Photographer Olli Thomson has recently bought a Plustek OpticFilm 8200i SE 35mm film scanner as part of his ongoing dive into film photography. Scanning is a critical part of his hybrid analogue-digital workflow in getting the negative into a viewable and printable form. He bought the scanner so that he can produce higher quality scans, have more control over the outcome, and save money in the long run. He wrote the scanner review at the Emulsive website and gave practical in-depth advice.
Do you feel it’s really difficult to edit the scan images? Can you find the exact edit function in the software? Don’t worry, we’ve prepared a series of tutorial videos to guide you through the editing software step by step. Whether you want to adjust the brightness or remove the scratches, the answer is right here.
Here’s an update to the delivery schedule and competition entry deadline for Plustek’s competition prizes “20 sets of LAB-BOX + 2 Modules (135 and 120) (value €109)”.
As per the recent notice received from the LAB-BOX creator ars-imago, they expect the shipment will be by the end of this summer.
Good things are worth waiting for. We therefore also extend the closing date for competition entries to this summer when ars-imago starts to ship.
With Plustek ePhoto Z300, Silverlab Solutions has created an easy way for customers to scan and digitize their printed photos by using kiosk systems in supermarkets, pharmacies and retail chain stores.
People can use these digital images to reprint, enlarge, or create greeting cards, collages, photo books, etc.
I am scanning the archives of a professional photographer with this scanner and I am very pleased with it. The build of the OpticFilm 120 is excellent, and it comes with every format film holder you would ever need. I am very pleased with this versatile unit.
The scan quality is great, the colours look exactly as they should be (colour tends to be off on most scanners I’ve used, this one picks it up perfectly)! It scans really quickly too, takes just a bit longer for anything 1200 dpi+.
Expert Dave Mitchell at IT Pro has published a review of SmartOffice PL4080 workgroup document scanner and gave it “IT Pro Recommened” award.
I found this Plustek ePhoto z300 scanner to be easy and quick to use. I was amazed at how I buzzed through my photos. Very satisfied. I also scanned some photos that were on cardboard and some old Polaroids and then went right through!
