Plustek OpticFilm 7400

 

At a claimed 7,200 pixels per inch (ppi), the 7400's optical resolution is easily high enough to retain enough detail to print images at 8 by 10 inches or larger, or even crop in on a part of the image and enlarge it.

Claimed 7,200 pixel per inch optical resolution. Comes with sophisticated scan utility for high-quality scans

Scans only one slide or frame of film at a time. Little to no automation in software. No hardware- based dust and scratch removal

The Plustek OpticFilm 7400 delivers reasonably high-quality scans, but it lacks the hardware-based dust and scratch removal you'll find in Plustek's more expensive models.

Great Value

 

When used in combination with the included Silverfast software, this is an economical way to transfer 35mm slides and film to high quality digital images. This was my first experience with this kind of scanner, and I followed the directions given, and...

A good affordable choice for 35mm film scanning

 

Over the last few years, I've migrated back to mostly film use and away from digital cameras. In spite of that, it's nice to have digital copies of all pictures for sharing online and to ease getting drugstore prints. That said, the quality of film...

Sharp & quick scans with faithful color, low price

35mm only, sometimes misaligned images on multi-pass, requires constant user interaction

Purchsed the 7400 Christmas 2009 and used it so far for several dozen 35mm images, a mixture of colour slide (Fuji Sensia), B&W negative (Ilford FP4) and colour negative (various). Overall impression is positive with an apparently well made unit which...

Fine scanner

 

I have previously owned a Jenoptic 2100 which I thought was good for the price, but this Plustek just blew it out of the water! Negatives that had previously been unusable now give printable results thanks to the multi-scan tech.So far I have only used...

As a video professional we often get large slide to CDROM conversion jobs. For the holiday this year we were presented with close to 5,000 slides. We currently own a Plustek Opticfilm 7200 but with the amount of slides we have we bought the Pacific...

Plustek OpticFilm 7400 Film Scanner

 

The included Silverfast software is difficult to learn. With multiple boxes it takes up too much screen space. Need dual monitors. Not Intuitive to use. Instructions not done well.

Plustek Opticfilm 7400 35mm Scanner review

 

Capable of scanning at up to 7200dpi and with new environmentally friendly features, and no warm up time, is the Opticfilm 7400 the ideal film scanner for those on a budget?

High resolution scans; Good value for money; Multi exposure feature with high contrast slides; Bundled software is easy to use; Padded carry case; Accurate colour reproduction

Supplied software wouldn't work with 64bit Windows 7
