Press release: Plustek appoints Jessops for UK sales

Shooping Lin, sales director at Plustek, said: “Plustek is one of the world’s leading scanner manufacturers and one of our key objectives is to target the UK photography market. The appointment of a strong vendor such as Jessops will help us to raise our profile in this market and make our products readily available to target consumers.”

Carl Smith, printer/scanner product manager at Jessops, commented: ‘The Plustek film scanner fits in well with our product range. We recognise that many of our customers still own film negatives and would like to convert them into digital files. By using the OpticFilm 7200i they will be able to achieve this easily and effectively.”

OpticFilm 7200i – targeted at consumers who want to update their film to a digital format, the OpticFilm 7200 is a film scanner capable of scanning 35mm slides and negatives. It includes iSRD, (Infrared Smart Removal of Defect), for eliminating defects, high optical 7200dpi resolution, USB 2.0 connection and fast scan speed. Plustek’s OpticFilm 7200 easily outperforms other professional film scanners and is priced at £149.99 including VAT.

Quote:...easily outperforms other professional film scanners...


That sounds a mighty big claim!

On what basis though? Resolution? Speed? Quality of output? Dynamic range?

Just Google'd for reviews - makes interesting reading Wink

Dynamic range isn't that brilliant from what I've read.

Why don't these people use it and THEN comment. I have one and it works just fine.

I'm using one of these now and I have to agree that the people knocking the Plustek can't have used one. It's much quicker than my old Minolta Scan Dual and gives higher definition scans. Also, it comes with a very neat carrying bag that makes it easy to take with you if staying away, or just keeps everything tidy for storage.
