Excerpt: Your preference between this photo scanner or the Epson Perfection V700 is likely to depend largely on what you're looking to do with the scanner. This model has terrific image quality with optical resolution of 6400dpi and 48-bit color depth. In that way, it matches the best scans you can get from the V700.
Conclusion: The Epson Perfection V600 scanner is designed for serious amateurs: people who want to scan film and art, remove scratches and dust and save images at very high resolution, and reviews suggest it does all those things well. While the V600 scanner falls short of the better optics (and bigger price tags) of its big brothers, the Epson Perfection V700 Photo (Est. $630) and Epson Perfection V750-M Pro (Est.
Pros: Includes Adobe PhotoShop Elements, Good scratch/dust removal software, Built-in transparency unit
Excerpt: The Good Nice build quality. Easy to set up. Automated front buttons. OCR and photo editing software included. Can use any scanning software. The Bad EPSON Scan does not yield the best scans. Must spend money on better scan software for best results. I developed an interest in our family's photo history a few years back, so while my sister works in Ancestry and Geni.com to put the jigsaw puzzle of our family together, I supply the photos, when available.
Pros: Nice build quality., Easy to set up., Automated front buttons., OCR and photo editing software included., Can use any scanning software.
Cons: EPSON Scan does not yield the best scans., Must spend money on better scan software for best results.
Conclusion: All in all, the Epson Perfection V600 Photo is a flat bed scanner that is characterized by a beautiful design and a simple handling. In case of the scans of non-transparent material, the image quality results to be good, but in the case of the scans of film material, specially the low effective resolution and the low range of density compared to real film scanners make it impossible to digitalize film material in a high quality.
Summary: This is an outstanding scanner. Scans of opaque materials are excellent and the film scans are the best we have seen from a flat bed scanner. The bundled software makes the package good value for the money. There are cheaper scanners, including the fine Epson V350, but the V600 is proof that you get what you pay for.
Pros: Let’s deal with the big question: can a flat bed scanner really produce film scans to compare with a dedicated 35mm scanner? In our opinion most users will be well satisfied with the Epson output. Scanned Kodachrome slides retained colour, detail and subtlety. We could make decent prints from slides scanned at high resolution.
Cons: There is no printed instruction manual and the unit, by default, is set to Automatic mode. In this mode it will not scan negative strips correctly. The scan mode must be set to Professional (even if you think that doesn’t mean you) to get proper control of scanning.
Summary: A capable, easy to use flatbed scanner with the ability to digitise prints, negatives and slides.The Epson Perfection V600 Photo slots in just above the V500 model but has a lower bit depth than the V700, which we reviewed in March 2006 and which remains as the premium model in Epson's range.
Conclusion: Skaner Epson Perfection V600 Photo nie jest jak się okazuje idealny. Warto jednak zwrócić uwagę, że ze skanowaniem materiałów fotograficznych na użytek internetowy radzi sobie bardzo dobrze. ,Do zadań profesjonalnych - włączając w to przygotowanie plików do druku - może okazać się niewystarczajacy. Zwłaszcza ostrość skanu ze slajdu małoobrazkowego nie zachwyca, dodatkowo sprawę pogarsza fakt występowania aberracji chromatycznych.
