Plustek OpticFilm 7600i Ai

 

Aimed at professional photographers, but just as appropriate for sophisticated prosumers who want the best possible scan quality, the Plustek OpticFilm 7600i Ai ($480 street) is a dedicated film scanner for 35mm slides and strips of film. It doesn't...

Hardware based dust and scratch removal. Claimed 7200 pixel per inch optical resolution. Professional level scan utility

Scans only one slide or frame of film at a time. Little to no automation in software

The Plustek OpticFilm 7600i Ai offers high quality film scanning with a professional level scan utility that gets the most out of the already capable hardware.

Plustek OpticFilm 7600i SE

 

Film scanners like the Plustek OpticFilm 7600i SE ($340 street) are dedicated to the proposition that even if film cameras are all but dead, there's still plenty of film lying around that needs to be digitized. If some of that film is yours, and it's...

Hardware-based dust and scratch removal. 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

The Plustek OpticFilm 7600i SE offers reasonably high-quality scans, thanks in large part to the bundled SilverFast SE scan utility, but scanning each slide is a time-intensive task.

Plustek OpticFilm 7600i -- Scanning 35mm Film

 

The scanner species devoted to 35mm film is nearly extinct. The Minolta 5400 died off long ago and Nikon's Coolscans can only be seen in captivity (although the company does still offer the Coolscan 9000).

The Plustek 7600i is a well-built, capable machine that made it simple to scan 35mm negatives and slides with helpful automatic defect removal using either the bundles SilverFast software, SilverFast Archive Suite or VueScan.

Dedicated film and slide scanner

 

The Plustek OpticFilm 7600i SE is a dedicated film scanner with a compact and simple design. Measuring 4.7 inches by 10.7 inches and weighing 3.5 pounds, the 7600i SE will not take up much space and is fairly portable. Shutterbug.com reviewer...

Good resolution, included software removes dust and scratches, cheaper than most slide scanners

No auto feeder, slow scanning on higher-quality settings

The scanner / software/update NONE WORK

 

World's worst product!

none zip nothing

a waste of your time, assuming that I can get my money back, that will be all that is wasted

Perfect

 

The package arrived today, with everything needed ; The drivers and included software installed correctly ; The scanner worked with no flaws ; free upgrade to Silverfast 8 via web download (version 6.x included w/product) ; PS plugin worked well also,...

The only con I have at the moment is the orientation of the power supply pins on the adapter. If using a surge protector it takes up too many spots , if it was able to be rotated 90 deg it would take up 1 spot. Small but irritating issue

Good Hardware, Dubious Software

 

Does the job. Not an expensive piece of Hardware. If you need to digitieold fading slides and negatives of yesteryear, this is good enough. Hire somebody to babysit it while it's working though because it is SLOOOOWW. I've only done slide so far, not...

Seem like a solid-enough piece of hardware ; Scans at ridiculously high resolution

The software is an abomination. It looks and feels like it was programmed using Visual Basic from 1994 for Windows 3.11 and hasn't been updated since ; It's really hard to determine "which way is up" when it comes to the way the emulsion side of the...

New life for 35 mm film and slides

 

This device does a great job scanning and correcting film and slides. The IR eliminates the dust and many of the scratches. I use Photoshop and the software bridges the scanned image into PS, so I can then make any final corrections. I was very happy...

As good as you can get for the money...

 

Without spending A LOT more money this is about as good as you will get. Included silverfast software has some neat features, but it is not intuitive and takes a long time to get good results. Spend the money and download vuescan and you get good...

Great pcs of tech

 

first experience with a film/slide scanner, I'm very satisfied with the scanner and would recommend this for anyone who would like to use it for scanning in old negatives for archiving
