Plustek Halts Shipments of OpticFilm 120

Plustek USA says it has "decided to temporarily stop shipping" its OpticFilm 120 multi-format desktop film scanner due to a component issue. "Recently we discovered a component used in the manufacture of the OpticFilm 120 does not meet our quality standards," the company said in a statement, adding that they are working with a third-party supplier to "identify a permanent resolution to this problem." Plustek would not elaborate further on the nature of the issue or the component being involved, but some early adopters have reported certain problems apparently caused by a mis-alignment between the scanner optics and the film plane (the Plustek OpticFilm 120 has a fixed-focus lens). It is not clear whether the temporary halt in shipments is related to this issue. Plustek says it does not "expect this delay to be extensive," but it has declined to provide "a firm date when shipment will resume." Meanwhile, B&H has reportedly sent a note to prospective customers saying the scanner is "discontinued," which evidently isn't the case - but the OpticFilm 120 can no longer be found in its online store. Meanwhile, the scanner continues to be available from a number of UK retailers.
