Excerpt: After I started shooting film on a regular basis, I wanted to view the images without using a darkroom and conventional printing methods. This scanner has an easy to use software and the image quality is great. The scanner is also good for document scanning.
Excerpt: I sent back another, more expansive scanner (Prime Film XE) because it was just too hard to figure out and you need to buy additional software). The Epson Perfection 550 is effortless to use and the images it produces are beautiful, from slides, negatives, and prints.
Summary: I wanted a budget alternative for scanning my B/W photo negatives at high resolution. I have been amazed at the quality and will continue employing this scanner in the future for this purpose. It has been beyond what I anticipated.
Summary: I am an Epson fan and had been looking for an inexpensive way to scan negatives and slides. This scanner is perfect! I do recommend using photo editing software so you can clean up the flaws you will find...negatives and slides usually have dust, fingerprints, and scratches.
Summary: I absolutely love this scanner! I can not say enough good things about it. After my gran passed we found boxes of photos and negatives of the family. Wanting to keep these I bought this scanner- and I am so happy I did.
