Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner

 

The Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner makes high-quality scans from both photos and film, and can scan directly to Facebook and cloud-based sites.

High-quality scans for a flatbed scanner at its price. Can scan slides, negatives, and medium-format film as well as prints. Digital ICE hardware-based dust removal for film. Can upload scans directly to Facebook and cloud-based services.

Lacks photo-editing program. Not ideal for document scanning.

The Epson Perfection V550 Photo Color Scanner's ability to directly post scans to Facebook and popular cloud services is a nice added convenience to keep up with the times. Its impressive scan quality, coupled with features like the ability to scan...

Epson Perfection V550 Flatbed Scanner Review

 

Stephen Waller reviews the Epson Perfection V550, the flatbed scanner capable of scanning 35mm and 120mm film.

High resolution scans ; Effective dust removal ; Software supports multiple file formats ; Histogram compensation adjustment ; Batch scanning up to 12 images

Slow capture times ; Auto exposure not effective with all negative types

It is very capable at scanning slide and film and compares favourably with stand alone models though possibly not quite as sharp pixel for pixel. There is a lot of built in flexibility that does make it possible to attain pleasing results. I would...

Great Low Cost Photo Scanner

 

I haven't had this scanner long but I have scanned over 500 photos since I received it. The automatic picture detection is hit or miss and sometimes detects multiple photos correctly and other times it needs to be done manually, but is easy to do in...

Fast start up and scanning. Works well with slides, negatives and film. Allows scanning of multiple photos at one time creating a separate file for each. Optical resolution up to 6400 dpi. Automatic color restoration and dust elimination work OK for...

Took 6 days for my 3 day shipping. I don't think it was actually in stock yet. Price dropped after I purchased it. Front panel buttons don't work but that is probably because I installed just the basic scanning software and drivers from the Epson...

slide and negative copying

 

" The V550 is one of the best slide and negative copiers that I have ever used. It is fast and easy to set up and the color reproduction and low noise rival slide copiers 4 times the price. "
