This competitive upgrade offer has ended and is no longer available.

We think most SilverFast users will prefer VueScan because:

  • VueScan is easier to use
  • VueScan produces better scans
  • Infrared cleaning in VueScan is better, especially with Kodachrome
  • You can use one copy of VueScan with up to 4 different computers
  • You can use one copy of VueScan with all your scanners
  • You get unlimited free upgrades (forever) with the Professional Edition
  • VueScan supports 1850 scanners, SilverFast 8 supports 20 scanners
  • VueScan is a 5 MByte download, SilverFast 8 is a 170 MByte download

Also, Hamrick Software has has always been open and honest with our customers. Some examples:

  1. On January 16, 2006 Hamrick Software announced that VueScan supports the Intel Macs. Of course, VueScan really was a Universal Binary and worked well on Intel Macs.

  2. On October 30, 2007 LaserSoft announced that Outstanding Results With SilverFast! Now Running Universal. The only problem is that this wasn't true - SilverFast 6 never was updated to be a Universal Binary, only one small program, the "Launcher", was a Universal Binary. This is the reason SilverFast 6 doesn't work on Mac OS X Lion today - it was never updated from PowerPC to Intel.

  3. On March 10, 2011 Hamrick Software announced that VueScan adds support for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. Of course, every version of VueScan since this announcement works well on Mac OS X 10.7 Lion.

  4. On March 12, 2011 (two days later) LaserSoft announced that SilverFast Supports Mac OS X 10.7 Lion The only problem is that this was misleading - SilverFast 6 doesn't work with Mac OS X 10.7 Lion and most customers need to pay up to $200 to upgrade to SilverFast 8.

We believe in being open and honest with our customers, and hope we've earned the trust of our customers. We also believe in always having a technically superior product.

Ed Hamrick

One of my favorite German sayings is "Der Fisch stinkt vom Kopf" (The fish stinks from the head). The fate of LaserSoft is largely due to the product strategy of their president, Karl-Heinz Zahorsky.

The strategy for SilverFast has been to make expensive software for expensive scanners and make the majority of revenues from bundling this software with scanners.

Unfortunately, scanner technology reached it's peak 5 years ago. There's seldom any need for reflective scans higher than 600 dpi, and the best film scanners ever made were released by Nikon 8 years ago (CoolScan 5000 and CoolScan V).

95% of all scanners sold today are multi-function printer/scanner/copiers, most notably from Canon, Epson and HP. Nikon stopped making film scanners years ago, and now you can only buy used Nikon scanners on ebay. No other high-quality film scanners are sold any more because the market for film scanners is rapidly shrinking.

Anyone who primarly does reflective scans can buy a good printer/scanner/copier for $100, and anyone still scanning film can use the Epson V700 to do this. The problem LaserSoft has is that they don't support any printer/scanner/copiers and nobody needs SilverFast with Epson scanners (Epson Scan is actually better).

This leads to a dilemma - the market for the scanners SilverFast supports is shrinking rapidly, and even the least expensive printer/scanner/copiers are more than good enough for 99% of reflective scanning. What can LaserSoft do, other than try to reduce costs by laying off engineers and delay new product development? It's been 5 years since Intel Macs were introduced, and LaserSoft only recently released a universal binary version of SilverFast.

The majority of LaserSoft revenues used to come from bundled software sales, but Nikon doesn't make scanners any more, Microtek went out of business, Minolta went out of business, Epson Scan is better than SilverFast, Canon sells many more printer/scanner/copiers than high-end flatbed scanners, and Plustek and Reflecta aren't widely sold.

In addition, the SilverFast product pricing isn't competitive. There are two approaches - low cost and high volume or high cost and low volume. LaserSoft has chosen the latter, but high cost doesn't work when good reflective scanners cost $100 and film scanning can be done better with VueScan or Epson Scan.

LaserSoft has also annoyed their users for years, waiting 5 years to release a Universal Binary version on the Mac, poor support for Windows x64, high prices, needing to buy another copy of SilverFast for each scanner, and generally not listening to their users.

What can LaserSoft do to survive? They don't ask for my advice, and free advice is worth what you pay for it. :)

However, Hamrick Software's strategy is to focus on making high-quality software that's easy to use and that adds value over the free software that comes with most scanners today. We're also committed to keeping our prices low and expanding into new markets (printer/scanner/copiers and iPhone and iPad).

We also think our development strategy is superior to LaserSoft's, since we do frequent, incremental product improvements - and have 4000 people test these improved versions every day. This leads to higher product quality than SilverFast, which only has significant new releases every 5 years or so.

In the end, the success or failure of a company is determined by product strategy and product quality. We're happy with the product strategy for VueScan and the quality of VueScan, and we hope more and more SilverFast users will agree.

Ed Hamrick

enough of epson scan and silverfast!
Epson driver won't work with Leopard; neither does Silverfast which uses the Epson driver. 
Epson driver-rubbish; silverfast will not do 16bit and not paying for that; going to use more MF film instead of pure digital.
Epson drivers don't work; wanted good control; originally had Silverfast; but upgrade too expensive
Epson Scan software corrupted and I HATE Silverfast
Epson Scan; Silverfast SE limited
Epson software broke; Can't figure how to select batch negatives on Silverfast SE
Epson software quit working and I can't fix it. Also Silverfast lousy with color negs.
EpsonScan is too basic; Silverfast has an attrocious UI
excellent default scans with B/W negs vs/silverfast+minolta; color neg profiles nice
Exceptional results with trial version; very fast; very intuitive interface (a great difference with Silverfast; by example)
Far better results than bundled silverfast software!

Have Silverfast always wanted Vuescan but didn't support X6 until recently
Have Silverfast want to try yours
Have Silverfast; doesn't work and is too complicated and not understandable.
having problems with SilverFast
Heard it is better than SilverFast SE
heard it's better than Silverfast
heard quality and ease of use were high. dissatisfied with epson and silverfast software
High quality scans; OS X Leopard compatible; Silverfast too expensive
Highly recommended by people online to replace the very confusing SilverFast for my Plustek OpticFilm 7200 scanner. 
"honestly; because the SilverFast demo kept ""not responding""... Some things I like in VueScan; others I prefer in SilverFast... "
Hoping it is simliar to use than SilverFast
I am getting equivalent results with silverfast from 120 slide film; but didn't need to use 2 non-intel binaries to do it.  And your software is less expensive.  Also; using twain is not important to me -- but my mini can barely handle these 500MB files so this may change if I get a new computer.
I bought Silverfast and found it to be an extremely shoddy piece of software. I should have listened and bought Vuescan to begin with.

I like it better than Silverfast
I like the features better than Silverfast
I like the features; price and the free upgrades on the Pro license. I also like the ability to use it on different scanners compared to Silverfast.
I like the results (ancient family kodakchromes came up vivid and sparkling with life; and clean with IR ; far superior to silverfast and epson scan with ) and the ui (compared to silverfast; whose ui & workflow is laughable)
I like the trial; want to try out the pro-version. Have Silverfast Ai and I think it's really bad on the Mac.
I like your product more than SilverFast...
I need new software for this scanner which has not been used for years as I still have a lot of slides and negatives. I tried Silverfast; but was unable to make it work on my iMac as I was unable to install the Minolta drivers. Vuescan worked at the first try.
I need to digitalize old photos of paintings of my husband (painter Lubo Kristek). I compared VueScan; SilverFast and Epson Scan and you are the best.
I need vuescan to run the scanner at all. Plus vuescan has a clear user interface and a much lower price for this particular scanner than for instance silverfast.
I prefer it to Silverfast software
I read that VueScan is better than Silverfast
i think it is better then Nikon SW and cheaper then SilverFast
I tried Silverfast/to many problems/yours seem much more stable with nice features
I upgraded to Windows 7- bundled Silverfast will no longer work
I used the free trial of both Vue scan and Silverfast but prefered Vuescan because it was easier to use and had excellent color fidelity and color balance.
I was primarily looking for software to create a scanner profile from an IT8 target; but was additionally impressed that this works on Mac OS X 10.6 (unlike Nikon Scan which crashes); has a well-organized interface (unlike SilverFast); and I'm very impressed with how well it controls the scanner hardware..
ICE on silverfast corrupts images
Ich möchte den Scanner mit 64-Bit Betriebssystemen (XP; Win7 and/or Linux) nutzen; ausserdem: Evtl. werde ich mit 64-Bit Betriebssystem und Minolta original Scanprogramm und/oder Silverfast/HDI arbeiten.
I'm scanning my old Agfa caving photography but bundled Silverfast SE not delivering acceptable colour fix.  Dark backgrounds remain purple.  I'm hoping Vuescan will help.  If you have any suggestions; I would be most grateful.  Regards; Tim Carter

It works! Unlike Silverfast.
It works. Silverfast doesn't
IT8 Calibration; cheaper than Silverfast
IT8 profiling; better results than SilverFast
IT8; Silverfast shows extremly strong grain for Konica negative film (even with active GEM); vuescan is superior for this use case. And; of course; providing a linux version is a *BIG* plus!
It's better than Silverfast SE and allows for multi-pass scanning (Silverfast SE doesn't on my scanner)
It's more userfriendly than SilverFast
I'ts supposed to be easier to use than SilverFast.
Just so much better then Silverfast.

Silverfast overpriced; poor UI; not compatible with newer OSes and Photoshop versions. Vuescan highly recommended by many. Love that you recommend Wolf Faust's IT8 targets - consider recommending Argyll CMS too. If this works out will buy 2xpro edition for the Epson 1680s here too.

Software delivered with scanner does not work (SilverFast). Constantly crashes my maschine. Fed up; don't want to spend anymore time trying; like VueScan.
Speed and quality of scan. Multi-sample works better than Silverfast
Stuck with SilverFast SE
Superior results scanning negatives (vs. Silverfast)

Supplied Silverfast is rubbish

Support is better than Silverfast
Supports many scanners; Silverfast has greedy upgrade and cross-grade pricing.
switch to osx; prior used Silverfast; upgrading from old version is expensive; compared both SF and VS. Impressed by VS. 1 prog for 3 Linux; Win and OSX. Enthusiastic about the batch scanning capabilities. Did not like the study I had to do from all the differen SF versions. Tested very well and found no problems in dark areas; according to some reviews this is/ was a problem of VS.
Switching from Silverfast
Switching from Silverfast

Tested against Nikon and Silverfast and preferred results
testing software (+drum +imacon +silverfast)
tests better than silverfast
The alternative is Silverfast :-|
The included Silverfast is way too complicated
The much better frame splitting than in Silverfast
The Nikon Scan software does not detect the scanner more than half the time; and your product seemed interesting and less expensive than Lasersoft Silverfast ai
The Silverfast driver is inconsistent;  i.e.;  lots of scanner not connected error messages
The Silverfast SW is NOT user friendly and people who bought this scanner on Amazon recommended this SW as a fix.
The software supplied with the scanner; Silverfast Si; is not supported by Vista 64. Also; Vuescan has the reputation for producing the best scans. I'll be doing post processing in PhotoShop CS3 and don't need the image adjustment features in Silverfast

Total exasperation with Silverfast
Trial convinced me that scan output Vuescan is much better than Silverfast/Scangear
trial is much easier to use than the silverfast that came with my scanner
Trial version actually works without crashing on Lion unlike SilverFast 8
tried demo and get better results than Silverfast
Tried Nikon Scan/SilverFast. VueScan is the best to date.
tried NkScan; SilverFast & VueScan - VueScan best
Tried Silverfast before....
Tried Silverfast but yours is simpler and better
Tried to use the steam pile of garbage called silverfast that came with scanner. Your demo worked with zero pain. No wacky installer. No CD based copy protection. Joy was felt by all.
trouble with Silverfast Ai
trouble with silverfast se
true multiscan not available from silverfast for i900; like the raw output feature
try it out and compare to Silverfast
Try this instead of Silverfast
UI of Silverfast is not the yellow of the egg. ;-)
UMAX Astra Net e5470 no longer supported under OS X; nor does SilverFast -- switching back to OS 9.2.2 to scan an image has become too much of a hassle. VueScan appears to work -- and I'm tired of trying to edit out those little dollar signs ;-)
Unhappy w/ Silverfast
"unhappy with bundled software (clipping of bw neg scans); don't like Silverfast interface & price; need IR files to clean old BW negs in Photoshop (your built-in ""cleaner"" doesn't work well btw) "
unhappy with Silverfast
Unhappy with Silverfast
Unhappy with Silverfast; need better features than packaged software that came with scanner.  Have tested demo version and like results.
upgrade to silverfast stopped it working!!
usability; better quality and speed than silverfast; more options
use on other scanners unlike silverfast
Use with multiple scanners; value over competitor (Silverfast)
useable- unlike silverfast
Used in the past; Silverfast currently fails to connect to scanner at all; this connected immediately on trial
Used Silverfast and don't want to keep buying a new version for every scanner
Used Silverfast for years but having problems with a few negatives. Tried Vuescan and am really impressed. Will email for technical help but I use the specialNikon 869GR holder and had a couple of issues lining up scan but got it running anyhow
User friendly; robust (had enough of SilverFast)
Using Vuescan with black/white negatives; it seems to maintain details in whites (no overexposure)!  Though I like its color negative exposure abilities too; I have not had success with its color balance capabilites on those same color negatives.  I do not know if IT8 targets would help this.  For most of the color negatives I have tried ;Silverfast has gotten much better color accuracy results without even using an IT8 target.  I wish I knew why; and if I had confirmation that pro version of Vuescan with IT8 target would help then I might buy that.
vastly better than packaged silverfast software
Very fast scans compared to Silverfast; export as DNG raw files (not some proprietary raw format!); working software compared to Silverfast; and good price. Good package; all in all.
Verzweiflung über Silverfast
VueScan appears to work well on my hardware.  I couldn't even get a scan started with SilverFast's demos.
Vuescan demo tested better than Silverfast
VueScan gave superior results compared to SilverFast SE
Vuescan is better than Nikon Scan and Silverfast!
Vuescan is better than SilverFastSE
Vuescan makes it work under MacOs 10.6 in better quality than Silverfast ever did before
Vuescan offers capabilities Epson Scan doesnt & its cheaper than SilverFast!
VueScan seems to be mutch better software for G4050 than Silverfast or bundled hp-software.
vuescan/silverfast ... you won!

Was going to buy Silverfast; but their purchase website is expensive and impossible to understand how to just get a basic version.
way better than Silverfast
Weak Silverfast Support
wechsel von silverfast

Well; Nikon does not support Leopard and my experience with Silverfast not solving problems for previous versions was not too good.
What they sent Silverfast does not work
Will nicht mehr Silverfast upgraden
will Silverfast ersetzen
will work with all my scanners for a one-off fee (unlike silverfast)
Win 7 support & price over silverfast
Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit wird weder von Twain noch mit Silverfast HDR-Studio für Epson-Scanner unterstützt - Ihre Software funktioniert - Besten Dank!  
With mac OSX the support from Microtek for the correct drivers is extremely bad; and after testing Vuescan; I found it to be superior to scan wizard etc.....(and cheaper than Silverfasts solution too!). Thankyou!
work on Mac OS 10.5 (SilverFast 6.5.5r4 certainly does not!)

Works where Scanwizard and Silverfast do not; good color
Your product allows me to access my legacy scanners and new ones as well- all on OSX; with one piece of software -one at a time as needed. Unlike the Silverfast rip-off;  one machine per purchase. Love your concept and I am growing to like your software (on demo so far) as I learn - all at a far more reasonable cost for the much embattled small operater - keep up the good work - look forward to future updates and may be new features. 
your software makes Silverfast a crime to bundle with the plustek
