Choosing the Right Scanner for Your Collection of Films And Slides
“Life is like a camera.
Focus on what’s important.
Capture the good times. And if things don’t work out, just take another shot.”
– by Ziad K. Abdelnour from “Economic Warfare: Secrets of Wealth Creation in the Age of Welfare Politics”.
“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.”
