The V500 features a front panel set of buttons that offer one touch scanning, which can be done directly to PDF, copying, or will permit you to create an email message with your scan as an attached document. You can also save the file to disk of course, as well as send it to a third party.

The V500 is a great deal like the scanner version of a poitn and shoot camera, and will take on nearly all the tasks that you require. If you set to home mode, you can take control of some of the settings, inclusive of adjusting your brightness and switching to the professional mode, you will have further control, permitting adjustments in color, balance, saturation and several more.

Some of the features include a 6,400-pixel-per-inch (ppi) optical resolution, making scanning 35mm film an easy task, as well as an LED light that means your new V500 won't require warm up times, and will scan immediately, rather than the old style warm up period prior to scanning.

Featuring a hardware-based Digital ICE the V500 scanner will digitally remove dust and scratches from your film and render your photos far more cleanly.

The bundled software includes Photoshop Elements, a photo editor of a more sophisticated nature that is reasonable software for the serious amateur in photography.

The OCR program will save recognizable texts for editing and in searchable PDF format.

  • Slides on v500

    I am scanning a bunch of slides on the v500 and just not getting the results my lab can produce. My images are tack sharp and only just grainy... not much. But the scanner is producing color noisy unsharp images. I have tried pretty much every combination of settings and just can't seem to get the results I was hoping for. Any suggestions?? Am I doing something wrong or just expecting too much for an inexpensive scanner??

  • How does the V500 send the digitized file to iPhoto or Lightroom

    How does the V500 send the digitized file to Photo software like iPhoto9 or Lightroom2? Ray

    Answered by Joey 2009-10-07:

    The digitized file can be dragged and dropped right into Lightroom /iPhoto or export

    Answered by rhardy27 2009-10-10:

    Thanks Joey - I'm guessing that the V500 will store scans in its software until they are moved to Lightroom or iPhoto.
