Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai Scanner Driver. Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai is a scanner that is created specifically and only for digitizing negatives and slides. The maximum scanning resolution is 7,200 dpi and the light source of the negative or dia is LED. The LED technology has now supplanted those cold cathode because these lamps consume less, do not require heating, and generally are even more stable for color temperature. The manufacturer declares a minimum scan speed starting from 36 seconds (at 3,600 dpi) up to almost two minutes at (at 7200 dpi). The scanning area of the Plustek OpticFilm 8200i Ai is 36.8 mm x 25.4 mm. It is a highly portable scanner. It weighs just 1.6 Kg and is supplied with two accessory brackets for the loading of the dia and the negatives (to be inserted manually up to four at a time), the necessary software and a handy bag with handle. These are the dimensions 120x272x119 mm.

The scanner works both with Windows (from Win Xp) and connected to a Mac OS X 10.5, but I will see that in this second case, not all features. The version I have to test for is the best in the Plustek catalog and compared to the 8100 and 8200i SE versions, it boasts the Auto IT8 Calibration software, Expert Mode, the 16-bit Histogram function and a JobManager. Let's go into the details of the test which involves the use of the SilverFast Ai Studio 8 software, included in the package, which will guide the user step by step. As a first installation I decide to try using Plustek OpticFilm on a Mac workstation. The software is also available for Mac, but I immediately notice that the IntelliScan and QuickScan keys are not available for this platform, so I advise against choosing the scanner if you use Apple and reinstall everything on Windows. The first CD offers drivers and Presto PageManager. Given the use you can do without Presto! PageManager. The second CD contains SilverFast software. I recommend that you load drivers and install this latest software as it is, before turning on the scanner for the first time. For negatives and photos you will see that you will need to immediately rely on SilverFast and neglect the rest.
