The recently launched Plustek OpticFilm 120 multi-format film scanner will be on display at the Focus on Imaging trade show held in Birmingham from 3rd - 6th March. Capable of scanning both 35mm and 120 format negatives and slides, the Plustek OpticFilm 120 boasts a custom-designed 8-element glass lens and a high-resolution CCD sensor; and comes complete with adjustable-pitch film holders that feature unique sliding inter-frame dividers to ensure optimal film flatness. The scanner’s hardware resolution - based on the specification of its stepper motor and the number of pixels on its CCD - is 10,600dpi, with the optical resolution (which also takes into account the resolving power of the optical system) specified at 5,300dpi. Other highlights include automated IT8 calibration and a motorised film transport for batch scanning.
At the Focus on Imaging show, the OpticFilm 120 will be the main attraction of the Plustek stand (E11, Hall 9) and will be exhibited and demonstrated alongside the dedicated 35mm film scanners released in 2012. Plustek’s official UK distributor is Intro 2020.
Meanwhile, early adopters of the OpticFilm 120 scanner have started posting sample scans on Flickr.
