Plustek has released the new Plustek OpticFilm 7600i dedicated 35mm film scanner, which boasts an optical resolution of 7200x7200dpi, an infrared channel for hardware-based dust and scratch removal, and a new white LED light source for more vivid results and precise colour rendering. The Plustek OpticFilm 7600i offers 48-bit scanning, a dMax of 3.5, a fast preview time of around 8 seconds and USB 2.0 connectivity via a supplied USB cable. The scanner weighs in at just 1.6kg and comes with a carry bag and two film holders; one for film strips of up to six frames, and one for up to four mounted slides. The Plustek OpticFilm 7600i is compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista and Mac OS 10.3.9 and higher. The SE version comes bundled with SilverFast 6.6 SE Plus Multi-Exposure, while the AI variant ships with SilverFast 6.6 AI Studio IT8 Multi-Exposure and comes with a free IT8 calibration target.

The Plustek OpticFilm 7600i is already listed by some European online retailers, who quote around €270-300 for the SE version and up to €450 for the AI variant. In the U.S.A. the OpticFilm 7600i has not been released yet.

OK, don't we have enough 35mm film scanners already? Can somebody start working on a medium-format film alternative to a costly Nikon scanner?

I hope that they've got the problem with the drivers sorted on this one. I have noticed that the drivers and software are version 4.0 as opposed to version 3.1.1 for the former scanners. I've been told that the software and drivers won't be updated to version 4.0 for the former scanners. Just about to send another of their film scanners back as the hardware or drivers are conflicting and/or faulty again.
