There are not many options for scanners to quickly reduce the number of stored photographs and photograph albums. Having reviewed the options I settled on the Plustek ePhoto Z300 and I am pleased that I did. Setup was easy. I have a flatbed scanner but chose this for speed and ease of use for scanning many photos and it is a good choice. I have also scanned documents with it. They are also quick and with good results. In short an excellent scanner for the price to do exactly the job that I wanted it to complete.
I’m so glad I bought this scanner. I have so far scanned about 150 films so that’s heading towards 5000 scans and this scanner had been working just fine. Don’t waste money on a cheap scanner; you only want to do this once so spend the extra and do the job properly! Get a decent scanner like this one!
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.
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.
