Plustek OpticFilm 8100

★★★★★ 2.5
Verdict: The Plustek OpticFilm 8100 ($349) is Plustek's least expensive dedicated film and slide scanner . It's also the only one without hardware-based dust and scratch removal, offering a less robust, but still welcome, software-only version instead.
Pros: 
  • Rated at 7,200 pixels-per-inch (ppi) optical resolution
  • Comes with SilverFast SE Plus 8, a sophisticated scan utility
Cons: 
  • Scans only one slide or frame of film at a time
  • Little to no automation in software
  • No hardware-based dust and scratch removal

Test review Plustek Filmscanner OpticFilm 8100

★★★★★
Verdict: Two and a half years after release of the Plustek OpticFilm 7400 a follower by the name of OpticFilm 8100 was placed on the market in February 2012. With this the 7th series, which formerly started with an OpticFilm 7200, then was replaced by the OpticFilm 7300 and finally ended at the OpticFilm...

Best at 7200dpi

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: This scanner has wonderful resolution at full power, however it will yield a bit of an unsavory file size (100+ mb's at least) so it's best to resize to a workable level in a photoshop program of your choice.

Plustek OpticFilm 8100

★★★★ 1.0
Verdict: I was creating a corporate video for a 90th anniversary. The owner of the company found about 300 slides from the late 50's to the mid 70's which were unknown and never seen. We had less than a week to get them into the presentation.

Great !

★★★★ 4.0
Verdict: Very good scanner. It's quite hard to beat quality. I've been also using Flextight and quality is a bit better of course but most of cases plustek will do the job. Much much better than flat bed skanners. Wish to have medium format plustek in a bit better price.

A great scanner at a bargain price

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: I've just finished digitizing some of my daughter's wedding photos on color negative film. The results are really great, and since I did them at maximum resolution loo really good at 16 X 22 inch prints. The film is really clean having been kept in the processor sleeves.

Top notch scanner

★★★★ 1.0
Verdict: My husband has purchased other slide / negative scanners in the past and found them to be low quality and unsatisfactory. However, he is 100% satisfied with the Plustek OpticFilm 8100 scanner.

Very good quality

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: No IR dust reduction. $100 less than the next model up. Perfect for B&W negatives than cannot benefit from IR dust reduction. Be aware that if you want to do Kodachrome with any scanner, you really need a Kodachrome calibration slide, which is extra.
Pros: 
  • Very good quality
  • Pretty good price
Cons: 
  • This scanner has many
  • many controls if you are not inclined to use them get a scanner that is more automatic

Excellent scanner - eventually.

★★★★★ 5.0
Verdict: I am seventy-one and I wanted to scan a lot of negatives (BW and Colour) and slides (BW and Colour) which I had taken in the sixties and seventies, mostly buildings and cityscapes, many of which I could not have afforded to have printed at the time.
Pros: 
  • Easy To Use
  • Fast
  • Powerful

Plustek OpticFilm 8100 Review

★★★★★ 2.5
Verdict: The Plustek OpticFilm 8100 film scanner delivers reasonably high-quality scans, but it lacks hardware-based dust and scratch removal and requires some effort to get good scans.
The Plustek OpticFilm 8100 ($349) is Plustek's least expensive dedicated film and slide scanner. It's also the only one without hardware-based dust and scratch removal, offering a less robust, but still welcome, software-only version instead. Unfortunately, the lack of this feature is somewhat inconsistent with the professional-level, hard-to-master scan utility the 8100($349.00 at Amazon) comes with. Those two factors together keep the scanner from being a terrific fit either for casual photographers, who want easy scanning, or professionals and serious amateurs, who insist on the best scans possible. If you're willing to put in the effort to learn the software, as well as the effort to manually adjust the settings for every scan, the 8100 can deliver reasonably high-quality results with most originals. As you might expect, its scan quality is significantly better than you'll get with less expensive models, like the VuPoint Solutions Digital Film and Slide Converter FC-C520-VPD,...
Pros: 
  • Rated at 7,200 pixels-per-inch (ppi) optical resolution
  • Comes with SilverFast SE Plus 8, a sophisticated scan utility
Cons: 
  • Scans only one slide or frame of film at a time
