Good news for people who have a vast collection of 35mm negatives and slides - and wish they were in digital files.We've got the Plustek OpticFilm 8100 scanners back in stock.These are dedicated scanners for 35mm film. You get 7200 dpi resolution, high dynamic range, dust removal software, and colour restoration capability. Interestingly, you can also deal with over-saturation in older slides. Those people who used Ferrania and Anscochrome might find this useful, but in my experience most older slides lose colour rather than gain it.The scanner will preview slides in 8 seconds - it takes longer for a working scan and you can go over your material several times to get a greater dynamic range.Apparently it also has a quick-start feature that eliminates time required for warm-up.Best of all is the price - $ 425. You can make your money back doing your own digitising....
