Superb Film Scanner!

Stefan, B&H Photo
18 June 2015
  • Excerpt: This scanner gives superb scan results of 35mm film, on par with expensive scans from professional labs. The highest 7200 dpi scan resolution is actually over sampling the film gran too much, so I use the second-best 3400 dpi option which gives TIFF or JPG files that correspond to approximately 48...

A good scanner with a good price

Eric N., Amazon
2 June 2015
  • Summary: This scanner has an impressive array of pre-scan tweaks that might eliminate any need for post-scan editing, however I still prefer to handle this post-scan. There was a bit of a learning curve in selecting scanning settings, but once I got past this, scanning was pretty simple.

I love this scanner

Cliffy, Amazon
9 April 2015
  • Summary: I love this scanner! It's very easy to use. No more contact sheets - It saves me a lot of time and money renting a darkroom. You can run into problems with dust particles at high resolutions, which requires some editing post-scan, but I have learned to minimize with using a camel brush & air...

This is a good one

Zues, Amazon
2 April 2015
  • Summary: So far I have scanned 700+ negatives and it is working great. I like my Plustek scanner. It is sure nice to have "Old" negatives turned digital. One thing that could be improved would be how the negatives are loaded into the tray.

I am one happy camper.

Rich, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Like many older photo guys, I have a 35mm slide collection with some worthy of digitizing. A number of years ago, I managed access to a Nikon CoolScan that was being used to convert pathology slide collections. This was for me, the gold standard.

Good Purchase

Fordy, B&H Photo
22 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I searched out a scanner for my 95 yo dad to use. He wants to scan all of his archived slides so he can watch them on his tv. The challenge was to find a scanner with very simple operation, hardware his old dexterity can operate, and the flexibility to handle more complexity when he gives the...

Slow?

Tom, B&H Photo
5 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I immediately started scanning slides and color negatives. I used the quick scan button to see if the image was something I wanted to keep. If it was, then I used Intelliscan button and selected the SilverFast work flow option. I opted to save the scans to PSD format for Photoshop.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible, Works on Network
