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 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.
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.
This scanner does an excellent job; very simple to set up and use. I am generally very picky about my photos, but I am impressed with the results. Great way to bring the old slides back to life.
Things are working out nicely with my new equipment. My original scanner is 12 years old. It is better constructed and comes with 7 trays vs. the three I had. It runs quieter, faster and has a smaller footprint. I scan 120 film strips exclusively. All of my scans are sharp.
