Excerpt: I bought this scanner to scan old family photographs. It was installed on my new MacBook Pro. The installation was had one hitch. My MacBook had a level of OS not supported by the scanner software; it was too new. But a call to Epson fixed this immediately and I was soon scanning. This is my 3rd scanner and the simplest installation and the best scans. I wish it would scan larger negatives like the V700 does, but I'll have to use my ScanMaker 4 for that.
Excerpt: Easy to use and easy to set up. Built in software results in excellent quality photos. Additional photo shop software from Adobe somewhat better. Very pleased with this flatbed scanner. Works great with old slides and film. Dust removal feature very nice.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Excerpt: I've had this scanner for about 2 weeks and the results are excellent. Either using negatives or photos, the results are great. Most of what I've scanned are 80 to 100 year old medium format negatives, and the results are better than I ever hoped for.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Excerpt: I've been looking for a good scanner for a while now to backup some old negatives and print out a new portfolio. I tried out several designated film scanners but none of them seemed to work. This scanner isn't the highest in possible but I've gotten clean 11x14 prints out of the 35mm scans. The reflective scanner is nice and crisp as well.
Summary: This is a great machine; it is easy to use and pretty fast when you consider what it is doing. I have scanned more than 8,500 negatives, slides, photos and documents in the last 33 days, and the V600 just keeps on working as advertised. Epson's service is also superb. The first V600 I bought would not upload the software, so I called the Epson helpline.
Summary: I needed a scanner that could scan negatives of all sizes. While this one does not have a specific slot for size 110 film from back in the '70s, it is extremely easy to fit it into one of the other forms. It also scans "positives" which is helpful. Fixing color, etc. is easy and can be done automatically or manually. I simply can't say enough good things about this product. I bought two of them for my business.
