The Silverfast software is powerful and largely intuitive (I haven't used PhotoShop much so can't say how much better it is)

  • Summary: I digitized around 4000 slides last year using this device. Originals were made without automatic exposure and focus and most of the images were in need of some editing. The Silverfast software is powerful and largely intuitive (I haven't used PhotoShop much so can't say how much better it is). Bottom line is the resolution is fantastic, better than the grain of the Kodachrome 64 of the slides in many cases. The hardware is robust and trouble-free.

  • Summary: Good combination of price and quality. Izdeliya.Velikolepnoe good quality scan. Good software product support. Like the case included. Function like removing dust and scratches, infrared. As a disadvantage, the need for cutting the film.

I have had a good experience with this scanner. You get what you pay for!

  • Summary: Actually it is an 8200i scanner! I bought this scanner so that I could digitize all of my 35mm slides and negatives that I had prior to digital cameras, so that I can pass these along to my children. It works very well, although the documentation could have done a little bit more hand-holding. I have done hundreds and hundreds of slides by both the semi-auto and manual processes; it just depended how degraded the image was.

Excellent quality, easy to use. Great value!

  • Summary: Great value for the money... Much easier and faster than my Nikon coolscan, a 2054 x 1360 scan for cataloging my film and slides takes about 1 minute per frame. SilverFast AI studio software is easy to learn, and you quickly get consistent results. A max resolution multi-pass scan with dust and scratch removal takes several minutes, but that's a process you save for the couple of shots per roll that you really want to show off.

  • Summary: Excellent scanner. Will scan at 7200dpi in under 2 minutes. Software will reverse B&W negatives. Much faster than a Nikon. No auto feeder available.

Not easy to use, too slow and unnessary for 35mm films

shop.aerofotea, Ebay
9 January 2011
  • Summary: This scanner is actually very difficult to use - why? Because you need to find the correct drivers from the website - and there are three drivers you need to try - although my S/N starts at 5A15 but I actually need a 5A11 driver! The silverfast update also took me a while because I am the second owner of this scanner and I need to call the silverfast company to register the update! It took me 5 hours to just get this scanner working.

Good budget priced slide scanner ; not great for negs

crgg, Ebay

  • Summary: At the price I found this one ( 81.98 delivered in excellent condition ) I'm very happy with it . Much better for slides than negatives ( as expected ) . Scanning slides and negatives is far more problematical than print scanning . If you have a number of slides you need to do decent scans of fairly quickly , and can find one of these at a good price , I'd recommend it .

Save your slides!!

  • Summary: Bought this scanner to convert 400 color slides taken by my grandfather during his time abroad during the Korean War era. The slide holder allows you to easily move through scanning 4 slides in a row. The computer software included with the scanner is very user friendly. And the auto-correct feature of that software, with a little practices, yields photos that are almost perfect - without any scratches or blips from the original slide.

Excellent idea, poor execution

Slawomir M. Popiel "smp", Amazon
16 November 2009
  • Summary: Installation and setup was a breeze. Then first disappointment: the scanner produced nothing. A series of color dashes and dots for negative scan, a dark rectangle for positive scan. I've tried to pull and push the cables, buttons, and when I was about to pack it up, I've noticed a good picture on my computer screen. Without specific reason it started running all right and I was able to get about entire 35 mm film scanned.

This thing works

M. A. St Clair "Bandit23", Amazon
17 October 2009
  • Summary: Load the software and away you go. I scanned over 300 slides with the Plustek Opticfilm 7200 in a little over four hours. Once I got the hang of it and the correct scanning program it went a whole lot faster. I would recommend this scanner to anyone that has slides to digitize. While not for the professional it's great for the small volume person.
