    I am looking at getting a Plustek Optic Film 7200i SE Film Scanner. has any one used this before? if so how is the quality. i am looking to scan slides and film strips. and this seems to do the trick. any comments on this product would be a big help.

    how many are you planning on scanning?
    do you still shoot film on a regular basis?

    for most, I reccommend renting a high quality scanner for a weekend ($45 for the weekend in our area) and then you don't have it sitting around gathering dust most of the time

    i actually like film more than digital. i just like how the images turn out better and the black and white darkroom is pretty cool.

    personally i would spend the extra $200 and get the Nikon Coolscan. 7200dpi [for one hting is gonna be fuckin huge...and really only wort it if your scanning velvia] seems too good to be tru for that price. plus the nikon uses a nikkor lens so you know its good quality.
