From Film to Computer

OpticFilm_7600i_Ai_close_up_(by_Plustek)[1] What with the costs of buying and developing 35mm film, it may be an endangered species. But, it’s not dead yet, and many schools that still use film cameras for everything from documenting field trips and art classes. But, what to do with those boxes and drawers of negatives and slides from years gone by. All this film can be digitized with a nifty scanner from Plustek. The OpticFilm 7600i family of film scanners can turn slides or negatives into beautiful digital images. With 7,200 by 7,200 dot-per-inch resolution, both the OpticFilm 7600i Ai and Se scanners produce rich and sharp 48-bit color, come with a good variety of imaging software and connect to a PC or Mac via a USB cable. While the 7600i SE sells for $369, the high-end 7600i Ai is priced at $589.
