I have several hundred 35mm slides from the early 70s to the late 80s plus a considerable number of colour negatives that I want to convert to digital images. Some may be printed but the vast majority will remain as digital files. I also have family photos with a few going back over 100 years but many taken in the 40s - 70s. I also want digitised images of these as I hold the only copies and would like to share them with family members. I did briefly consider an Epson V600 flatbed scanner which has received plenty of positive reviews for both tasks. But the downside is it's huge and probably not ideal for scanning slides & negatives. Photos would be fine of course. So I decided to split the project into two parts and acquire a scanner best suited for the source material. The Epson remains a possibility for prints but if anyone could recommend one with a smaller footprint I'd appreciate it. Largest photos are around 10x8 but the majority are 6x4 and a few even smaller. For scanning slides and negatives I've whittled it down to two but can't make a decision. The Reflecta ProScan is available for around £350. The alternative is the Plustek 8200iAi for £343. The Reflecta only ships with Cyberview and only from overseas whereas the Plustek ships with SilverFast SE Plus 8 on Amazon. I'd appreciate your views on which you consider better. I already own Adobe Photoshop Elements 14. Is Silverfast reasonably easy to get to grips with? I'm retired so the time to scan these is not an issue. If it takes up to 12 months that's fine. I used an Olympus OM2 with various Zuiko lenses for all these shots and film was generally 50-200 ISO so the quality is there. I just want to get the best possible images digitised so I can both share them and enjoy them on a 55" TV. Thanks!
