I just found this thread. I have been shooting film since the middle 1960s. I still do, but less and less frequently. That is primarily because I am afraid to get a scanner. I have considered the PLUSTEK 7400. Any opinions? I really need a decent scanner just to digitize my rare and occasional shot that is worth keeping. I use generic CVS films. Or Kodak whatever when it is on sale. I just like the thrill of dropping off film and picking up prints. It is a magical to me today as it was when I started with a Brownie Hawkeye Flash almost 50 years ago.

Oh, my film bodies are ELAN 7NE, and a Yashica FX-2, and a Yashica FX-3 Super 2000. I have some really good glass for the Yashicas. Run of the mill glass for the 7NE, with the exception of the Canon 100-400L.

Welcome,
I have no experience with the Plustek. I scan all of my film with an Epson V700 and the results are good enough for me. Your decision should be based on what film sizes you need to scan and want to scan in the future. The Plustek is a 35mm only scanner. The V700 will scan 35mm up to 8x10. It may also be a question of time. The Plustek can only scan 6 35mm negs at a time and the V700 can scan 24.

There's a guy by me who is trying to sell me his HP SCSI scanner / Mac setup for $1000. If I hadn't already scanned all of my negatives I might have jumped on it. It's a pretty nice setup.

The V700 is WAY too much money. Photography is just a hobby to me. I just want a scanner that can digitize the occasional film shot worth keeping/editing. Maybe $200-$250. So 35mm and a few frames per scan would be fine. Perhaps I should consider going all digital? Film is FUN, though.

I have the Plustek 7600, works good for me...

I don't think the 7400 has digital ICE, so I would stay away from it. Can you swing the 7600? It's supposed to be a very good 35mm scanner. I use a Nikon Coolscan LS-40 IV that I found for $50. Got lucky on that one.

Oh, my film bodies are ... Yashica FX-3 Super 2000. I have some really good glass for the Yashicas.

Yashica was really underrated as a camera company. I love my MAT-124G TLR and GTN rangefinder; they both have superb optics. I may pick up a FX-3 Super 2000 to complement my Contax 159MM. While I have an affinity for my Canon FD cameras, the 159MM is just about the perfect 35mm SLR for me.

You still cannot get the dynamic range or sizes with digital that film provides.


"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.

Yes, I have been leaning towards the 7600 Plustek.

I have some really good C/Y glass made by Vivitar. The SERIES ONE 28-105, and the 70-210 f/3.5. A few of my C/Y lenses are the nicer ML/MC versions. Most are DSB or YUS, of lesser quality. For what I do, it doesn't make much difference. I have two FX-3 Super 2000 bodies. One has a shutter-sticking problem when it goes below about 50 degrees F. I love that camera; with my 50mm C lens it is very tiny. Plus it uses currently available batteries. Nice.

Most people are unaware that some Yashica bodies came out of the same factory as some of the Contax bodies. Same production line, although I can't remember which models. Ditto Carl Zeiss glass with some of the Yashica lenses. If you ever see a Yashica lens with the word 'Yashica' printed on it twice (on the objective end plate), that is a Carl Zeiss lens, branded Yashica.

I am constantly fishing E-bay for this kind of stuff. Currently watching about 5 bodies and 2 or 3 lenses. Most of it is WAY overpriced. I did get a near perfect (some grit in viewfinder) FX-3 Super 2000 last year for $14.99 + shipping. New light-seals and everything. Bargains may still be had. Although with the recent resurgence of film, prices are rising.

I can't comment on the 7400, but I used to use a 7500i. It was great for black and white, but I was very disappointed with it for color - it had a really hard time with the shadows when scanning slides, I always had a hard time getting good colors when scanning negatives, and in both cases I ran into banding problems fairly frequently. I personally wouldn't buy another plustek product unless I were only scanning black and white.

Just my $.02

I got this shot back, and I loved it. But I didn't like the blank sky, so I tried to photoshop some clouds in. Yay or nay?
