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.
Photographer Olli Thomson has recently bought a Plustek OpticFilm 8200i SE 35mm film scanner as part of his ongoing dive into film photography. Scanning is a critical part of his hybrid analogue-digital workflow in getting the negative into a viewable and printable form. He bought the scanner so that he can produce higher quality scans, have more control over the outcome, and save money in the long run. He wrote the scanner review at the Emulsive website and gave practical in-depth advice.
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.
