Epson Perfection 4180 Photo

 

This high-resolution scanner combines impressive image quality and features with a reasonable price.

This versatile scanner provides state-of-the-art image enhancement and wins hands down in its ability to batch-scan 35mm slides.

Epson Perfection 4180 Photo

 

Add the Epson Perfection 4180 Photo ($250 street) to the small but growing list of flatbed scanners that takes film scanning seriously. It's designed, in part, to scan not just 35-mm slides and film but medium-format film, including 2.25-inch, 120, and...

Better scan quality than most flatbed scanners, particularly for slides. Color restore feature for faded photos. Claimed 4,800 pixel-per-inch (ppi) optical resolution

Dust and grain reduction features work with film only. OCR program had trouble reading Times New Roman fonts

The Epson Perfection 4180 Photo scanner offers better photo scan quality for both prints and film than most flatbed scanners. And the claimed 4,800-ppi optical resolution is more than most people will ever need. We've seen as good or better scans from...

WOWZA!!! IT IS AWESOME!

 

I got this scanner specifically for scanning my wedding pics (medium format). I was VERY hesitant about getting it since I had tried another scanner for 35 mm and it was terrible. I called about getting the professional lab to scan my negatives. They...

A Bargain that May Not Be

 

I had a fine Epson scanner. Then I upgraded a couple years ago to a Minolta Dualscan dedicated slide/negative scanner. That scanned at 2880 dpi. It only held 4 slides or one strip of 6 negative frames. But the quality was excellent. 8x10 prints from an...

Decent scanner at a nice price

 

My previous scanner had worn itself out, with quotes for fixing it well over $100. My scanner doesn’t get a lot of use, particularly with an ability to print to .PDF, but It’s still helpful for scanning and emailing signed documents and ...

Nice functionality for what I paid

having a printer and scanner takes up a lot of room
