    I have a couple of questions. First off, the negative you scanned was scratched, does the scanner come with any software that helps with this? Also, what does the image look like full size, it’s hard to tell the quality when it’s so small. Secondly do you have experience with other film scanners, I’m curious how this one compares to others in this price range, especially the Dimage Dual IV.

    Thanks,
    John

  • This particular scanner did not come with any scratch removal abilities. There is a new version of the scanner out now called the OpticFilm 7200i. It includes a new feature called Infrared Smart Removal of Defect. Here is a quote from their website “The newly introduced iSRD (Infrared Smart Removal of Defect) feature provides productive defect removing solutions, eliminates dust and scratch automatically.”

    About the image sizes, feel free to click on any of the images for a larger view.

    I don’t have any experience with any other dedicated slide scanners.

    Thanks for the info, I’ll look into the new version. Obviously they can be cleaned up in Photoshop but if the you can do it when scanning it’s so much easier.

    By full size I mean something along the lines of 2-3 times as large as the ones posted. I guess I’m just used to large files, probably not practical for the web.Again thanks, I’ll look inot things and of course will post my comments about whatever version of film scanner I get.

    I was just reading a review of another scanner that said the Silverfast program contains both a dust remover and scratch fixer. If you still have it installed could you check on that for me- seems silly to sell software with a scanner that doesn’t st least remove dust since it’s almost impossible to keep off negaitives. Many thanks- the doubled price tag of the 7200i makes it less appealing, especialy if this one does have the features i’d expect.

  • I don’t have the software anymore, but I checked the plustek website and looked at the software that comes with the scanner. It lists SilverFast 6 SE and has this item “SRD Dust & Scratch Removal.” It does indeed look like it can remove dust and scratches with software.
