New Addition to the Digital Design Studio Family!
The Digital Design Studio recently received a brand new film scanner for the public to use.
The scanner is called the Plustek OpticFilm 7600i SE. It’s a great device, with the capability of capturing both 35mm film and slides with a great deal of resolution. The scanner has performed very well for us, with regards to both speed and quality.
The OpticFilm 7600i SE is bundled with SilverFast SEPlus, which is targeted to photographers, and adds enhanced imaging features for complete control over the final image. All the imaging parameters of SilverFast can be adjusted individually to meet your requirements.
The OpticFilm 7600i SE hardware includes built-in ICC profile to ensure the accuracy of color reproduction. Image editing software can be a great tool; however, it can not bring back what the scanner doesn’t see. Color calibration with ICC profile and the IT8 Target ensures you to have the full control of the imaging process.
Some Hardware specifications for the OpticFilm 7600 are the following:
- Optical resolution: 7200x7200 dpi
- Bit Depth: 48-bit color (16-bit channels) and 16-bit grayscale
- Sampling: Multi-sampling capable
- Infrared Scanning: Yes (for dust and scratch removal)
- Scanning Speed: Previews in 7.57 seconds (slides), 8.01 seconds (negatives); 3600-dpi multi-sampled scans in 32.14 seconds, 7200-dpi multi-sampled scans in 56.82 seconds

In addition, for someone who has never used the film scanner, made available are Built-in QuickTime tutorial videos to guide and assist the user. If you’re still stuck, the full user manual is ready to read in PDF format.
