  • Excerpt: I highly recommend this scanner for Kodachrome slide scanning. I am scaning slides-of family photos from 1950's, 60's and 70's and having great results. It comes with a color calibration for Kodachrome- easy to use.

Great scanner

  • Excerpt: The combination scanner's infrared scanning and the SilverFast software that comes with it does an amazing job of removing dust and scratches. Also the ability to save scans as Photoshop files is handy and the scans look great. The SilverFast software is a very good scanning software package.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible

Good scanner - poor software

  • Excerpt: I purchased the more expensive 8200i Ai to get the IT8 color calibration that is not included in the cheaper 8200i SE. This was a mistake. I only scan 35 mm negatives and the IT8 calibration only works with slides. This was never stated in the info sheets.
  • Pros: Good Resolution
  • Cons: Difficult Setup, Inaccurate Color, Poor Software

Does what it supposed to do well

Mr. Hippo, B&H Photo
9 December 2015
  • Excerpt: Great for scanning slides and negatives. Resolution and clarity is much better than the several years old scanner it replaced. I am using the included Silverfish software. I have been using the Silverfish software for years so there was a learning curve that took only minutes.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution

Take a trip back to the film days

  • Excerpt: Not a bad little scanner really. Confusing is it ships with two different scanner software. Silverlight has a free update for their package Plustek Has some issues and will not update itself. Once the new Sliverlight is installed I get a pop up at boot that states Silverlight is not installed.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
  • Cons: Difficult Setup
