Easy to Set Up and Use

Anita, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I have just started using this scanner, prompted by the need to copy and share many hundreds of old family photos and negatives. I have only scanned 50 or so thus far, but did that in one not-too-long sitting.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible

Great clear scanner

  • Excerpt: I used this scanner to scan old prints to make a collage. The scanner was quick, clear, and easy to use. I had only one issue with the software, I initially could only get it to work once, and then had to reinstall everything.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution

Impressive Scans of Medium Format Negatives

CJH, B&H Photo
4 January 2016
  • Excerpt: This is my third flatbed scanner. All did a very good job scanning large documents from letter size down to postcards. Something as small as a postage stamps is more of a challenge. A digital camera with a macro lens will do much better. All this I knew already from my use of Epson's V330.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software

Most cost effective way to scan medium format

IkeWink, B&H Photo
31 December 2015
  • Excerpt: I have yet to fine a less expensive option to scan medium format film... This scanner is great! The quality/resolution of the scans look amazing. I have not experienced any banding issues (which are prevalent in many non flatbed film scanners-where the gradations in a certain color separates).
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution

Excellent Home Scanner

That guy on the lake shore, B&H Photo
30 December 2015
  • Excerpt: Originally purchased to scan 35mm negatives that I still occasionally shoot, because it's much cheaper in the long run than to have a lab do scans during processing. Works great for that, I've easily made 8X10 prints from my color negative scans and could probably go larger if I wanted to.
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Good Resolution, Price
  • Cons: Poor Software, Slow

Best scanner I have ever owned

EJ the Professor, B&H Photo
8 December 2015
  • Excerpt: I use the scanner to create training materials to teach my my fellows about my medical specialty. The images that I obtain are crisp and transfer into Power Point with hardly any further manipulations using Adobe Photoshop. The unit also readily scans old format transperiences (slides).
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible, Works on Network

  • Summary: This replaced a Canon scanner that was not supported on Windows 10. Easy plug and play install, just remember to install software before plugging in hardware. Made a few test scans and proved very easy to use with good results.

Good scanner

Sandalia, B&H Photo
16 November 2015
  • Excerpt: I use it for illustrations, the color is pretty accurate. The color restoration for photos is good too. I don't know if it's a setting I haven't found yet, but sometimes when I put the picture I'm scanning directly in the middle, it scans and clips some of the picture's (illustration) edges off,...

No Scandal Scan

F1 the Blur, B&H Photo
16 November 2015
  • Excerpt: Nice scanner. Faster than my previous one and does film about as well. I like the LED technology. DMax slightly lower than my previous scanner, differences in the film scans not noticable. All the buttons on the front are superflous, in my opinion.
