PrimeFilm XE

The PrimeFilm XE scanner from PIE (Pacific Image Electronics) scans 35mm slides and film strips. According to the manufacturer it achieves up to 10,000dpi. The Dynamic Range of the scanner is specified with 3.9. Thus, the scanner achieves very good values, at least on the data sheet, which are sufficient for scans of very high quality. In practice however, the actual Dynamic Range should be well below 3.9 and SilverFast Multi-Exposure should be used. This Multi-Exposure funtionality, included with SilverFast SE Plus and Ai Studio as well as the Archive Suite, significantly increases the Dynamic Range and also reduces occurring image noise very effectively.

Slide and filmstrip holders are included. These are plastic holders, in which up to four slides or a filmstrip with up to 6 images can be inserted. The framing of the slides can be made of plastic, cardboard or glass, but should not be thicker than 3mm. Feeding the holders has to be done manually.

The scanner comes with SilverFast SE, which you can unlock for free on our website. To better utilize the full potential of your scanner, we recommend a discounted upgrade to SilverFast SE Plus, Ai Studio or the Archive Suite.
