don't lose your silverfast CD !!

  • Summary: Great scanner, great results. I used it to scan thousands of pictures initially after it was bought. A year forward I wanted to start reusing it, couldn't find the CD (who saves CDs these days) with the software serial number. I contacted silverfast, they referred me to plustek.

Great product, bad software to scan slides

  • Excerpt: I would give 5 stars to this product. The software that comes with the scanner is great to scan negatives, but when you try to scan slides (positives), results are very disappointing. I tried different settings and no good results with any of them.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution

OK scanner, Good software

  • Summary: If you want high resolution slide scanning, it doesn't. As the guy at Plustek told me, it's only $500, what do you expect? If you want high-res buy the 120 for $2K. However, if a 9X12, or almost 10X14 with pixels squaring, then this will work for you.

Great little scanner

SunPark, B&H Photo
12 May 2015
  • 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

Impressive results!

Michael D., Newegg
23 April 2015
  • Summary: I have been obsessive about image quality since the days when I would use a grain magnifier to focus my darkroom enlarger. I am completely satisfied with the results scanning b&w negatives from the 1950's, a glass enclosed slide from 1941, and many Kodachromes from the 1970s.
  • Pros: Scan quality Software Size Value
  • Cons: Software and hardware are from different manufacturers. Learning curve.

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
