Does this really work reliability with 10 strips ...

Does this really work reliability with 10 strips in a stack? We have thousands of images to capture. Software glitches or misfeeds will be a serious issue.
Asked by: James
On the whole it works fairly well, occasionally it may scan incorrectly but this is the best option right now for bulk scanning.

Can this scanner handle a strip of film that is only, say, two frames? Or does the film strip have to be six frames only?
Asked by: James
I have run maybe ten rolls of film worth of negatives so far and nearly every roll has at least one short strip. I am putting in say 7 strips in one stack where most are a full 6 frames and one or two are 2 frames and it has worked great for all. Never has it failed to easily pull a 2 frame strip through and scan it.

why it says only 16 bit color?
Asked by: gera
It is describing the per channel color instead of the norm of the total. Using Vuescan this scanner can capture 64 bit RAW pictures if you include the infrared channel.

Specs vs Primefilm XAs? What is the Dmax of this ...

Specs vs Primefilm XAs? What is the Dmax of this scanner? What DPI can it scan at versus the XAs. I saw that a staff member tested it 5400 dpi which is at the effective resolution of most color films and near where the XAS can scan at. Is it much different with something high quality like Tmax 100 or microfilm? Can you test effective DPI using Vuescan? Is there any way to use an It-8 target with this scanner? Will Silverfast support this?
Asked by: Kevin
The Powerfilm scanner is actually a digital camera that is taking a picture of your film. That is why it is measured as 24mp rather than dpi. A 24mp image is roughly 4000dpi if you have the image set to 1x1.5 inches (the approximate size of 35mm film). The XAS model has 10,000dpi so the quality is much higher. The XAS would be roughly equal to a 150mp image. Unfortunately Pacific Image does not provide a Dmax spec for the Powerfilm scanner and we have no way to measure it. The type of film does not change the specs of the scanner, only the quality of the image. We do not sell any scanners that can scan microfilm. Silverfast and Vuescan do not list the Powerfilm scanner as compatible with their software.

Hi, regarding Pacific Image PowerFilm Scanner (BH #PAPOWERFILM • MFR #POWER FILM) Does it have us power plug and requires 120V or it can be used outside US with 220 V power?
Asked by: Dmitry
It handles 240V also and comes with multiple plugs (I think EU included) but not an Australian one so I have to use an adapter. Not a problem
