We've had good luck with the Canon imageFORMULA DR-2020U Universal Workgroup Scanner


Also really like the Fujitsu ScanSnap s1500 but it is not flatbed

Thank you but none of these have the A3 specification.

Any other suggestions?

Sorry, missed the A3 requirement. I'm not aware of a scanner with all of those specs. Closest I can think of is the Fujitsu fi-6770, which has flatbed, ADF, and A3, but the DPI max is "only" 600:
I have never done any production scanning beyond 600 DPI (in fact, almost all of it is at 300 DPI, which is all that's needed for highly accurate OCR), so I'm not very familiar with 1200 DPI scanners. I'm curious – what kind of docs do you need 1200 DPI for? Regards, Joe

Thank you. Unfortunately the response came in a little late.
