Summary: results are great, I don't use the included software, I'm using VueScan. Of course the low price means you have to do a lot of the work but it was a fair trade off for me. I got to where I could do the loading etc fairly quickly. Scans can take a while if you use max resolution and some dust/scratch removal. Overall it's what I've been waiting for, a cheap way to get high res scans.
Summary: This is my first experience with a film/slide scanner. This scanner produces good results, just what I need for scanning old negatives for archiving. The price is reasonable. I'll probably use it until I'm done with my negative scanning and that will be it. The scratch remover is not perfect but it's generally good on most minor scratches or dust spots. If the scratches are too big, the software won't be able to perfectly fix them.
Summary: I was looking for an affordable scanner with a reasonable scan time and dust and scratch removal to scan old family negatives and slides. The Plustek OpticFilm 7200i has given me all the features I need for 35mm scanning at a very reasonable price. [...] I would recommend this scanner to any amateur or small volume studio.
Summary: To options quick scan and Intellident scan both work great. This scanner is very fast, reliable for 35mm and slide film. Very quite. I am happy with it so far. Dont worry about anything this product comes within, you just need your film But poorly it comes with what I think is poor software. You have to use this third party software. When scanning you have to first use Presto! than save Jpeg, Tiff or whatever you want.
Summary: I purchased this scanner to replace a model I'd used for about 6 years. I've only made a few scans with it so far, but it seems to do a solid job. Scans are a little dark in the default setting, but the bundled software does well in correcting the colors.
Summary: For the price range, this is an excellent 35mm scanner for small jobs. Just don't expect it to handle volume, as each slide needs to be done one at a time, including ALL the computer processing for each! Regarding the SilverFast 6.5 software, that was an experience in it's self to install! It seems s/n on the Plustek package was incorrect. But after a few emails to SilverFast, their tech figured out that a few of the letter "J" where printed as the number "3".
Summary: The physical machine seems to be very stable. I have pushed about 800 slides at 7200 dpi through it in about 10 days. I am pleased with the results using the Quickscan option. Expertise: Above average Problems Encountered: The software feels like it was somewhat pasted together. PageManager dies frequently. Not clear to it's exact role or how to not use it. The SRD software, although it looks good, is very slow.
Summary: Good Morning, First I wanted to thank you for sending my order so quickly. I ordered the scanner on Wednesday and received it Thursday. That kind of service is appreciated . What is most fulfilling is that the Plustek OpticFilm 7200iSE is a marvelous little device that is easy to set up, work, and produces very nice digitized slides for a small price. I had originally tried scanning slides on three different flatbed scanners with mediocre results.
