Quite Good for the Money

JK, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I have seen quite many complaints about the SilverFast software included. But I tried on my Mac and it worked pretty well as long as you don't use the dust removal function which I don't trust anyway because it removes some fine lines in the photo as well.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Inaccurate Color, Slow

Nice scanner.

  • Excerpt: The scans are pretty fast. I'm using it for old slides and negatives that are somewhat damaged. I have my res setting to 1800 - 2400 dpi. Once you can understand the software you can tweak as you go. A lot of the software is over kill for my project but it's nice to have.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Resolution

  • Summary: This is a solid piece of equipment and it does the job well. The dust and scratch removal tool is transparent, showing all such deformities as bright red marks before you decide whether or not to remove them all.

Good sanner

  • Excerpt: Using to scan slides from before digital to ensure I have them in my digital records. Most slides are either Velvia or Kodachrome, and the scanner handles these nicely. Scan quality as it appears on the screen is fuzzy, but when the scanned images are opened from the file, the image is excellent.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution

Good Price/performance ratio

  • Excerpt: I give a four star review for this scanner considering its low price and easy setup. I think that, while not being the best scanner on the market, it is convenient enough for its price range. I consider myself a perfectionist. In the beginning i was unsure about the quality of the scan.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Good Resolution

Good value for a portable device

  • Excerpt: Useful for visiting relatives who don't want to send their slides away and won't bring slides to a better scanner. I've seen better and faster slide scanners but they are more expensive and not portable like this. For what you pay its a decent product and solves the problems I have.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Widely Compatible
  • Cons: Poor Software

Great hardware, frustrating software.

Videoguy, B&H Photo
13 June 2014
  • Excerpt: I wanted to improve the resolution of scans of my 1970s-era Kodachromes over what I could get from my HP flatbet + slide attachment combination. The Optifilm 8100 fits the bill neatly, with a possible resolution of 7200 dpi, and comes with everything advertised, including a covering/carrying case.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Resolution
  • Cons: Poor Software

Great Scanner

John Ferebee, Amazon
2 May 2014
  • Summary: I have been using this model to scan 35MM black and white negatives. The process is very easy, fast, and the results are excellent. It became expensive to send my film out for development and scaning and I was looking for a better solution.
