Plustek OpticFilm 8200i SE

 

The Plustek OpticFilm 8200i SE film scanner delivers reasonably high-quality scans, but be prepared to invest some time in learning how to use its scan utility.

Optical resolution rated at 7,200 pixels per inch. Hardware-based dust and scratch removal.

Scans only one slide or frame of film at a time. Little automation in the software.

That said, if 35mm film and slide scanning is all you need, and you're willing to spend the time both mastering SilverFast and adjusting the settings individually on every scan, the Plustek OpticFilm 8200i SE can be a good choice. And its...

Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai

 

The Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai film scanner offers high resolution, hardware-based dust and scratch removal, and simple color calibration for scans.

Optical resolution rated at 7,200 pixels per inch. Hardware-based dust and scratch removal. Automatic color calibration.

Scans only one slide or frame of film at a time. Little automation in software.

If 35mm film and slide scanning is all you need, however, and you're willing to spend the time learning SilverFast and using it on every scan, the Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai could be a good choice. More than that, between its 7,200ppi resolution, its...

Plustek OpticFilm 8200i SE

 

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...

Not found any as yet, But a 110 neg holder would have been a nice extra.

excellent dust removal

Silverfast constantly flashes up free upgrades but when you have registered wants payment for the upgrade. Disgraceful!!!

Plustek OpticFilm 8200i SE

 

High quality scans Easy to use once set up Silverfast software intuitive and easy to learn

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.

mechanically good

locating slide carriage to the notches is fiddly; basic software good, but Silver Fast is difficult (I use the basic software, then ACDsee to tweak)

Plustek OpticFilm 8200i SE

 

Compact and easy to use

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...

Why two software disc's (Yours and Silverfast) please combine them so set up is more simple.

Great hardware, but...

 

Reasonably-priced support for negative/slide scanning is waning. The top-o-the-line scanners are from Nikon and they are going for $2000 on up to about $7000. The Plustek OpticFilm line is the best you're going to do under $2000. Remember, film...

Hardware seems solid and well-designed. It weighs about as much as a brick and kind of feels like one with your eyes closed.

No serious manual comes with it, nor is one available on the Plustek site. Essential information is missing. Example: does one scan with the emulsion side up or down. Not in the "manual." I found it on a printed sheet that came with the film strip...
