Plustek OpticFilm 7200 Review at ePhotoZine

January 27, 2006 | Mark Goldstein | Scanners | Comment | |

Plustek OpticFilm 7200ePhotoZine have reviewed the Plustek OpticFilm 7200i film scanner, which incorporates SilverFast’s Infrared Smart Removal of Defects (iSRD) technology and is priced at just £199/$399.

“The scanner turns out very detailed scans from black & white film, producing a good range of tones. It does struggle to reproduce extreme tones from the darkest areas of the film because of its limited Dmax, but this problem doesn’t detract much from the overall quality of the scanned image. The iSRD function will not work with black & white film and has to be disabled. This is common for most scanners employing an infrared dust and scratch removal system, only Digital ICE 4 available on the Nikon Coolscan V has overcome this problem.”
