slow but best for the money

Yakatony "Yaka Tony", Amazon
8 April 2012
  • 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...

Good entry level scanner

R. V. Jackson "Katy Railroad Memories", Amazon

  • 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.

Works as expected

B&WPhotogeek, Amazon

  • 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.

EASY AND WOKS WELL BUT SLOW

Nathan Webb "metrobilly", Amazon
2 July 2010
  • 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...

Good slide scanner

swoem2 "Hawk", Amazon

  • 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.

Easy! Even a caveman can do it....

Nik Carpenter, Amazon
4 May 2010
  • Summary: I Received the Plustek OpticFilm 7300 35mm film scanner a few days after it was ordered for me as a birthday gift; it arrived at my home in the foothills of the Beartooth Mountains in mint condition. It took me longer to find the instructions than it took to hook it up.

A great piece of equipment

M. Rydman "photo nut", Amazon
4 May 2010
  • Summary: Out of the box the 7300 does just what it should do. I am using it with my Corel photo software because that's what I'm used to. I am scanning slides from 1960 - 1965 at present and they look wonderful.

Excellent value

Samplerman "samplerman", Amazon
1 May 2010
  • Summary: This scanner works like scanners costing 10 -20x the price. I am impressed. However the software is not easy to figure out. Has so many options you mistakenly click the wrong button and jam the computer.

Good bang for the buck

Armando A. Hernandez, Amazon
23 April 2010
  • Summary: Mechanically it's simple to use. The software is something else however. After installing the software, one has to fine tune it to give optimal results. This isn't a bad thing just tedious, it's got a lot of filters to turn on or off. The results are well worth the tuneing.

Great way to retrieve old photos

P. K. Schwarz, Amazon
23 April 2010
  • Summary: This scanner works beautifully right out of the box. Very easy to digitize old slides, and have also scanned some old b/w negatives. Very quick and simple operation. Location of digital user manual is not immediately apparent, but is not really needed.
