard.

kind regards,
Arne Ketelhohn.
