Thank you for your participation to the LAB-BOX competition. New entries for the competition are closed.
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.
Life is beautiful especially on Friday!
This Friday rocks especially because of our good news
on the LAB-BOX competition for you.
Those of you who have signed up to enter the LAB-BOX competition to win one of competition prizes “20 sets of LAB-BOX + 2 Modules (135 and 120) (value €109)” will be very happy to hear this news.
7200 dpi was the attraction. That said, I’m learning that scanning at that resolution isn’t always best when the negative’s granularity doesn’t match 7200 dpi. I think for most negatives 2400 is best. The kit is great and the software excellent.
Just replaced my old 7600i + SilverFast 6.6 with this 8100 + SilverFast 8. What an improvement! The new software needed some re-learning, but once success is easy to use and more flexible than the 6.6. Colour slides and negatives come out very well.
