Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai is named as “The Best Photo Scanners” by PC Magazine for Years 2015 – 2018 in a Row

Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai film & slide scanner is named as “The Best Photo Scanners of 2018” by PC Magazine!  We are thrilled to receive this honor, because that is four years (2015 – 2018) in a row for Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai to receive this prestigious award.

You may wonder what in Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai makes it “the Best Photo Scanner” of years 2015 – 2018 in a row.  Check out this detailed openbox scanner review written by David Stone for PC Magazine.  David is an award-winning freelance writer and computer industry consultatn.  Here is a brief excerpt for our blog readers:

… The 8200i Ai offers at least two advantages over the Epson V700, with color calibration and 7,200 pixel-per-inch optical resolution, which can potentially provide more detail in scans than the 6,400ppi Epson V700, or the less expensive Editors’ Choice Epson Perfection V550 Photo Scanner, also 6,400ppi. Color calibration can potentially give scans with the 8200i Ai better color fidelity.

… the scans showed appropriate detail for the resolution and also maintained detail based on shading in both dark and light areas of the image. On one of our standard test images, with a bride being walked down the aisle, the 8200i Ai handled skin tones well, and showed both the white-on-white detail in the bridal gown and the two levels of black in the tuxedo.

… If 35mm film and slide scanning is all you need, however, and you’re willing to spend the time learning SilverFast and using it on every scan, the Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai could be a good choice. More than that, between its 7,200ppi resolution, its hardware-based dust and scratch removal, and particularly its color calibration, it may be the best choice.

The Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai film scanner offers high resolution, hardware-based dust and scratch removal, and simple color calibration for scans.
