Plustek OpticFilm 7300 film scanner


Plustek may not be the first scanner name on your lips when you start to cast your eye about when researching the market for a machine to digitise all those old negatives and slides stashed in shoe boxes under the bed. But, it has a steadily growing...

Ease of use, optical resolution, great scans and software package, Auto frame detection

Slow on very high resolution scans; price makes more versatile flatbed scanner or All in One device options attractive

Inexpensive, efficient (up to a point) scanner that won’t break the bank but will provide good quality scans.

Plustek OpticFilm 7200


If you have lots of slides and 35-mm negatives to digitize, the Plustek OpticFilm 7200 probably sounds like the scanner you've been waiting for. This low-cost film scanner ($199 direct) claims a resolution of 7,200 pixels per inch (ppi), theoretically...

Scans slides and negatives. Comes with SilverFast, a high-end, but easy-to-use, scan program. Includes a one-slide-size light box on top

Requires manual positioning of the film or slide. Scans one slide or photo at a time. Scan quality is mixed

The Plustek OpticFilm 7200 claims a 7,200-pixels-per-inch (ppi) optical resolution, but it doesn't truly deliver. High-resolution scans are marred by artifacts similar to pixelization. And the overall quality and acceptability of each scan depends on...

The Plustek OpticFilm 7200i 35mm Film Scanner; An Affordable, High-Resolution Scanner


Some believe film is dead, but I get as many e-mails from photographers as ever asking about film scanning.

Plustek OpticFilm 7200i Scanner


Amateur photographers and enthusiasts rejoice. All those negatives and slides need no longer sit in the dark like mushrooms. Bring them out, start scanning, and who knows what gems you'll discover and what memories will come to life. The Plustek...

Easy to set up and use. Small footprint. SilverFast Ai software and built-in dust & scratch removal is good. High optical resolution and good detail. Surprisingly low price. For the amateur photographer who wants easy access to their family memories or...

Dynamic Range is not quite as good as needed for professional work. Refinement needed in film profiles and format support. Slow scanning in high resolution. iSRD makes it crawl. Windows only. For the professional who has a requirement for a scanner...

Review: Plustek OpticFilm 7200 Scanner


Flatbed scanners are great for scanning pictures, sheet fed scanners are great for scanning documents and film scanners are great for scanning negatives. Plustek is hoping the OpticFilm 7200 is great for scanning negatives and slides.

Plustek OpticFilm 7300


it's neat, it loads quickly and has lots of facilities (?too many?)

No basic guide - It needed a quick one two three guide to get to the basics, if you just want to save your old negs and slides at high quality. Instead you get a 479 page manual which can help you do all sorts of photoshop like manipulation and it can...

Plustek OpticFilm 7300


Simple to operate in Quick Scan mode and produces excellent images.

Loaded all kinds of unwanted rubbish onto my computer which I am still trying to get rid of. This alarmingly trys to connect to the internet without telling you everytime you go near it.

Plustek OpticFilm 7300


Good quality of scans. There is an excellent option to be able to do batch scans so that the file numbers are created automatically by adding to text you have already entered eg you enter "Film 23 -" and it creates files "Film 23 - 1", "Film 23 - 2"...

The software looks complex to use but with a little be of effort it is easy to operate.
