Summary: I scanned about 3000 old 35mm color slides with this scanner, which took a very long time, but was faster than anything else in the price range. To get faster you will have to put out the big bucks for a professional machine which you will never justify unless you begin advertising and doing this...
Summary: Purchased the 7300 last year from Amazon to upgrade from the 7200se. The unit is a vast upgrade in image quality for scaning slides and film strips over a flatbed scanner with film attachments.
Summary: after 2 weeks and over 700 negatives and slides scanned i find very little to complain about with this scanner. i am using this under osx leopard and have not tried the windows software. pros - depending on the quality of the negatives or slides the results can be absolutely amazing.
Summary: I was a professional photographer and photographic lab technician for a total of 17 years and find the Plustek 7300 a cost-effective and useful tool. I have approximately 8000, old slides and negatives to sort through, and I will probably only scan a small fraction of them, so a...
Summary: I'm going to review this scanner in relation to another film scanner I have used, the Nikon Coolscan 5000 ED. Why don't I still have the 5000? With the scanner and all the attachments I had, I had about $2K invested in the 5000.
Summary: Yes, It's slow but worth the wait. I left film photography several years ago to get "into" the digital era. But I missed the quality of Ilford and Kodak B&W film. Plus I have tons of Negatives laying around.
Summary: The Plustek scanner has been great so far after 700 slides is working great. I use it with OS X Leopard. The photos are looking great and get a color and brightness tweak automatically. there are shortcuts you will use when you get used to it.
Summary: I was looking for a film scanner as I have a lot of negatives that I need to move to a digital format. This scanner works just as described. My only wish is that I had more than one film holder. I've ordered two extra and I know this will speed things up.
Summary: Haven't done too much with this scanner yet, but my dad and I pulled it out of the box and had it scanning sides in less than 15 minutes. Documentation for mac is a little confusing, wasn't sure that it would work for the mac at first since the was no driver software for the mac, but there was...
Summary: The Silverfast software makes this a must purchase. Digitizing several thousand slides with all manner of color problems and uncleanable dirt is a problem that this scanner and software handles nicely. It takes time to remove specks and problems but really does a nice job.
