What customers say about "Key Specs"
Epson Perfection V700 Photo Scanner
  • At 4800dpi,(6400 seems like overkill and photo-i's reviews indicate 4800 seems to be optimal) from a 35mm transparency you get approximately a 50mb file!
  • I have produced remarkable photos at 3200 dpi resolution, can't imagine what the full 12000 dpi would be. I have not copied B&W negatives yet, but see no reason to be concerned.
  • The biggest advantage is that I can set it up to work with 12 slides at a time using the supplied holder, and still get extraordinarily high resolution images of 5 to 8 mbytes - and I'm using the 6400dpi setting - there's still a 9600 and 12800.
  • I just purchased the Epson Perfection V700 Photo Color Scanner a few weeks ago, to scan 4 x 5 negatives. I needed them to be at a higher resolution because I have the images printed on glass at 4 ft x 5 ft. This scanner is efficient enough to complete such a task.
  • The scan quality is exceptional; far beyond what I was expecting. All the flaws in my past film photography are painfully evident.
Epson V800 Perfection Photo scanner
  • Back to Epson and this is the scanner if you need true high resolution scanning not that fake "Interpolated" resolution other brands promote.
  • This scanner is great! Scans all types of positive and negative film. I bought it to scan the boxes of large format negatives I found in my grandfather's stuff that I inherited. It did a great job scanning, and the process was simple, even fast! Also does a good job on slides. Prints are a given.
  • This flatbed is the best scanner on the market, hands down. I own the V 800 and it is worth every penny.
  • The resolution of the scan was so sharp that we could read prices in the window of a store in the picture. Slide scans were also excellent.
  • First, lets set things straight -- it DOES take a long time for the scanner to scan at a high resolution.

What customers say about "Scanning"
Epson Perfection V700 Photo Scanner
  • This scanner does an excellant job and allows one to correct slide problems before the final copy. And the ICE feature does a remarkable job in producing clean images.
  • I deliberated a while before getting this scanner, comparing reviews for other Epson and Canon scanners. So far I am really impressed. Have used it mainly to scan 6x6 and 4x5 negs and trannies, also positive images.
  • Quality of scans is good, but have upped to 600dpi on the auto setting, to get better quality. That setting allows multiple photos to be done at once, each saved as a separate file, as long as they are not too close together or overlapping.
  • The scan quality has been excellent - much better than I was expecting from a flatbed. The color reproduction has been extremely accurate and the level of detail is superb.
  • I bought this scanner to digatize old photos and slides. I think it does a great job. It's pretty putzie to go through all the steps to get the scans if you want high quality.
Epson V800 Perfection Photo scanner
  • While my older Epson was suppose to do negatives and slides, the work flow and speed was such that I never did many. So far that is all that I have done with the new one.
  • Bottom line, I am very pleased with the scanner’s performance for this, with reflective flat art and photos. Resolution, color depth, and color accuracy are superb.
  • I always use the professsional mode so i can adjust the settings. Since some of my pics had handwriting in the white borders, I always did a preview and adjusted the picture width to capture it all. I can save the settings for different projects like these pics, negatives, color prints, etc.
  • Epson scan represents the best I could come up with after over a dozen scans, tweaking the various settings to achieve the best scan possible.
  • Sad to find out this brand new v800 has a defect. It has a banding issue that places a distinct thin vertical line on the scanned negative.

What customers say about "Features"
Epson Perfection V700 Photo Scanner
  • The Epson, Silverlight and Abbyy OCR software - all of which are included - are impressive. Both the Epson and Silverlight take a little tweaking - I have not yet fully fathomed all they may be capable of. I love this scanner.
  • I have several hundred slides from the 50's on Kodachrome. This thing scans them like a boss. They snap into the provided tray, and I use Vuescan to turn those mothers into JPEGs for me. It's like the best thing ever. The quality is absolutely gorgeous.
  • Batch scanning works great. Bundled software works well
  • The biggest problem - as with all flatbeds - is dust; it is difficult to keep it completely off the glass, so it often shows up in scans.
  • Noisy at times
  • Large footprint on desk
Epson V800 Perfection Photo scanner
  • It connects easily to my Mac OS X (10.6.8), and scans are fine.
  • I was worried that I would need a scanner with a slide feeder to get the job done, but it turned out that by buying a few extra slide holders, I was able to move along reasonably briskly, swapping in and out slides as others were scanning. Overall I am very pleased with the quality of the scans.
  • Got it all connected and started on all the old pictures, with the samples I used this worked much better than I hope, I need to spread out and clean my slides and negatives but this works great
  • Even though I have just begun learning the features and applications of the Epson Perfection V800, it appears that everything is doable. There are movies embedded in the included CD that take me step by step through various procedures.
  • Changing the way the finished photo looks is a simple task in several steps when using the auto-pilot feature with the ability to undo any changes in that step without rescanning the photo.
  • I cannot, however, report the same level of happiness with transparent art and photos – although reviews of this machine heralded slide and negative scanning as its crowning feature.
