I bought this scanner because I wanted to digitize over one thousand old family photos. This scanner is just what I needed. It scans each photo in about two seconds and is very easy to learn how to use. It scans to jpg or pdf so it can also be used for documents.
Scanned over 1000 pictures from recent pictures to 60 year old black and white and very very pleased with the quality. Unit is fast, two seconds a picture and not one picture jammed.
I have scanned well over a thousand photos and it works perfectly. It straightens the ones I fed in a bit crooked, it is fast and produces a very good picture. This model is a great tool for cleaning out those shoeboxes of photos. I like the auto feed method too.
Thrilled so far with this affordable large-format scanner. I paint watercolor designs (mostly botanical and with detailed shading and colors) as well as illustrate with markers in black/white as well as colored markers (like Copic for manga and other types of illustrations). I needed to find a scanner large enough to scan my 12″x12″ paintings and illustrations. I decided I had to give this scanner a try because it is the only one I can possibly afford.
The scans I’m getting from the Plustek Opticfilm 120 are sharper, and the SilverFast Ai Studio 8 driver is working very well. The film holders are nicely made, easy to load, and seem to keep the film nice and flat, and scan speed is much faster.
The initial results with this scanner, testing a wide range of images in a variety of materials, some images as old as 45 years, indicate that it is a superlative instrument. It’s a pleasure to use and produces results better than any in my experience in my own studio.
This was a great buy, it’s sorted many photos from the 80’s and 90’s for myself, my father in law and Grandmother. It genuinely scans a photo every 2 seconds and shoots them out into a folder on your PC or laptop. Colours are accurate, deep and rich.
