Film & Microfilm Scanning
Many flatbed scanners have the ability to scan film and negatives, but some are more able than others. We have selected a range of flatbed machines, which are commonly purchased by our customers, for this purpose. In addition, the Plustek OpticFilm 8200i is a 35mm film-slide specific scanner and is a perfect fit for professional photographers.
These scanners are perfect for the scanning of photos in 35mm form.
What is a Microfilm?
A microfilm is a type of storage where the original copy is printed to a much smaller version (usually 1/25th). A microfilm is literally a photographic copy of the original matter which has been recorded and different in nature to a compact disc, digital versatile disc or a blu-ray. A microfilm does not need software to be opened or read and as such has many benefits in particular to libraries or the legal industry to protect legal documents.
