Product Specifications

The EPSON Perfection 1250 is a high-specification A4 scanner in a class of its own. With a true optical resolution of 1200 x 2400 dpi, fast scanning speeds and an amazing 48-bit per pixel color depth for accurate color reproduction, the results from this scanner are outstanding. Targeted at the home and small business user the Perfection 1250 is extremely easy to set up and use. The USB interface enables Plug and Play connectivity and the 4 QuickStart buttons on the front panel permit the scanning and sending of data with a single press of a button - even enabling photos to be sent directly to the Internet. In addition, the enhanced Epson Twain 5.5 driver features a Full Auto mode enabling minimal intervention from the user, and new features such as Document Type Recognition and Auto Skew Correction ensure that resulting scans are of the highest quality, therefore requiring little, if any, subsequent software manipulation. Epson Smart Panel for Scanner is included with the Perfection 1250 Series enabling customization of the Start button on the front panel to launch any chosen application, as well as offering other functions such as scan to e-mail, scan to OCR, scan for creativity, scan to application photo print and the new 'Scan to Web' feature. All these features coupled with the fact that this is the slimmest 1200 dpi CCD scanner in the world make the Perfection 1250 an excellent value product. The Perfection 1250 can be adapted to scan film with the optional 35 mm transparency unit with slide holders for both film and slides, enabling the reproduction of high-quality photographs.
