I Love It!

As stated by everyone, the software has a real learning curve, but with practice and patience the results are superb. The only flaw that I've found is that the IR scratch and dust removal system is not compatible with a lot of black & white films. Apparently, the silver in the emulsion reflects the IR and causes a really weird fractal or mosaic pattern in the scan. The solution is simple just turn the IR system off. I've scanned in a couple of hundred negatives and the more I use it the ...

The most important thing is to read the instructions and follow them to the letter.

Plustek OpticFilm 7600i SE,

By

I am absolutely, totally, 100%, impressed with this scanner and software. I used to have Kodachromes outsourced but they were always compromised. I finally have a setup that will produce pictures at least as good as the best digitals. Steep learning curve, but if you have used scanners, it's manageable. Fabulous!

Last Slide Scanner Standing

By

I am scanning 35mm slides from Quickscan into Photoshop. So far, I am delighted with the results. Someday I will probably try the German softweare. It is a bit slower than my former Nikon Super Coolscan, but, neither unit being a speed demon, I will settle for the beautiful images.

Good results for little money

By

Bought to replace my Minolta Dimage Elite 5400. Not quite as sharp, but cost less than 1/2 of the Minolta, but scans make really good 11x14's. Silverfast software is great, the isrd feature of Silverfast really cleans up the dust and scratches on slides and b/w negatives, unlike digital ice which will not work on either Kodachromes or b/w negatives

Brian, an answer to you. The back of adapter says input: 100-240 VAC 50/60 Hz 0.3A. OUTPUT: 5VDC 1.05A. Hope this helps you. Hannah

Terrific Scanner

Copied thousands of transparencies, worked great every time. Produced accurate color

strange colours

By

There were great reviews of this unit and I have lots of slides from years of shooting transparencies. The software seemed a bit complicated but ok, but I can't get decent looking files. The colours seem quite far off no matter how much I adjust them and almost cartoonish with certain colours, particularly the reds. I love the size the size of the unit and can easily fly with the unit, but alas the results are really just too poor for me.

Good results for the price

By

Good but not great scanner. Must be used with the supplied Silverfast software. You need a lotof processing power to use thee infrared cleaning process, but it really works well. All in all, not up to the Minolta Dimage 5400( I think the scansfrom the Minolta might be a bit sharper) it replaced, but it is capable of producing professional level scans when using Silverfast

excellent results, not for high volume

By

Scanner is compact for desktop use. It's easy enough to use. I can't speak for the software provided (Silverfast), though I know it gets good reviews. I already had Vuescan installed and it works perfectly with the scanner. The provided holders can hold four slides or a strip of six negatives, but must be advanced manually, so it requires user interaction for each scan. (This is true of all consumer level slide scanners now.) I've only used it for slides. You have to make sure not to touch the holder while it's scanning -- there's a detent for each position, and it works, but it's not secure enough to hold steady if bumped. Scan results are excellent. Color is good, although as with all scans, you may need to adjust the results. Resolution is excellent. I scanned a couple of slides from my wedding reception (1972) where I had to push the resolution up to 3600dpi to get the best results. At 3600dpi, a girl's hair was much better resolved than at 2400dpi. This indicates that the scanner is able to push the limits of what the clearest 35mm slide contains and extract all the information. Scanning is going to take at least a minute per image, more likely at least two minutes, and more if you check out each one and possibly adjust it. I like the control of having my own scanner, but progress is slow. And yet for the amount of data scanned and stored, it's pretty quick, it's just that you need a lot of pixels to reproduce a good slide. Depending on how many items you have to scan and how much you value full control, you may prefer to have most of your scans done by one of the better of the mail-in services.. Or combine having a service scan the bulk and also get the scanner for those times when you want more control or need to try the scan several times. There are no scanners in the consumer price range capable of moderate to high volume scanning, as they have been pushed out by the service bureaus. So in short: I remain convinced that it's the best personal slide/negative scanner still available, and the results are excellent, but it's only suitable for low volume scanning or when the items being scanned are worth investing a good bit of time.

Use to scan old print film and slides

By

I use this scanner to archieve old family negatives and slides. I have a relatively fast computer (i7, 8gb) so I have not noticed any problems with speed. Mind you if you want good quality scans, they can take a while, but not long. I usually have quite a bit of processing going on while I scan (dust/scratch removal, etc.) It is not as fast as a flatbed paper scanner, but it is working harder. Great investment. It may take time, but I have control over the process and get better results than commercial scanners at stores.

Good deal!

By

Everything others said, the case is a real plus. One thing though I still can't figure out is why are all the pics so grainy with the scans. Versus my Canoscan 8800f, which also uses silverfast.

Questions about this item:

jaymie s  I am new to Digital camera's and am amateur. Yet I have 1000's of negatives I plan to transfer over to digital. I am willing to take the time to do this and want the quality of my negative images to be as good as developed in a dark room. Is this scanner a good start for me?
STEVEN Y  It's much better than a good start. It's probably the only film scanner you'll ever need - assuming you are talking about 35mm film. I tried several cheaper solutions before I bought mine and in the end they were a waste of money. The Plustek scanner, with the included software is simply the best I've found. But, there is a learning curve and each scan does take time so don't get in a hurry. The only "problem" I had was trying to use the IR feature on B&W film. The documentation on that is not clear, but it gives very strange results. Be sure to turn that off when scanning black & white negatives - the silver crystals reflect the infra red and you get some very odd patterns in your scans. The Plustek tech support people helped me understand that issue easily and they were great.
jaymie s  Thank you Steven! I am getting ready to purchase it in the next week or two and can't wait to get it!
Brian W  I'm interested in getting the Plustek Opticfilm 7600 scanner, since I'll be traveling around the globe, I would like to know the power input of the power adapter? If the back of the power adapter indicates 100V - 240V 50/60Hz I think I'll be able to use it everywhere.
LYNN-KAI C  yes power adapter says that. "100-240V ~ 1.0A max 50-60Hz cheers!
Brian W  Thanks for your help LYNN-KAI~
Brewster M  is this compatible with windows 7?
JAMES T W  I am a Mac user but I believe it is. Because of the many unfavorable reviews concerning Silverfast, I am using the Vuescan system for it's simplicity. If you went to their website, I'll bet you would find your specific answer.
