Great little scanner

SunPark, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I bought this scanner to enable the archiving of the many 35mm slides that I sitting in boxes. The scanner is connected to a Mac and, since the quick scan software is not functional on a Mac, Iam using the included Silverfast software.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible
  • Cons: Slow

Software Complicated but good scanner

Richard, B&H Photo
4 March 2015
  • Excerpt: I used to copy 35mm color slides and B&W negatives using a light box and a macro setup. It gave great results but was complicated, slow and could not do color negatives due to the orange mask. This scanner works really well but the software does have a steep learning curve.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
  • Cons: Steep Learning Curve

As good as Coolscan V

kingzrule, B&H Photo
19 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I purchased a great, used Nikon Coolscan V, and I also own a nice Epson V750 flatbed. This Plustek OpticFil 8200i Ai is great for 35 mm film and slides. After spending a few hours comparing the results to the Coolscan V, I have come to the conclusion that there is little or no difference.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Resolution

It is now completely useless.

Mike Harman, Amazon
15 February 2015
  • Summary: I bought a Plustek Opticfilm 7300 a few years ago and it worked with Windows XP, but I can't load or download the software, drivers, or updates to make it work with a new Windows 8.1 system. It is now completely useless.

... for the Plustek 8200i Ai Film Scanner which is amazing for color negatives or positives

John T. Morita, Amazon
14 February 2015
  • Summary: I followed the advice from previous owners and purchased VueScan to manage the scratch and dust removal for the Plustek 8200i Ai Film Scanner which is amazing for color negatives or positives. Also, purchased the scanner as refurbished at a much lower price.

A slide scanner that serves as a great time traveler

3 February 2015
  • Summary: Like many, my wife and I started taking photos well before the digital age, and we now have countless boxes of color slides of family and friends that we want to digitize and merge in with our collection of recent digital images.

Great tool for Digitizing

Papa 2, B&H Photo
3 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I purchased the OpticFilm 8200i Ai to digitize the best exposures I have made on negative color film over the past 47 years. The scanner and the included SilverFast Ai Studio 8 produce very nice digital files with natural colors. I find the dust and scratch removal function indispensable.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
  • Cons: Time Consuming To Set Up

Has done an excellent job on slides

Lou, Amazon
31 January 2015
  • Summary: Has done an excellent job on slides. Have not tried it yet on color negatives. It took a great deal of trial and error in order to get the software to do a good job. The "edit" mode is the one I am currently using, which seems to be a general usage setting.
