Mixed feelings

JNash, B&H Photo
24 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I bought this scanner after researching machines capable of 4x5 or larger image scans, so that's what led to this choice. So far, I can't really judge my opinion very well. My first issue is, how do I know if it's truly focusing on the negatives? There is no calibration process, so it comes down to trial and error using the little plastic feet on the film holders. After several tests, I still am unconvinced if I have achieved best focus.
  • Pros: Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible
  • Cons: Difficult Setup, Difficult to Keep Clean, Poor Software, Slow

Defective product

  • Summary: Had it shipped a few days ago and tried to set it up and there was a constant blinking red light. Called Epson and they said it was defective possibly during transit.

  • Excerpt: Just bought a new desktop with win 8.1. I downloaded and installed the win 8.1 driver. It doesn't work. I still have to use my XP desktop to do a scan which works fine. So I know it's not the scanner.

  • Excerpt: I'm completely ambivalent about this scanner.On the one hand, it seems like it was designed to be quite high quality. It can be told to scan at resolutions higher, in certain instances, than the film emulsion and the lens that were used to make the original image. Great!On the other hand, the bundled LaserSoft Imaging SilverFast software has a number of issues that make me wonder how they can stay in business.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
  • Cons: Inaccurate Color, Poor Software

V700

Morgan, Adorama
15 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I have around 7,000 slides to scan. I am a part-time professional, and high quality scans are important to me. The V700 did a fine job scanning the one print I tried, and I imagine it does a great job with documents. However, it did not measure up when it comes to slides. I have tried everything and learned a lot, but the scans are just not crisp. It's as if they are all a little out of focus (which, trust me, they are not). I am returning the scanner today.

  • Excerpt: The scanner works as advertised and its performance is "as required". The EPSON software meets the seem requirements and performance The Adobe and Silverfast software are so buggy and mal-functioning that they need to be salvaged. They are beyond redemption and take away from the scanner.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Quality, Easy to Set Up, Performance

Great, but slow

THE Holy Hand Grenade!, B&H Photo
27 November 2013
  • Excerpt: so far (I've had the item less than a week) all I've done is scan 35mm film - but 120 and 4x5 are in the scanner's future. The scanner takes about 3 hours to scan a 24 exposure roll of 35mm film, somewhat slow...
  • Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Slow

Same problems for years

Mattz, Adorama
1 August 2013
  • Excerpt: You don't have many options for both 35 mm and 120. When researching this it seems the negative carriers and the software have been complained about for years-- especially the neg carriers --- and Epson hasn't improved them so many people buy 3rd party carriers. I'll be doing that soon too.
