Plustek OpticFilm 8100

 

The Plustek OpticFilm 8100 film scanner delivers reasonably high-quality scans, but it lacks hardware-based dust and scratch removal and requires some effort to get good scans.

Rated at 7,200 pixels-per-inch (ppi) optical resolution. Comes with SilverFast SE Plus 8, a sophisticated scan utility

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 8100 ($349) is Plustek's least expensive dedicated film and slide scanner. It's also the only one without hardware-based dust and scratch removal, offering a less robust, but still welcome, software-only version instead....

Plustek OpticFilm 8100 review

 

The Plustek OpticFilm 8100 is a compact film scanner with 7200dpi resolution.

It’s questionable how much of an advance the 8100 is over previous Plustek models, and there seems little reason for owners of previous OpticFilms to upgrade. Nonetheless, SilverFast SE Plus 8 is a very effective piece of software, and the 8100...

Very good quality

 

No IR dust reduction. $100 less than the next model up. Perfect for B&W negatives than cannot benefit from IR dust reduction. Be aware that if you want to do Kodachrome with any scanner, you really need a Kodachrome calibration slide, which is extra.

Very good quality. Pretty good price.

This scanner has many, many controls if you are not inclined to use them get a scanner that is more automatic.

Expensive scanner. Poor quality

 

Compact. Nice design.

Bought a $200 epson flatbed scanner after scanning about 1600 of my mother's slides from the early 60's. 80% of the scans came out VERY dark - almost to the point of them being unviewable. The corrections (auto and manual) in the software result in...

Not worth the time or money

 

I bought this specifically to scan some old slides from the 50's - the 80's. Most are in mint to near miont condition and played great through an old slide projector. After working with the program and the slides I decided that this item just does not...

Top notch scanner

 

My husband has purchased other slide / negative scanners in the past and found them to be low quality and unsatisfactory. However, he is 100% satisfied with the Plustek OpticFilm 8100 scanner. The scanner and accessories are very high quality and...
