Designed for fast an efficient scanning of up to 60 sequential frames,
PF 135 from reflecta is a sleek film scanner optimized for automatic
batch scanning. Compatible with 35mm strips of color negatives, color
positives or B&W negatives, this scanner can be set to automatically
digitize up to 10 strips of six frames with one command. Up to 24MP
scans can be made for the greatest quality, or a lower resolution 6MP
setting can be used for faster scanning speeds of approximately 24
seconds per scan. Operating the scanner is CyberView PF 135 software,
available as download from reflecta, which enables choosing between 8-
and 16-bit settings, selecting JPG or TIF file formats, as well as
giving control over brightness, contrast, and color settings.
Additionally, MagicTouch Technology can be used to automatically remove
dust and scratches using IR illumination, and a Multipass Xposure
setting will make three sequential scanning passes and composite the
frames to noticeably increase detail.
This scanner moves in the 35mm film strips automatically with the batch feeder on the scanner back site. When feeding the film strips into the scanner they glide directly over each other. Because of this it is absolutely neccessary that the film strips are cleaned very carefully before inserting them into the batch feeder. Suitable cleaning producs can be found in our category Cleaning. As an alternative for automatic scanning of film strips there is the reflecta RPS 10M.
Please, choose above, below the price information, if you want to order the scanner with or without Adobe® Photoshop® Elements.

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.
For working with single negatives or positives we highly recommend using tweezers, because otherwise you run the risk of touching and damaging the film.
If you work with digital images - no matter if they come from a digital camera or from a film scanner - you should calibrate your screen. Without a screen calibration performed with objective criteria you run the risk of wrongly adjusting the settings of the scan or the 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).
