    Plustek 8200i SE reviews

    OpticFilm 8200i SE Film Scanner is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 128.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So simple even I could use it I purchased this scanner to archive the slides and negatives of my childhood. Contrary to what the photos suggest, the 70's were't frosted in a pink hue. Our photo technology and skills just sucked (or maybe that was just my mother). Anyway, this scanner is easy to use with no real learning curve so long as you watch the introductory videos for SilverFast program first. The end product is fantastic (I chose to scan at 7200 dpi) and it's easy to adjust to the photos so that they actually look like real life. I probably spent more that I needed to for what I wanted, but this was a project that I didn't want to go cheap on.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from OpticFilm 8200i The scanner is a good example of quality German manufacturing, however I would save time by not installing the included software SilverFast. Instead purchase the VueScan Pro and install that in place of SilverFast. It is more user-friendly software with a much lower learning curve. I wasted a full day on SilverFast and never was able to produce satisfactory images from slides. With VueScan I was getting good results with both color negatives and slides within minutes and over time my results have only improved as I have become more proficient using VueScan. The plastic slide holder needs to be handled carefully as it is a little fragile as within two days one of the plastic spring covers came off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! I have scanned over 5,000 slides with this unit and it is absolutely flawless. Before buying this item, we tried several flatbed scanners for slides. The OpticFilm 8200i blew them all out of the water. The scan quality is excellent and the scanner is very easy to use. On one hand, it is slow. On the other hand, if you really care about your scans, you will want to crop, clean and adjust each image anyway so overall, it is an efficient unit. The software that comes with it may be useful for a pro but it's terrible for the average user. I got VueScan instead and it is intuitive, simple and effective. Get the OpticFilm if you really care about scanning your sides.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Scanner I've been using an Epson flatbed scanner for quite some time and found it very difficult, with the use of an adapter, to scan slides and negatives. The OpticFilm 8200i SE is an amazing improvement. It took a little while to get use to the interface, but once that was accomplished, I'm getting great results. The secondary IR scan (iSRD) makes all the difference in the world. I already own Photoshop and with the addition of Silverfast, the combination gives me a huge amount of flexibility. Just a word of caution, make sure you follow the instructions to the letter. Installing the software in the right order is a must.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Scanner Good - Silverfast Very Bad Not sure where to begin, except that the scanner seems to work as expected. The Silverfast software is complete garbage however. It DOES NOT come with a usable manual and requires learning by trial and error methodology. The Silverfast software designers don't seem care that the stuff they write requires additional software packages and 3rd party documentations - all of which cost extra - to get up to speed on use of the product. I'm not an idiot, but after spending more than 8 hours trying to get ONE good scan yesterday, I gave up in disgust, feeling completely like an idiot. I bet Microsoft would never have made it very far if their corporate goal included making their customers feeling like idiots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Great Buy for 35mm I've been using the Plustek 8200i for about a month now and it's been the best thing I've done for 35mm scanning. Tri-X has been notoriously bad about curling after drying and when used in the V600, even with the ANR glass I've tried, the glass wasn't heavy enough to hold the negative down flat. I couldn't get sharp scans with the V600 with a couple of different films. Some were better than others like FP-4. The 8300i and VueScan has been a great combination and I get much better scans than before. I opted out of using the supplied disk for SilverFast due to the bad press about it mostly and a new learning curve. I'm happy with the Plustek and VueScan and recommend it over any and all flatbed scanners for for me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely Satisfied - When Used With Vuescan Unit makes excellent 3600dpi slide scans, and the infrared dust removal is a must have. Stains, scratches, and dirt, are all well identified. Tried using Silverfast but the color reproduction on Kodachrome slides was abysmal. Purchased Vuescan and it worked substantially better. Dust removal wasn't as thorough as Silverfast, but it was still worth switching to Vuescan. Buyers should consider purchasing the extended 3 year warranty, as scanning a large amount of slides is going to take a lot longer than you thought.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Scanner Easy to set up (Windows 7) and use the basics. There is a learning curve with the software. Using Workflow Pilot is the way to start out. Using the dust and scratch removal, I run almost two minutes a slide at 1800 dpi. The dust removal seems to work VERY well - I'm very pleased. Since I'm scanning thousands of slides 30 to 40 years old, I'm not worrying about perfect color at this point, though it is mostly acceptable without adjustments. Quick scan is easy and quicker if you don't want to use all the bells and whistles (which I don't understand yet). I'm very satisfied with this scanner.
