Excerpt: I'm scanning a LOT of 4x5 negatives from the forties and fifties that I acquired. The V700 does the job well and I have gotten some excellent images with this scanner. The film holding tray is flimsy, but it does the trick. I'm interested in getting a better film holder to compare results. I'm a novice, so take that into consideration. It met all of my expectations and then some.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Resolution, Widely Compatible
Excerpt: I use this to scan my 120 and 4x5 negatives in my portrait studio. The silverfast software is great. Take a few minutes to review how the software works and you will get amazing results quickly.
Pros: Accurate Color, Easy To Set Up, Excellent Software, Good Bit Depth, Good Resolution
Excerpt: The scanner works great, of course there is a learning curve with it. For me a slow learner when it comes to electronics I think I did fairly well...it does all I want it to do and quite well... My issues are most likely because I'm not doing something correct...for instance: color photographs always have a yellow tint or streak, I do not know how to get rid of that and the glass on the inside appears to have a film on it ...

Excerpt: My V700 never fails. I have owned mine for a number of years and not once have I had a single problem with it. The quality of the scans I get are superb, whether from large format 4x5 film or 35mm, the scanner and Epson's bundled software are versatile enough to handle all my projects. My previous scanner was a Heidleberg Saphir Ultra and it was known at the time to be the "standard". After purchasing and using the V700, I never looked back.
