Product: OpticFilm 8200i AI Film Scanner
I unboxed the Plustek OpticFilm 8200i and had the basic software installed in 5 minutes. I didn’t bother with the bundled SilverFast software. Ten minutes of reading and playing around with settings and I was away scanning old 35 mm slides and negatives with excellent resolution. The 2400 dpi setting (24 bit colour) gave me 1MB jpg files that were more than enough for my needs. The device will scan up to 7200 dpi and 48 bit colour but the files are over 100MB and my original photos aren’t sharp enough to be any benefit. The colour reproduction is excellent. Build quality is robust and sleek. It all fits neatly into the provided canvas bag.
