Manufacturer's Description

The Plustek OpticFilm 8100 is a dedicated film scanner and as such can produce images of much greater dynamic range and with greater efficiency than a flatbed can manage. It comes supplied with negative and slide carriers and is bundled with excellent imaging software.

High Quality Scanning
The OpticFilm 8100 scans at 7200dpi resolution and has a 48-bit colour depth, ensuring your images are highly detailed and have spot-on colour rendition. With 64-bit hardware and software support and Multi-Exposure function to improve dynamic range (defines highlights and shadows far better) you have added control over how your pictures look.

The Optic Film 8100 comes with a holder for four mounted slides and a holder for a strip of up to 6 negatives.

Bundled Software
This scanner comes supplied with three fantastic packages to organise and get the best out of your film and slides:

SilverFast SE Plus 8 by LaserSoft Imaging – a highly specified scan manager with WorkflowPilot, intuitive GUI and multi-tasking – a powerful tool for creating, editing and optimising colour reproduction of your scans
Plustek QuickScan for easy one-click snapshot scanning
NewSoft Presto! PageManager 7.23 – document management software from which you can create PDF files and convert for use in Word or Excel. Organise files like you would in Internet Explorer, open scans without opening other applications, and stack image and document files of different types. You can even extract text from images using OCR (Optical Character Recognition), annotate files, and crop, rotate, flip and enhance images.

The Optic Film 8100 comes with a holder for four mounted slides and a holder for a strip of up to 6 negatives. It also comes with a carrying bag which accommodates two film holders, USB lead and a power adapter as well as the scanner itself.
