About Me Practical, Tech Savvy
Comments about Plustek 8100 OpticFilm Scanner:
I bought this scanner to digitise a large number of 50 year old 35mm colour slides. It did the job effectively and quickly and I was very impressed with the bundled software (Silverfast SE plus 8). The PC runs Win 7 64bit, AMD Phenom II 4 core processor and 8Gb RAM. Most of the slides were damaged to some degree having been handled many times then "put away" for 35 years. The full version of Silverfast apparently has better scratch and dust removal processes and would have given a better image but the results I obtained, combined with a budget photo retouching program were acceptable for my purposes. The scanner will not be constantly in use so the included case for the scanner, cables, instruction manuals and software CD has proved very useful.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
