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!
I have been using the Z300 for about two weeks and, so far, it has worked extremely well. I am impressed by the speed of scanning, for the majority of my old photographs, it is more than adequate. The Z300 will have a dramatic impact on the speed of my archiving thousands of old photographs.
I was really happy to discover a high quality 120 scanner after so many manufacturers left the market. Very high quality optics, light source, carriers and overall build. The included Silverfast Ai full version is what makes this thing scream.
I have used the Plustek OpticFilm 120 for color negative, mounted slides and B&W in 35mm, 645 and 6×7 formats. The image quality at its highest resolution (5300 dpi) is superior. Scan speeds are considerably faster. The film holders are very well constructed.
It is a great little unit and there is nothing comparable for the price. I have already scanned 100 old photographs, and they all came out great. It auto crops them too, so that is pretty sweet and saves you photo editing time and effort.
Great product, nice and easy to use, easy clean install into win7 OS. No issues. Scans good, auto crops and centers photos as you scan. I found this to be the best solution for rapid scanning old archive photos after looking around for 2 months. If you want to go digital buy this scanner.
The OpticFilm 120 comes with Silverfast software. Results were very gratifying from the start scanning 645 and 35mm transparencies. The scanning procedure was straightforward, and the results were very good with accurate color.
