Epson Perfection 4990 Photo

PC Magazine
3 September 2006
  • Conclusion: The Epson Perfection 4990 Photo does a terrific job scanning photos, and it handles slides better than most flatbed scanners. However, it's also highly photocentric. The only bundled program that isn't meant for photos is an OCR package that's extremely limited by today's standards.
  • Pros: Digital ICE for removing scratches. Color restore feature. Dust removal for scanning film. Film scan quality is among the best for flatbed scanners.
  • Cons: No ADF. Comes with little software for scanning anything but photos and film.

  • Summary: Epson's latest top-of-the-range flatbed/film scanner may be large and relatively pricey but you get plenty of bangs for your buck. The Perfection 4990 Photo combines 4800dpi resolution with a bit depth of 48, and Epson claims its high 4.0 optical density produces scans with smooth and accurate colour and subtle grey gradations. Features of the new model include a MatrixCCD scanning head with microlenses that ensure even light coverage.

  • Excerpt: Epson se targue d’avoir doté son tout dernier scanner à plat de fonctionnalités empruntées aux scanners de films, cherchant à séduire aussi bien les amateurs avertis que les professionnels limités par leur budget. Le Perfection 4990 Photo, nouvelle version du Perfection 4870 Photo, offre une densité optique de 4 D et une résolution optique de 4800x9600 points par pouces, contre 3,8 D et la même résolution pour son prédécesseur.
