The OpticFilm 8200i Ai Film Scanner from Plustek converts all your 35mm negatives and mounted slides into digital files you can edit and view on the computer.

Additionally, the included IT 8 calibration slide ensures accurate color results the first time, reducing the need for repeated scans or extensive post processing color correction.

The included SilverFast 8 works together with the scanner to improve your workflow and ensure proper results the first time.

I am currently running and Epson V800 using ...

I am currently running and Epson V800 using SilverFast Ai 8.8 on an iMac. I’m interested in getting the Plustek 8200i Ai to handle my 35mm film scans using the supplied SilverFast software. My question is will I have any concerns when installing and using the software since I already have it installed on my Imac. My goal is to be able to easily run both scanners (not consecutively) from the same interface.
Asked by: Anonymous
Hardware wise there is no issue. Sometimes the software supplied with a device will work only with that hardware. Other than that I would not expect any issues.

I see that the product descriptions for the Plustek 8200i Ai refers to the inclusion of Silverfast 8. I see an answer to a question that Silverfast is a free upgrade. Presumably the package only includes the Silverfast 8. How does the upgrade work in practice?
Asked by: Ross
All paid upgrades are done via silverfast website. In order to upgrade please review the following link.
