I’ve got bad news and good news for you. Which do you want to hear first?
“For its price, the Plustek OpticFilm 8100 is a very capable desktop film scanner. 3600ppi scans are sharp and detailed, printing well up to A3 size (depending on the quality of the originals, of course). … the Multi-Exposure feature does help you eek out a bit of extra detail from your most contrasty slides. … the OpticFilm 8100 is not the ideal tool for archiving truly large film collections but if you only need to digitise a moderate amount of slides and negatives, we have no reservations recommending it to you.”

The Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai film scanner offers high resolution, hardware-based dust and scratch removal, and simple color calibration for scans.” – Quote from PCMag.com
In order to express our gratitude to the UK readers, Plustek runs the competition to give away a OpticFilm 8200i SE slide and negative scanner in Amaterur Photographer website.
Plustek OpticFilm 8200i SE is specifically designed to scan 35mm slides and negatives at resolutions up to 7,200 dots per inch (dpi). In a recent issue of Amateur Photographer, Andy Westlake, the technical editor, thoroughly reviewed the OpticFilm 8200i SE hardware and software. If you are about to digitize your collection of 35mm films, you can get informative advice about the scanner in his review.
“If you want to get into film photography or have a desire to step back into the darkroom then the OpticFilm 8200i acts as the perfect bridge between film and digital.
It’s relatively inexpensive and enables you to transfer your images with relative ease to your computer, and also offers direct upload links to your favourite social outlets.”
