The Plustek OpticFilm 7400 Scanner is a dedicated 3600 dpi film and mounted slide scanner delivering better quality images, higher efficiency and power saving than the earlier 7300 model. With an improved white LED light source, the OpticFilm 7400 scans at 48-bit color for accurate and vibrant color images.

To minimize noise, the multi-sampling function makes 4 scan passes that are averaged together so image noise is cancelled out. It has a multi-exposure function that is utilized with negative film to provide improved shadow and highlight detail and delivers images with richness and depth that makes your pictures look as if they are three dimensional.

The 7400 comes with the very powerful SilverFastSE Plus (Multi-Exposure) software with scanning tools, editing, and color reproduction functions. This software is bundled with NewSoft Presto! Page Manager 7.1 for OCR, PDF creation, or format conversion to Word or Excel. It also comes with NewSoft Presto! ImageFolio 4.5, a comprehensive multimedia image-processing program for image fine-tuning.

OpticFilm 7400's performance and powerful software package make it a great solution for photographers at all experience levels.

By pushing the Quickscan button, the device launches the scan without manipulation to the image, such as dust and scratch removal. This is the faster of the two scanning methods. When you push the IntelliScan button, the included SilverFast software is launched so you can make the optimal adjustments to the image. In this mode scanning takes more time, but once you master the software it becomes worth the wait.
It provides enhanced versatility with the Multi-Exposure function on negative film.
It features a USB 2.0 connection, up to four times faster than standard USB 1.1 transfer speed.
Two film holders are provided. One is for holding up to four mounted slides. The other is for holding a filmstrip, up to six frames.

The holders are designed to keep your originals well protected. There is no physical contact with the originals during the scanning process.

The included padded carrying bag is specially designed for the film scanner. Its main compartment accommodates the scanner, film holders, power adapter and USB cord. The case comes with an easy-to-grip handle for hand carry, and features a pocket with a touch fastener to house film holders.
