Andrew, Kent Scanning Negs 1980-1995

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very good and well made product, very good quality scans.
Bundled software is very good.
Auto repair works well on colour negs, but its DIY for the poor condition B/W, Oh and the SilverFast software is only set up to recognise the 8200i scanner, so theres no chance of using it with your flat bed.

intel Mac 10.8.2
Bad points:
Not found any as yet, But a 110 neg holder would have been a nice extra.

Trevor, Cambridge

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
High quality scans
Easy to use once set up
Silverfast software intuitive and easy to learn
Bad points:
Watch out for driver conflicts! These WILL stop the scanner linking to the software. My problem was an old wireless printer driver. Worked fine once this driver was disabled, but it was a bit of a fiddle to sort out.

Bob, Kimpton 40+ years in IT

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Compact and easy to use
Bad points:
Handling of dust and scratches is TERRIBLE! It is worse than the 8-year old PF3650 for which it was intended to be a replacement. It is not even in the same league as my 4-year old flatbed Epson V700. I have returned it. (I did not compare it on unscratched, dust-free slides: my requirement is to scan very battered old slides.)

Manufacturer's Description

The Plustek OpticFilm 8200i SE has specialised illumination and optical technology to get the very best image quality and resolve the most subtle differences in edge contrast. In addition, this dedicated film scanner uses infra-red technology to detect physical defects such as scratches on the film, thus avoiding loss of image quality by having to retouch the image. Also includes first rate software packages.

High Quality Scanning
The OpticFilm 8200i SE 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.

Blemish Removal
This scanner has SilverFast iSRDTM technology which uses a special infrared channel from the light source. This is able to detect imperfections in the film surface without even “looking” at the visible image. Thus dust and scratches are corrected without loss of image detail.

The Optic Film 8200i SE 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.
