About Me Tech Savvy
Comments about Plustek 8200i Ai OpticFilm Scanner:
I used for scanning my monochrome negatives to assess for traditional printing and for digital printing on a Mac using Lightroom / photoshop and latest OS.Updating the software was straightforward but I had to search for specific scanning modes and settings in order to get an image that was not affected by errors (strange shapes appeared on images and diagonal lines developed large pixel shapes).The latter destroyed the practicality and enjoyment of using a new piece of kit. The spec is promising but the setup was frustrating - however the images I did manage to get were fine. It just took a frustrating amount of time and effort as the website support was less than helpful.Recommended to a friend but offer to phone one included!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
