Polaroid SprintScan 35 Plus


Bought it when it was brand new in the late 90s - just replaced the original 35 model. It was expensive then, but this was before the days of digital cams, and I had to crank out scans of slides at night after shooting and picking up film in the labs....

shadow detail was better than the competing Nikon units at the time, but it still didn't come anywhere near a drum scan. Any image I sold to advertisers at the time had to be scanned at the local lab on a Scitex or sent to a shop in Chicago to get a...

it has lost calibration or the light source is bad, or it is an incompatibility with Photoshop under XP, since I cannot make anything work with it any longer, even though it still scans smoothly and puts out images, but something is really off with the...

SprintScan 35 ES ,LE, Plus


First of all, lets get the numbers straight. There are to the best of my knowledge (3) model versions of this scanner. The "Sprintscan 35 (also known as 35ES), Sprintscan 35LE, and Sprintscan PLUS. The "LE" seems to be the "Low End" scanner of the ...

Well built, low cost lamp, available software and manuals

Sometimes a bit difficult to insert slides.(Spring clips are Strong!)

Dated, but still very functional Film & Negative scanner


This scanner represents one of the best deals on the used market today. For around $60 (about 5% of its original retail price) you can snag one on ebay. For that you can expect to get a clean unit, a film strip holder, an extra bulb & a SCSI cable. ...

Very affordable on used market, works great.

You won't be making great poster size blow ups from these images.

Polaroid SprintScan 35 Plus


I used this scanner to fix a bunch of photos that my wedding photographer messed up. It worked like a charm. The resolution is great, and it doesn't take too long to get a max res. scan. It is a bit loud though... Check out to print...

High resolution & speed

Polaroid SprintScan 35 Plus


I have the 35es model, which Dmax is only 3.0 compared to 3.4 of the 'plus'. Many people don't like polaroid software. I think it's just fine, provides enough tools for tweaking. 8x10 print from epson 750 looks great. For a casual photographer it is...

Good color and sharpness. Software is fine with slide scanning, you can view the histograph while changing the parameters

loading system--hard to load the slide right ; shadow area kind of weak

Polaroid SprintScan 35 Plus


I have owned this machine for three years and it has earned its cost 50 times over. I only wish is Polaroid would build a multi-format film scanner that would do just as good job and cost l little more.

speed ; quality scans ; ease of use ; depentability

slide loading bay

Polaroid SprintScan 35 Plus


This is a great performer as it is touted to be, aside from it's quirky design, and the short lifetime before failure. Because of the high initial cost, I figured it would have lasted longer, in light of the little use it saw. I would recommend trying...

Polaroid Printscan 35 plus..purchased this unit because of its capability to record a wider range of tones. I was impressed with its performance with color negatives, slides, and black and white negatives. The best part of using this scanner is its...

The only problem the irked me was the slide-through loading bay. This configuration makes it impossible to place the unit next to other equipment, because you must have access to the front side of the machine. I see that the 4000 has gone to front...
