Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Plustek OpticFilm8200iAi Film Scanner (Accessory)
With some trepidation, I ordered the scanner. It arrived within 24 hours and I set about installing the Silverfast software - and it couldn't see the scanner! After several attempts, I contacted the Silverfast suport service and received a very speedy reply - only a single Imaging Device is allowable (simply fixed via Device Manager). Since then, the scanner has performed flawlessly. Others have criticised the Silverfast software but, with a little practice it is very easy to use (start with the automatic setting (Workflow Pilot) until you see how all the various tools work). And each tool has an associated video to assist too. The various sliders are a bit sluggish, though (on an i7 laptop), so I suspect that a fairly powerful computer is required to avoid frustration.
I have now scanned a couple of hundred negatives and slides and am delighted with the results. The infrared scan does an excellent job in erasing dust and other defects.
