The reflecta CrystalScan 7200 is a compact elegant film scanner for home use where it's not about large quantities. Mounted slides can be comfortably inserted individually and film strips of any length (many a more expensive film scanners can't keep up with that) can be drawn in manually image after image. Additional wearing out film holders or adaptors are not needed. The integration of the dust and scratches removal ICE, the colour restoration ROC and the grain reduction GEM is sensational for the low price of the CrystalScan 7200. Usually these are features only of more expensive film scanners.
As you can read in our detailed test report
a scan in the highes resolution takes about 8 minutes; that is a good speed compared to some other scanners, however still a long time. Additionally there is the time for the rework of the scans. If you don't have installed a good image editing program on your PC we recommend you Adobe® Photoshop® Elements for the post processing of your scans. The reflecta CrystalScan7200 provides an acceptable image quality, which can be increased using the SilverFast scan software. In our test report we come to a good price-performance-ration for the bundle with SilverFast SE Plus.
The reflecta CrystalScan 7200 is also available in a bundle with Silverfast SE / SE Plus. SilverFast is a much better scan software than CyberView and generates better image quality due to its better image processing algorithms. Thus we recommend purchasing the CrystalScan 7200 in a bundle with SilverFast SE. We also offer this scanner in a bundle with SilverFast Ai including IT-8 colour calibration. Due to the IT-8 colour calibration you can get the best image quality out of this scanner.
Please, choose above, below the price information, if you want to order the scanner with or without Adobe® Photoshop® Elements. You can find information about the different versions on our website Adobe® Photoshop® Elements Version Comparison.

When working with film strips it can often happen that you accidentally touch the emulsion side of the film. The damage often is irreparable. You can avoid damages to the film material and comfortably insert film strips into the scanner or film holder by wearing fine cotton gloves.
Anti-dust spray is used to clean film material - no matter if it's mounted slides or film strips - by removing dust and fluffs with a flimsy current of air without touching the film material at all. There is no better, more comfortable and more efficient way to clean your film material. Also, anti-dust spray is suited very well to remove dust and fluffs from the scanner to avoid image interferences (such as strips) while scanning.
For working with single negatives or positives we highly recommend using tweezers, because otherwise you run the risk of touching and damaging the film.
Those who work with digital images - no matter if they come from a digital camera or from a film scanner - should absolutely calibrate their screen. Without a screen calibration performed with objective criteria you run the risk of wrongly adjusting the settings of the scan- or image editing software, which makes the image look right on your screen, but will cause unnatural alienated colours on other output devices (printer, image service, new screen).
